Disclosure of Probation Records

November 18, 2009

The Wells County Probation Department for many years prepared summary criminal history reports for individuals and agencies upon request.  Since Indiana probation departments are not depositories of public records, the practice of preparing these summaries was simply a courtesy service to the community.  However, due to limited resources the Probation Department staff discontinued these record search summaries for individuals or non-judicial agencies.

Therefore, individuals and non-judicial agencies are directed to contact the Wells County Clerk about accessing criminal records located in Wells County.  You may also wish to search records at the following public court access link: Odyssey Case Management System

Internship Opportunity

The Wells County Probation Department is interested in working with college undergraduate and graduate students, especially if they are residents of Wells County.  This department works with both adult and juvenile jurisdictions, and we can provide to an ambitious student experience in the skills necessary for all most areas of an Indiana probation department.  Students of other disciplines (i.e., computer technology, business, foreign language, education, psychology, etc) will be considered if they can show how their skills may be used in the probation department environment. Work hours are negotiable, but interns may work up to 35 hours per week for 26 weeks.

Persons interested in internship opportunities may submit a cover letter with the application contained in the link below to the Chief Probation Officer at the Wells County Probation Department.
