During the week of July 18th through the 24th, 2021, the State of Texas and Williamson County recognizes the essential responsibilities performed by probation, parole, and community supervision professionals during Pretrial, Probation, and Parole Supervision (PPPS) Week.

PPPS week, which is observed annually in July, was signed into proclamation by Texas State Governor Greg Abbott on July 9, 2021. The week serves to recognize the contributions and critical role of pretrial, probation and parole officers nationwide in promoting positive change in their respective communities.

Williamson County is committed to reducing recidivism through the Williamson County Community Supervision and Corrections Department (CSCD) program, which serves the community by providing supervision services, in addition to supportive inpatient and outpatient treatment services for criminal offenders.

Currently, Williamson County CSCD has 76 staff members who supervise approximately 2,800 criminal justice-involved adults in Williamson County. Williamson County CSCD is proud to be one of the highest-performing CSCDs in the State of Texas, providing supervision services, as well as supportive inpatient and outpatient treatment services.

Members of our community are encouraged to join together during this time to honor those who work in this field to make our communities a better place to live.
