As you will see in the attached resume, I have a B.S. in Criminal Justice, and have been employed as a Probation Officer for the past four years at The GEO Group for all county and state criminals in Fair Lawn, NJ. In this time, I have gained considerable experience in handling, scheduling, and helping to rehabilitate criminals through the criminal justice program and communicating with both the court and community programs to find suitable means of doing just this. This requires an ability to work long hours, handle many criminals at one time, and keep constant tabs on their whereabouts and if they are serving their probation in keeping with the court order. I also have experience in dealing with criminals who break probation and must be reported and offered court revaluation. I am very competent at what I do, am very organizational, and love working with people.
