Probation and Parole officers recognized for their services

Governor Brad Henry has declared the week of July 15 as Probation, Parole and Community Supervision Week.

Probation and Parole officers operate in all 77 counties in the State of Oklahoma and function within the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.

Officers are CLEET (Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training) certified peace officers whose jurisdiction covers the entire state. Officer activities are related to the supervision of defendants who have been placed on community supervision by the district court.

Probation and Parole officers also monitor offenders released by the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board, early release inmates monitored under the Global Positioning System, or GPS, and probationers and parolees transferring to Oklahoma from other states under the Interstate Compact agreement.

Officers utilize a “Level of Service Inventory” to assess offender risk in the community in order to determine appropriate supervision per offender. All officers are certified in this process.

The Muskogee County Probation Office is located at 3105 Azalea Park Drive in Muskogee. All officers in Muskogee County are supervised by Wayne McClure, and he can be reached at 681-6603.

The office is staffed by Probation Officers Todd Peck, Suzy Rogers, Mike Sharpe, Christine Sisto, Brandy Toth and Julie Walker.

In addition to supervising caseloads averaging 69 offenders, the officers complete overflow intakes from the Probation Office located at the courthouse and several parole investigations. Toth has a specialized sex offender caseload and is responsible for the supervision of 53 sex offenders.

The Probation and Parole Intake Office is located in the Muskogee County Courthouse. The office is staffed by Probation Officers Daniel Beats and Anne Reese.

They both supervise generic caseloads.
