The Probation Division of Puyallup and Milton Municipal Court provides assessments and offender supervision in a Judge-Supervised probation model. The Probation Officer monitors compliance with probation conditions as the court directs, in writing, by the sentencing or supervising judge. Probation Services are usually provided for high impact and repeat offenders, such as those convicted of violent offenses, and Driving Under the Influence or other misdemeanor offenses. The probation department only monitors cases placed on probation by a Puyallup or Milton Municipal Court Judge, Pro Tem, or Commissioner.
Most cases placed on probation have an active treatment requirement, including alcohol/drug treatment, domestic violence treatment, parenting classes, or mental health treatment. After the court imposes conditions, the department monitors compliance with those conditions and notifies the court immediately of any non-compliance issues. In addition, the probation officer performs both pre-sentence and post-sentence investigations to provide background information to the court.
Probation can provide resources for treatment programs, human services, sober support group meetings, and other programs/services as available. This department does not provide courtesy supervision for other jurisdictions and does not transfer cases to other departments (unless the case falls under the Interstate Compact).
For those on probation, please note there have been many changes regarding misdemeanant offenders who wish to move out of state. If you want to move out of Washington, please speak with your probation officer for further information.
