Description

In the wake of the disclosures in the Report of Independent Counsel Paul F. Ware, the Justices of the Supreme Judicial Court appointed a Task Force to Review Hiring and Promotion Practices in the Judicial Branch (Task Force) under the leadership of Scott Harshbarger to "make recommendations designed to ensure a fair system with transparent procedures in which the qualifications of an applicant are the sole criterion in hiring and promotion" in the Probation Department and throughout the Judicial Branch. Shortly thereafter, the Governor, Senate President, and House Speaker established a Probation Reform Working Group (Working Group) comprised of Legislative and Executive Branch officials to study ways to reform the Probation Department and provide recommendations for change.
