Contra Costa County, California, is seeking a Chief Probation Officer.

Contra Costa County was incorporated in 1850 as one of the original 27 counties of the State of California. It is one of nine counties in the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Area and covers approximately 733 square miles extending from the northeastern shore of San Francisco Bay east about 50 miles to San Joaquin County. Contra Costa County is one of the fastest growing work forces among Bay Area counties, with growth in its employment base being driven primarily by the need to provide services to an increasing local population and the presence of relatively high-wage skilled jobs.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience managing a large workforce of dedicated probation professionals. A strong ethical compass and a commitment to the professional development and well-being of the departmentís employees is required. The Chief Probation Officer will be politically savvy yet apolitical and will have in-depth experience in organizational and personnel management including setting priorities, holding staff accountable, and moving the department forward in a fast-paced environment. The next Chief Probation Officer is expected to embrace evidence-based programs that induce cognitive and behavioral rehabilitation in those being supervised.
