Scott T. Howard, Chief Bailiff/Chief Probation Officer
Katherine A. Suvar, Probation Officer 419.872.3925 Fax: 419.872.7905
The Probation Division provides supervision of offenders as ordered by the court. It also conducts pre-sentence and expungement investigations, makes referral to community based social service agencies, and coordinates restitution payment.
You will pay a $50.00 probation services fee as a result of being placed on probation in the Perrysburg Municipal Court.
You will keep the Probation Department notified of your current address and phone number at all times. You must notify the Probation Department within seven (7) days of any address change.
You shall be a law-abiding citizen.
You will report to the Probation Department promptly at the time and date arranged.
You will not purchase, possess, sell, distribute, or use any controlled substance or drug paraphernalia except by the prescription of a licensed physician.
You shall abide by all rules or additional requirements established between you and the Probation Department as spelled out in any signed Probation Agreement form.
You have been sentenced to the Wood County Justice Center. Your jail sentence, or a portion thereof, has been suspended for now to give you the opportunity to prove that you can change your behavior and lead a law-abiding life. That opportunity is called probation. Probation is not a right; it is a privilege which the court is free to give or deny. Probation imposes rules upon you which you must obey. Your failure to do so will result in your return to court as a probation violator.
It is the duty of the Probation Department to require you to live by the conditions of probation. The Probation Department has the authority and responsibility to enforce the conditions of probation and to notify the court of any violations of these conditions. The judge may order a warrant for your arrest if he has reason to believe that you have violated any condition of your probation.
You are hereby advised that the court may, at any time, revoke the privilege of probation for good cause, modify the conditions of your probation, or extend the period of probation. If your probation is revoked, the original jail sentence may be imposed and you will be committed to the Wood County Justice Center.
Wood County Electronic Monitoring Program 1960 East Gypsy Lane Road Bowling Green, Ohio 43402 419.354.1908
The Wood County Electronic Monitoring (EM) Program allows eligible offenders to serve all or part of their jail sentence at a residence approved by the Probation Division. The daily EM costs, paid by the offender, are based upon a percentage of your verified hourly wage, unless you are self-employed. Any self-employed person, contractor, or sub-contractor will be charged a flat rate of $10.00 per day. You are expected to pay all program fees on a weekly basis by submitting cash, check, or money order directly to the Wood County Electronic Monitoring Program.
The offender wears an ankle transmitter 24 hours a day and is monitored by electronic surveillance equipment through your phone line to monitor your presence and/or absence from your home confinement area. Approved leave time is granted in advance by the EM staff (provided the proper verification has been supplied) for employment, treatment, medical appointments, court hearings, or other reasonable pursuits that enhance the overall rehabilitation plan.
Every offender must comply with all terms and conditions of the EM program. Offenders may not consume alcohol or illegal drugs while on EM. Prior to entering the EM program the offender must provide a clean urine drug screen. The cost of drug testing is $5.00 per substance tested for. The offender will be tested at random while in the program.
Any non-compliance with the terms and conditions of the EM program will result in arrest and immediate incarceration in the Wood County Justice Center. All EM related fees paid are non-refundable.
