Everyone’s safety is important during the COVID-19 breakout. If you or anyone in your home is ill, you have been exposed to anyone who is ill, or you are in an elevated risk group for contracting the COVID-19 virus, please notify your probation officer. Please do not report to the U.S. Probation Offices or treatment appointments if you are ill or have been exposed to anyone who is ill. Please notify your probation officer and treatment provider and your appointments will be rescheduled. Our staff is taking every precaution to minimize the spread of infection. Probation Officers who become ill will not be visiting you in the community to avoid exposing you or your family to the virus. Please contact your officer with any questions or concerns.

Marihuana News Flash

Recreational marihuana use may be legal in Illinois, but it remains illegal under federal law. This means that if you are on any form of federal supervision, you cannot use or possess marihuana. Please contact your assigned probation officer for additional information.
