Welcome to the Henry County Probation Department webpage. The Henry County Probation Department serves all three Henry County Circuit Courts through the preparation of presentence investigation reports, preliminary investigation reports, and the supervision of misdemeanor, felony, and juvenile offenders.

In the completion of these duties, the department provides protection of the community by identifying and reporting continued criminal and/or delinquent activity. Office visits, community contacts, and urine drug screening are all key components in the supervision of offenders and in reinforcing law-abiding behavior. The department also provides services or refers offenders to appropriate programs to increase their competency and support rehabilitation.
