Probation Station Education Program

Mission and Purpose


All too often defendant pleads guilty even if they are innocent without really understanding their legal rights or how they are being affected. The mission of Probation Station is to provide juveniles and young adults, defendants, those formerly incarcerated, parents and the community with guidance through the criminal justice and specifically the probation system.

Probation Station’s educational program curriculum aims to prevent young people from becoming a part of the criminal justice system through education. Students will understand the basic functions of the criminal justice system, and gain increased knowledge of the criminal justice system including process components, language and history. Students will become educated on the costs and consequences related to common decisions made by defendants as well as  learning the importance of avoiding being entrapped in the criminal justice system. Once the course is complete, a spelling bee and a criminal justice lingo bingo game for the students and celebration with their families are hosted.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVE

  • Increased knowledge of the criminal justice system including process components, language and history
  • Increased understanding of the costs and consequences related to common decisions made by defendants.
  • Increased sense of preparedness to make decisions related to the criminal justice system
  • Decrease the level of anxiety related to encounters with the criminal justice system.
