Wednesday, June 22, 2011
On June 15, DoP and the Bronx Borough President hosted “Small Steps, BIG CHANGES,” a symposium on Adult and Juvenile probation services.  Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. joined DoP Deputy Commissioners Ana Bermudez and Clinton Lacey in welcoming an audience of DoP staff, service providers and probation clients to the event.  Bronx District Attorney Robert T. Johnson and Bronx Administrative Judge Efrain Alvarado also spoke.  A panel of DoP Branch Chiefs , Supervisors, Probation Officers, and Probation Officer Trainees from our Adult and Juvenile offices briefly explained the work they do and the services they offer before taking questions from the audience.  Representatives from service providers such as Bronx Community Solutions, Children’s Aid Society, FEDCAP and Mustard Seed set up tables and provided information to the probation clients.  The event was organized by Assistant Commissioner Sharun Goodwin.  Click here to view photos of the event.
