Doug Pardue New Manager District 10

RALEIGH - Correction Secretary Mack Jarvis named Doug Pardue the Division of Adult Probation and Parole manager for Judicial District 10 which includes Wake County.

Pardue will manage the county’s probation officers who supervise more than 6,700 probationers.

"Doug Pardue’s experience and skill have prepared him to be an effective manager," said Secretary Jarvis. "He has been a leader in our department helping to establish community corrections programs that tightened our control over offenders."

Pardue began his corrections career in 1976 as probation and parole officer in Wake County. In 1983, he became the county’s first intensive probation officer. Six years later, Pardue was named a chief probation and parole officer supervising other probation officers and heading up the county’s electronic house arrest program. He is one of the department’s certified general instructors which allows him to provide basic and in-service training to probation staff.

"I want us to move forward with the programs the Division of Adult Probation and Parole started like community policing, victim advocacy and officer safety," Pardue said. "The officer safety program is one of the best things we’ve ever done. Its important that we make the sure our officers know we’re concerned about them."

Pardue is a Forsyth County native from the community of Rural Hall. He is a graduate of North Forsyth High School in Winston-Salem. He graduated from NC State University in 1975.

Pardue’s family includes wife Mary Ann, daughters Meredith and Jennifer and stepson Justin. He is active in Wake County youth sports programs.
