This profile describes the structure and operations of probation violations in Hennepin County. Hennepin County Probation is a large department with over 900 probation staff, 65 judges and many more public defenders, city and county attorneys. Interviews were only conducted with a small sample of professionals and probationers involved in probation violations and revocations. The county attorneys are also not represented in this profile as they declined participation in the interviews.
