Carver County Court Services operates under the county probation delivery system. Minnesota Statute 244.19 specifically outlines the appointment, compensation, and powers and duties with respect to our probation officers. Upon being appointed by the Chief Judge of the First Judicial District, probation officers must "act under the orders of the court in reference to any person committed to their care by the court." In order to fulfill the orders of the court in an effective and efficient manner, Court Services must deliver a step-by-step array of services. These services include, but are not limited to: Intake and Assessment, Supervision, Programs and Referrals, and Probation Violations/Sanctions Conferences.
