In January 2009, Armstrong County will have a new probation officer who will specialize in offenders with serious drug and alcohol problems. This new program is separate from Armstrong County’s drug court. Additionally, violent offenders will not qualify for the new supervision program. Compared to other probationers, offenders who are admitted to the program will have increased supervision.
