Probation Department

Working with Meskwaki Probation has allowed me to not only become a better person but has helped me make better choices in my own every day life.”

~ Probationer


The Meskwaki Probation Department provides guidance to Tribal Court probationers by encouraging them to be successful community members.  Probationers are provided access to a variety of resources and services that not only address their offenses, but also promote healthy lifestyles and helps reconnect them with the community.

We believe that offenders who maintain and/or build strong family relationships are less likely to re-offend.  We believe that without targeted intervention, there is a higher risk that previous patterns of behaviors are likely to be repeated and/or passed on to the next generation.  The Probation Department works as a resource to offenders by targeting educational and cultural opportunities to reduce the chances of re-offending by promoting lifelong learning, employment, counseling, mentoring, and social inclusion practices.
