A phone scam is targeting people in custody and their families. Callers pretend to be employees of the U.S. Probation Office, U.S. Parole Commission, and Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). Their goal is to obtain money and personal information. Callers have promised to get individuals out of BOP custody, end supervised release, and approve relocation requests. U.S. probation officers and staff from other federal agencies do not ask for money in exchange for services. Please report these calls to the Federal Trade Commission online or by phone at 1 (877) 382-4357 (9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.).

Probation & Pretrial Information


It is our mission at the United States Probation and Pretrial Services Office for the Western District of Missouri to facilitate the administration of justice, make our communities safer, and bring about long-term positive change in the individuals under supervision. We accomplish this by:

  • providing the Court with thorough, accurate, and objective information upon which to base bond and sentencing decisions;
  • protecting our community by monitoring defendants and offenders and enforcing court orders; and
  • addressing the needs of defendants and offenders through continuity of services and effective use of community resources.

Because we are committed to our mission, we are confident our vision will be fulfilled to exemplify the highest ideals and standards in community corrections.
