History of Clinton County Probation

History of Clinton County Probation
In 1901, the first Probation Law was enacted in New York State.  In 1951, Clinton County began offering probation services with Mr. Carmen Santor hired as Clinton County’s first and only Probation Officer.  In 1956 the department grew to three officers with Carmen Santor being the Chief Probation Officer until his appointment as Probation Director in 1958.  Following his retirement in 1992, Sara Tullar Fasoldt became the Department’s second Director in 1993 until her promotion to Deputy Executive Director of NYS Division of Probation & Correctional Alternatives in 1999.  In February 2000, David M. Marcoux was appointed as the Department’s third and present Director.   
The current building which houses the Probation Department was originally constructed in 1889 as the Clinton County Jail.  The Jail was housed here until 1989 when it was moved to its present location.  In 2000 Clinton County began renovations of the building with contractor Conroy International under the architectural design of McKenna Associates.  With the help of funds received from Senator Ronald Stafford for an internal elevator, construction was completed and operations of the Probation Department began on July 13, 2001 in the renovated building.
Currently the Clinton County Probation Department has a total staff of thirty-one employees: one Probation Director, three Probation Supervisors, five Senior Probation Officers, nine Probation Officers, four Probation Assistants, one Court Referral Specialist, one Project Counselor, one Office Manager, one Sr. Account/Clerk Typist, one Account Clerk Typist, two Sr. Typists, and one Victim Services Advocate.
