On September 23, 2013, Don Travis, Chief Probation Officer of Howard County and the President of the Probation Officers’ Professional Association of Indiana, announced that he is leaving his positions to work for the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS). See the announcement here.
Although DCS has not announced what Mr. Travis’ new role will be, one would assume it will be working with the state’s probation officers and DCS concerning provision of funding for services for juvenile delinquents. Issues with funding approvals for juvenile delinquents were discussed in this prior post.
We await the news.
