The Probation Department supervises offenders on community service, diversion, electronic monitoring and probation, completes presentence investigations, collects restitution and provides drug testing for the Court.  The department receives a grant funded by the State of Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction that allows us to operate the Community Service and Electronic Monitoring programs at no cost to the local taxpayer.

Information Sheet

During 2013, 65 offenders participated in the Community Service Program. These offenders worked a total of 1,418 hours at various work sites throughout Sandusky. This program saved our taxpayers a total of $21,506 which otherwise would have been spent housing these individuals in jail for 331days.

Our Electronic Monitoring Program helps alleviate jail overcrowding, while providing 24-hour supervision. This saves jail costs and allows low risk offenders to still work and provide for their families as well as pay fines and restitution. This program admitted 72offenders in 2013. This saved a total of 1,146 jail days, saving the taxpayers $74,490.

In total, the Sandusky Municipal Court Probation Department saved the taxpayers $74,490 in 2013.

Since the implementation of the community service and electronic monitoring programs in 1996, these programs have saved the taxpayers more than $1.9 million.
