Probation Services

The Edmonds Municipal Court employs one full-time Probation Officer, Tracie Padilla. The Probation Officer provides pre-trial and post-conviction monitoring and supervision services for the court. Their goal is to assist and support clients in successfully complying with the conditions set forth by the court.

Clients will be placed on either active, monitored, or records check Probation. Active probation clients meet with the Probation Officer once per month as ordered by the court. During these meetings, the Probation Officer will ask about any changes to client’s contact information, any progress or barriers with complying with court-ordered conditions and will make any appropriate referrals as needed.

Monitored and records check only clients will meet with Probation after sentencing and will then just be monitored by Probation staff for completion of any court-ordered conditions. Any probation client is free and encouraged to contact the Probation Officer for questions or guidance regarding their case.

Probation utilizes several monitoring services to help reduce jail sentences and re-offending. These services can include SCRAM alcohol monitoring, hand-held alcohol monitoring devices, ignition interlock device, electronic home detention, GPS monitoring, community service, frequent contacts with Probation, or our court-sponsored Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) or Domestic Violence Moral Reconation Therapy (DV-MRT) groups.
