The safety of everyone is paramount during the outbreak of the coronavirus. Measures are being taken to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. As such, please do not report to the probation office or to a vendor for UA testing or counseling if you are experiencing symptoms of coronavirus. Persons under supervision are asked to contact their assigned officer or a duty officer immediately for further guidance if they or anyone in their home is sick. (Visit CDC.gov for a list of coronavirus symptoms).

We also want to protect you. If sick, your officer will not be coming to the probation offices or seeing you in the community, to reduce any exposure to you and your families.

Please communicate with your officer if you have any questions. Thank you for your cooperation.


The United States Probation Office is part of the United States Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The office covers the same geographical areas as the Court. Probation offices are located in or near the federal courthouses in Chicago and Rockford. See Map
