BEHIND THE BADGE As the largest probation services agency in the United States, the Los Angeles County Probation Department requires extensive internal day-to-day services to keep it running smoothly. From landscaping, maintenance, and mail distribution to computer systems, financial resources, and employee wellness, the men and women who work behind the scenes make up the Department’s Administrative Services Bureau (ASB). ASB is comprised of the Professional Accountability Bureau, Information Systems Bureau, Budget and Fiscal Services Unit, the Human Resources Division, Management Services, and the Contracts and Grants Management unit. ASB prepares and monitors the Department’s budgets, provides examinations and facilitates recruitments and hiring of staff, operates the Return-to-Work Program’s administration, provides payroll services, conducts employee relations, and civil service advocacy. Additionally, ASB manages facility services and provides ancillary services throughout the Department. Our employees are our most valuable asset and our goal is to make sure that they are safe and that their physical, emotional, financial and career needs are supported so they can focus on the important work they do in the facilities and community.
