Mission Statement

The Kickapoo District Court Probation Department is here to provide help, support and a balanced approach to the Offender, Community and the Justice System.
Our mission is to help restore balance to the offender (balance is a state of being in harmony with oneself, clan, tribe and creator) and assuring restorative justice to our community. Our approach is to use Evidence Based Practices (EBP) to bring symmetry back and re-center the Offender.

Evidence Based Practices (Why?)

Assess the client and improve the outcome while reducing recidivism through best practices. Use the best research evidence and assessments to develop interventions strategies that best serve the offender and community. Enhance collaborations between the court, treatment facilities and the community.
