County Probation Opens Community Office in North Park
The San Diego County Probation Department celebrated the opening of a new Community Support Office in North Park on Tuesday. Chief Probation Officer Tamika Nelson told a crowd of more than 50, the people who work in the new building are committed to one mission: protecting public safety by coaching clients to restore their lives, families, and the communities they live in. County Probation wants to provide services to clients while balancing support and accountability.
The new office on Ohio Street was built with input from the community and support from neighbors. The building includes rehabilitative services, a space for community meetings, a demonstration kitchen to teach cooking skills, and a food pantry.
