Six finalists interviewed for probation job

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Hamilton County officials wrapped up interviews Wednesday with the six finalists for the job of chief probation officer.

        A team of judges and court officials spent the first three days of this week interviewing the job candidates. It will choose a candidate by early next week and make recommendations to the county judges.

        The judges, who oversee the probation department, will make the final decision.

        The interviews are the latest step in a process that began last summer when former probation chief Michael Snowden resigned. Mr. Snowden quit after a dispute with his officers — and some judges — over changes he was making in the office.

        Months later, internal audits revealed that many officers were not doing court-ordered drug tests on convicted criminals.

        The candidates to replace Mr. Snowden include a justice official from Tennessee, a former federal probation officer and an assistant director from Hamilton County's River City drug rehabilitation facility.
