The Columbia County Board of Commissioners is proud to promote National Pretrial, Probation, and Parole Supervision Week, held annually during the third full calendar week of July. Specifically, we would like to thank the hard-working staff of Columbia County's Community Justice Department. These individuals leave their homes and families daily to perform their essential duties, knowing the risks they face while on the job.
“Our Community Justice Department is on the front lines, building meaningful relationships, which for some individuals, are the first relationships towards a new start,” said Kellie Jo Smith, Columbia County Commissioner. “We, as a community, cannot thank them enough.”
While it is fitting to honor the Community Justice Department's staff during this time, our appreciation is not limited to just one week per year; we extend our thanks to these dedicated individuals each and every day. Please join us as we honor Columbia County's community corrections professionals and those nationwide who perform their work selflessly, away from the public eye, to ensure our communities are safe.
