LOS ANGELES COUNTY, Calif. — The Los Angeles County Probation Department received additional funds for a probation monitoring program for people convicted of driving under the influence.

The $370,000.00 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) will go toward check-ins with individuals on probation supervision to make sure they are following court-ordered terms of their probation.

“The community monitoring program serves as an additional tool to assist our clients with navigating their treatment plan and maintaining compliance with the courts orders,” said Los Angeles Probation Department Chief Probation officer Adolfo Gonzales. “The program aims to provide additional guidance and aid in reducing the number of individuals on probation supervision who are arrested or cited continuously for DUI, ultimately providing a safer community for all.”
