The Probation department is responsible to supervise offenders and alleged offenders of which the court has imposed certain sanctions. This may include random drug/alcohol testing, criminal record checks, urinalysis testing, office visits with little advance notice, etc.
The Probation department will make every effort to help offenders change their behavior, if not one on one, but with resources to help each offender get the help necessary.
