Why should your company become a Corporate Member?
Never in its history has Indiana Probation experienced such monumental and progressive change as it has just in the last few years. Probation Officer personnel have nearly doubled since 1993 in a statewide effort to meet workload demands; departments are now more than ever looking toward advanced technologies and other means to improve and augment offender monitoring & supervision strategies; departments are reaching out to a vast array of companies who offer competitive, cost-effective, and reliable programs and services for both adult and juvenile offenders.
Our statement of purpose: to “support, promote, and encourage quality probation services in the interests of public safety and service to the Courts of the State of Indiana.” Toward this end, the Executive Board of the Association and the general membership believe our efforts can be greatly enhanced through strong partnerships by way of Corporate Members.
It makes sense to affiliate with the only professional association that represents over 900 probation officers and probation departments from every county in Indiana. Corporate Membership in POPAI represents your gateway to marketing your products, programs, and services to our membership!
