 Michael Stokes named Probation/Parole Officer of the Year

 ASHEBORO -  Michael N. Stokes, intermediate probation officer in Randolph County, was recognized today by Director Michael StokesRobert Lee Guy and the Division of Community Corrections as one of eight probation/parole officers of the year. 

 Stokes also serves as special operations Electronic House Arrest (EHA) Officer, responding to schedule violations, equipment problems, setting up new cases and disconnecting units.

 Officer Stokes recently assisted the Special Ops Chief Probation/Parole Officer with development of an action plan which has resulted in substantial increase in the use of the EHA sanction by district judges. He monitors probation violation hearing dates of other officers and meets with officers to discuss offenders who could benefit from the strict supervision of EHA in lieu of revocation.  He maintains a regular presence in the courtrooms and provides court officials with information regarding the use of EHA.

 Gov. Michael F. Easley has declared July 15-21, 2007, as Probation, Parole and Community Supervision Officer’s Week in North Carolina in observance of the important public safety work done by more than 2,000 probation/parole officers working across North Carolina.
