Notes from August 27, 2013 SOS Public Meeting

We had another great meeting last Tuesday!

Here are the notes:

·      With sadness, Josephine County loses yet another pillar of the Criminal Justice System with the departure of Josephine County Probation Officer Dan Schram; Dan addressed the group last night and explained his decision to leave; I have attached a copy of Dan’s resignation letter below:

It is with great excitement and sadness that I inform you that I will be leaving my position as  Parole/Probation Officer for Josephine County in about five weeks.  I was appointed to this position 11 years ago and have been in the Josephine County law enforcement family for nearly 20 years.  I am very proud of these years of service to this community and I feel I have given my very best. 

I have taken a position with Lincoln County Community Justice as a Parole/Probation Supervisor stationed out of Newport, Oregon.  I will be overseeing all field operations. 

This has been a very difficult decision.  Continue reading Notes from August 27, 2013 SOS Public Meeting
