Operation Safe at Home
By the Santa Barbara County Probation Department
On December 20, 2022, 11 Deputy Probation Officers with the Santa Barbara County Probation Department conducted county-wide wellness checks of youth on community supervision.
A wellness check involves the assessment of the living environment and the needs of the youth and/or family members, in addition to providing information on probation and community resources. To support families in need during the holidays, grocery store gift cards and toys for younger siblings, generously donated by CommUnify’s Toys for Tots program, were delivered to families.
In total, 30 homes were visited during which these care packages were distributed and information was provided to families on additional resources available to meet a variety of needs during the winter months.
The Santa Barbara County Probation Department supervises over 200 youth in the community. Deputy Probation Officers provide both accountability and opportunity to those they supervise. They are committed to community safety as well as family wellness.
