PROBATION DEPARTMENT

Rincon Municipal Court also includes the Probation Department. A Probation Officer will be present at the time of your court proceedings. The primary duty of a Probation Officer is to enforce the court’s order by working closely with court personnel and maintaining regular contact with the probationer. State law requires mandatory probation for certain offenses. For those who are ordered to pay unusually high fine amounts, the judge may also order probation. However, when a person is placed on probation, he or she becomes subject to several additional conditions of the probation order, regardless of the type of offense for which they appear in court. For more information about the Probation Department, please send your questions or concerns to rinconprobation@cityofrincon.com.
