Launch of Tyler Supervision Department Wide

On Monday, October 12, 2020, the Alameda County Probation Department expanded its state-of-the-art, cloud-based automated case management system, Tyler Supervision, throughout the entire department. This system reflects the department’s “first-of-its kind” transition from a legacy system to a 21st century solution.  The ultimate goal of this project was to build a system that supports data-informed practice, transparency, and accountability that allows the Alameda County Probation Department to monitor operations associated with its programs and practices, and its impact on client outcomes.

ACPD COVID-19 Communication

March 16, 2020

To our Probation Clients, Partners and our Community,
 
The ACPD Executive team, staff and our county governmental partners have been working tirelessly to ensure we do everything possible to keep our community safe during this unprecedented time. We have deployed our Emergency Operations Center (EOC), ensuring that we are poised to act as quickly as possible in order to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We are implementing temporary changes in our daily operations and will continue to do so as this emergency unfolds.
 
We have suspended all non-state and non-federally mandated fieldwork immediately until further notice. We are continuing to conduct services on an as needed basis, taking into consideration youth and adults with special needs. We are providing staff with direction on safe client interactions due to this pandemic as well as working to accommodate anyone impacted by this developing situation.
 
Facilities and maintenance staff are increasing the cleaning of common areas in our offices. Hand sanitizers have been provided and will continue to be replenished throughout the Department. It is our goal to keep our probation community safe to the extent possible. Here are steps staff and the community can take to protect yourself and others:

  • Practice physical distancing (also referred to as social distancing).
  • Wash your hands often with liquid soap and water and rub for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a disposable tissue, if available.
  • Stay home from work if you are ill. Consult your personal physician if you have a fever. Remain off work until you have been fever-free for at least 24 hours.
  • Keep sick family members at home until symptoms resolve.
  • Get your flu shot to protect against flu or symptoms like COVID-19.
  • If you are going to travel, check the CDC’s Traveler’s Health Notices for the latest guidance and recommendations for each country to which you travel.

Control Your Fate That Message Can Wait

During the week of February 11th through 17th, the California Highway Patrol Golden Gate Division will be in full force, spreading awareness about the dangers of distracted driving. All uniformed personnel, including the Division Chiefs and all Area Commanders, will be patrolling the roadways to enforce laws pertaining to distracted driving. Simply answering a text message or looking up directions on your phone could change your life, or the life of someone else, forever. The California Highway Patrol reminds you that driving is a privilege: one that should be taken seriously. Driving distracted is not worth a ticket, a crash, or a life.
