Probation officer Melissa Chin-Hing understands that her job goes way beyond checking in with people on probation.

“Every day we are working to rehabilitate people and reintegrate them into society,” says Melissa. “We connect them with programs that help them get their lives back on track. Most importantly we ensure that the public is safe.”

Melissa works with public agencies and non-profit organizations to coordinate services and programs and make our probation system work.

Melissa is only one of many probation officers across Connecticut whose work is being threatened by state budget cuts.

State employees like Melissa Chin-Hing are vital to Connecticut’s public safety. We need to keep them doing work that matters.
