Q. I need information on and/or for probation officers.
There are many great resources available for probation officers and, of course, for students who are researching the roles of probation officers.
Consult the Occupational Outlook Handbook to view information about careers as a probation officer. Explore all tabs, especially "What They Do" and "Work Environment." This resource can also be used to find key terms to use in searching our databases. The options below will help you find great information on justice studies resources:
