Dept. of Probation opens new resource waiting room
The Department of Probation received a recent facelift that officers say will likely deter repeat offenders. Department Commissioner Vincent Schiraldi says the office's new waiting room is more welcoming than the old design, which he says left clients with a poor impression of the system. Officials say the space, featuring new benches and new computers, can now be a resource hub where clients can learn from community organizations and appreciate public safety.
