What's new in Probation
Probation Department gets a new boss
Tyson Ross has been appointed as the Chief Probation Officer for the La Paz County Probation Department.
Ross has been an employee of La Paz County for over 14 years and has been with Probation for close to 12 years. His latest assignment has been as the Adult Division Supervisor, as well as serving as Interim Deputy Chief Probation Officer just prior to this appointment.
“Tyson brings integrity, and accountability, along with hands on professional experience to his new position,” said Superior Court Judge Samuel Vederman. “Community relations, offender management and victim sensitivity are all areas in which he has taken a keen interest and has excelled. Most importantly, Tyson is a strong advocate for evidence based practices, and, along with his professional judgment, there is no doubt his forthright leadership style will improve the quality of life for our community.”
Ross, his wife Stacie, and three children are long time La Paz County residents, and he now joins the La Paz County Superior Court executive team with Judge Vederman and Clerk of the Superior Court Megan Spielman.
