Williamson County Community Supervision and Corrections Department (Adult Probation) Director Jameson Pennington was elected to serve on the Probation Advisory Council of Texas. 

 “I’m honored to be elected to this position and look forward to serving our region. Region 3 is the fastest growing region in the state, representing 28 Central Texas counties. As the largest criminal justice component in Texas corrections, adult probation departments serve over 360,000 justice involved adults and employ more than 6,600 staff members statewide. I’m blessed to be in a position to work closely with state agencies and organizations to ensure that Williamson County CSCD is having the greatest possible positive impact on public safety in our community,” said Mr. Pennington. “Ensuring the CSCD is taking every opportunity to provide exceptional supervision services in our Williamson County communities is our highest priority.”   

The Probation Advisory Council (PAC) of Texas consists of 11 community supervision and corrections department chiefs. The PAC is designed to work closely with the regional supervision departments as well as the Judicial Advisory Council (JAC) to positively impact community supervision services in Texas. The Judicial Advisory Council advises the director of the Community Justice Assistance Division and the Texas Board of Criminal Justice on matters of interest to the judiciary. Six of the 12 members are appointed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Texas. The remaining six are appointed by the presiding Judge of the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. 

 Mr. Pennington began his career in public service in 2004 working for various law enforcement agencies. In 2007, Pennington began his career with community corrections seeking opportunities to assist in breaking the cycles of individual criminal behavior. He has been the director of CSCD in Williamson County since 2020.
