Parole and Probation agents in Maryland supervise more than 66,000 men and women from 43 offices in all corners of the state. The supervision includes approximately 15,000 convicted drunken drivers who are assigned to the Drinking Driver Monitor Program.

The new agents heard uplifting messages from Patricia Vale, the Acting Director of Parole and Probation who also heads the DPSCS South Region; and from the Deputy Secretary of DPSCS, J. Michael Stouffer. Both leaders expressed their gratitude for the commitment of the new agents.

The agents represent a broad mix of seasoned law enforcement, correctional people and recent college grads. They will be assigned to Parole and Probation offices from Cumberland to Baltimore, and the DC suburbs to southern Maryland.

DPSCS salutes the diligent efforts of all Parole and Probation agents, who are truly unsung heroes in battle to make a safer Maryland.
