PRIT Banner


On May 1, 2018, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors established the Probation Reform and Implementation Team (PRIT), as part of an ongoing and focused effort to reform the LA County Probation Department. The team is charged with transforming the existing Probation Commission into a Probation Oversight Commission (POC) and coordinating existing recommendations for systemic reform of the Probation Department into a comprehensive plan.

The PRIT is a temporary body made up of nine people, including five appointees (one from each LA County Supervisorial District), a representative from the Probation Department, a representative from the Office of County Counsel, a representative from the Chief Executive Office and a Consultant Chair who coordinates and facilitates the work of the team.

The Probation Oversight Commission


The PRIT is charged with creating a new entity in County government called the Probation Oversight Commission (POC). POC will be an independent body that will advise the Probation Department and advise and monitor the Department for the Board of Supervisors. POC will serve as a liaison and mediator between the Probation Department, residents, and community-based organizations to address issues impacting Departmental policy/practice or the impacts of those policies/practices on the community.
