Adult Probation Services' Mission Statement:
Frank J. Scherer
Allegheny County Adult Probation and Parole is charged by the Court of Common Pleas
with the responsibility of providing effective community-based alternatives to incarceration,
improving public safety, partnering with community and law enforcement resources
and promoting positive behavioral change from offenders.
The core beliefs supporting the Mission are:
- Through individual assessment, direction and assistance,
most offenders can and will become contributing members of our community.
- That offenders can and will be held accountable for the
harm they cause to individuals as well as to the community at large.
- Recognizing our responsibility for public safety, a comprehensive
system of community corrections, including incarceration and re-entry, will be developed
- The strengths and resources of our community are vital to
the success of our offenders.
- That excellence in the quality of Court services requires
sensitivity to racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity.
