Nebraska State Probation Mission
We, the leaders in community corrections, juvenile and restorative justice are unified in our dedication to delivering a system of seamless services which are founded on evidence-based practices and valued by Nebraska’s communities, victims, offenders and courts. We create constructive change through rehabilitation, collaboration, and partnership in order to enhance safe communities.
Probation Administrator Ellen Fabian Brokofsky (Bio.) was named State Probation Administrator on October 1, 2005, to direct the statewide delivery of Probation services in Nebraska.
The Legislature created the Office of Probation Administration and outlined administrative functions to provide central management of Probation services which, in turn, enhance public protection and offender rehabilitation.
Under the structure of the Nebraska Supreme Court and the Administrative Office of the Courts & Probation, Probation has faithfully worked to not only improve the safety of all Nebraskans, but moreover, to assist all juveniles and adults under our supervision to become productive citizens.
Probation officers make lasting changes in local communities by assisting both juveniles and adults to become productive members of society. Nebraska Probation utilizes individualized approaches focused on evidence-based principles and practices, and employs a dedicated and skilled professional staff to meet this goal. Providing this purposeful intervention, Nebraska Probation strives to continue to impact community safety for the better.
