Question How can I become a probation officer?

Answer Probation officers in New York State work directly for one of 57 county probation departments or the City of New York Probation Department. Each local department administers probation within its own jurisdiction. Each county and the City of New York has a municipal civil service agency that administers the civil service exams for the probation officer title. The New York State Department of Civil Service maintains the addresses and telephone numbers for each civil service agency as well as recruitment and examination information.

The NYS Division of Probation and Correctional Alternatives maintains the address and phone number for each probation department.
