General Supervision Unit

This unit handles a wide variety of probation and parole offenders supervised under standard conditions of general supervision. These cases may include offenders sentenced to supervision in Cumberland County Court of Common Pleas and/or eligible sentences transferred into Cumberland County from other counties.

There are currently 13 probation/parole officers assigned to the general supervision unit. Most officers are based in our main office location, 4 East Liberty Avenue, Carlisle, across from the main Courthouse.
