Recently, a few high-profile cases involving sentencing recommendations from probation officers within the Collier County Probation Department have brought some bad press to the department. According to the public's perception via the media, the department is not as tough on sentencing sanctions as it could be. In the event that the current chief probation officer, John Brown, is on annual leave, Joan Casey will need to address the publics and media's concern regarding the case of a young man convicted of murder after years of physical and mental abuse. The media is threatening to reveal less than favorable press of the probation department and the decision in relation to intermediate sanctions for the young man involved.

As Joan Casey is essentially in charge although Chief Brown is on leave, she must use her discretion, along with the probation department's policy concerning media relations. To reinforce her probation officer's findings in regard to this case will be a pivotal point in public relations with the community and the media. Justification of the intermediate sanctions must be clear and concise if Joan Casey is to retain the respect of the community, media members, and the probation department. How she resolves this matter will be essential to the trust, communication, and credibility of not only herself, but also the entire probation department for Collier County.
