VOA Gives Quarterly Report To County Commission

Scott Duncan, Probation Coordinator for Volunteers of America of the Northern Rockies, recently gave an update to the Johnson County Commissioners on services they are providing to the county for adult and juvenile diversion, probation and drug court services.

Duncan gave the numbers for the quarter ending in June of this year, saying his office had been “quite busy.”

Duncan said there were 13 individuals on diversion in April, one on probation and five in drug court, which included adults and juveniles.

In May he said they saw an increase to 19 in diversion, but in June the numbers had dropped off again.

Duncan was asked to explain what the diversion program is and how it works.

Duncan continued, explaining that the probation services they offer are after the individual goes to court and is sentenced to a period on probation.

Then they also offer drug court services, typically for individuals with two or more drug and/or alcohol offenses which includes drug and alcohol treatment.
For all programs involving juveniles, they must maintain good grades and attend school without being tardy, he said.
