Message from the Chief

Gina Johnson2024Welcome to the Ventura County Probation Agency! Our mission is simple: To promote effective interventions, individual accountability, and community well-being. The 439 members of our Agency are committed to protecting the community, supporting the court, assisting victims and to helping to rehabilitate individuals. Officers accomplish this by conducting investigations for court proceedings, providing community supervision, and providing safety and security to youthful offenders housed at our local detention facility. Civilian members of our Agency facilitate our work and our mission by providing clerical, IT, fiscal, human resources and labor relations support. We take pride in our collaborative work with law enforcement agencies; the Courts and other justice partners; social services, mental health services and community-based organizations/non-governmental agencies.

We are committed to continuous process improvement; applying best practices; and being a learning organization. That being said, we are currently in the process of implementing our 2021-2025 Strategic Plan. It has been an “all hands-on deck” effort, involving all members of our Agency, as well as our stakeholders. It is through our Strategic Plan that our Agency will continue to evolve, improve, and meet the needs of the community.

We are honored to serve the Ventura County community.

We hope you find our website helpful and encourage your feedback.
