District Court Probation (DCP) provides adult probation services for offenders charged with misdemeanors in the Whatcom County District Court and some Municipal Courts that contract with Whatcom County, currently the cities of Bellingham, Lynden, Everson, and Sumas.
We provide pre-sentence and post-sentence investigations to the court with sentence recommendations. We supervise probation conditions that hold offenders accountable and impact their behavior in the community. Conditions include treatment for alcohol and drug abuse, domestic violence, mental health, sexual deviancy and restitution to victims.
In the future, our website will help you answer commonly asked questions, provide maps and various forms.
