due to COVID-19 restrictions (last update 12/4/2020)
Effective immediately and until further notice, Allegheny County Adult Probation is again working under emergency order. The majority of staff will be working remotely. The EHM Unit will be fully operational. With the exception of sex offenses, all other cases will be placed on mail or phone contacts. We will continue to accept IC transfers that are sent in electronic format only. We will not be completing DNA or conducting urinalysis. IC packets should be emailed to: Craig Jonas at Craig.Jonas@alleghenycourts.us and copy: Ashlee Lynn at AALynn@alleghenycourts.us
Bradford County has experienced a spike in positive COVID cases over the past 30 days and as a result this department is halting field work and face to face contacts unless it is an emergency. We will continue phone/zoom/mail contacts. Our county will accept IC transfers but be aware that we are limited to these restrictions, therefore delayed processing may occur. This protocol will be reviewed 01/02/2021.
Chester County is accepting transfer in cases. The client’s will be supervised by tele-communication as the main line of communication or placed on pro track/pro mobile if appropriate. We are conducting face to face contacts on a limited basis and field work is also being limited at this time. Our staff are still working remotely when possible and all staff have access to their emails at home. In addition, if there is an EHC component the hook up may be delayed depending on the availability of equipment.
Please be advised that the Erie County Courthouse is closed to the public effective Monday 11/30/20 through Monday 1/4/21 therefore we will not be scheduling or processing transfers until the first of the year.
Our office has been hit really hard with a COVID-19 surge and we are operating with an extremely reduced (bare bones) staff. We will still accept intercountry transfers but there will be a significant delay processing them. Please use the following email firstname.lastname@example.org for any transfer requests.
Montgomery County is operating on a limited basis and our offices remain closed. We are not sending transfer cases out and, in turn, will not be accepting courtesy cases for supervision. Consideration for acceptance will only be given to cases with special circumstances (Domestic Violence, Sex Offender, SMIs). Electronic Monitoring cases cannot be monitored for other counties at this time.
Effective 6/1/2020, the Philadelphia Adult Probation and Parole Department is reopened; however, we will not be scheduling clients to report until further notice. Cases being transferred into Philadelphia will continue to be processed; send requests via CPCMS with a verified address & phone number. Clerical Staff and Administration will be in the office 5 days a week. Any accepted cases will continue to be supervised; with all contacts taking place via phone and email. Probation Officers will be working on a rotational basis.

Sullivan & Wyoming County
Wyoming and Sullivan Counties are accepting intercounty transfer case but it should be known that we will be doing most of the contact via telephone, mail, zoom, or at a/ 6-foot distance at a minimum outside the courthouse. Officers to refrain from having any unnecessary contact with offenders at this time.
Washington County is still accepting Inter County Transfers at the moment. However, our policy is to verify and approve the residence prior to accepting the case. Currently, we are operating on a 2-week work from home rotation with only 4 Officers physically in the office. When they are in the office they are restricted to the office unless an emergency arises. It may take a while before the address is approved. I would caution the other counties before sending a transfer to avoid offenders being unsupervised.
As of December 9, 2020, Wayne County will not be accepting any transfer-in cases from other counties due to Covid-19. Our office is temporary closed to the public until further notice from the Court. Please contact us before sending a case to see if the Covid-19 restriction is lifted: Department # 570.253.5970 ext. 4120 or email our Intercounty Coordinator, Probation Officer Lisa Salak @ email@example.com.
