Since 2009 the City of Glasgow Police Department Misdemeanor Probation Project has been an unquestionable success. The Misdemeanor Probation Officer (MPO) has a caseload of 25-35 persons who were convicted of Partner Family Member Assaults and Violations of Protection Orders. The MPO holds offenders accountable for their crimes by completing exhaustive pre-sentence investigations, tracking compliance with sentence requirements, establishing MPO supervision fees, and working with applicable community based services groups. The Misdemeanor Probation Project and the Victim Specialist Project form a unit that ensures victim safety and offender accountability. The project is an integral part of the community-based philosophy that the City of Glasgow and partnering agencies have adopted.
