Too many people don’t or can’t comply with probation and wind up back behind bars.

For defendants who need help getting back on track, a new program is launched in Tulsa County. D.A. Steve Kunzweiler’s office is partnering with several local non-profits.               

The idea is to aid those on probation to meet court ordered conditions, potentially avoiding jail or prison time and reducing inmate numbers.

Information on the Probation Partnership Program is available at the D.A's office, the Tulsa County Public Defender's office, Family and Children's Services, and the Women's Justice Team.
