Probation department honors staff members

The South Lake Tahoe branch office of the El Dorado County Probation Department recently honored two staff members with the Probation Office of the Year and the Probation Employee of the Year awards for 2000. The presentation took place during the annual employee awards luncheon. Joe Warchol, chief probation officer, was present at the event to congratulate the award recipients.

Each year the two awards are presented to staff members who have done an outstanding job for the probation department and the community. The award recipients are selected by a vote of their peers at the South Lake Tahoe Probation Branch Office.

This year the Probation Officer of the Year award was presented to Shannon Davis, who has been employed as a deputy probation officer at South Lake Tahoe since November 1999. She initially served as the department’s Juvenile Intake and Teen Court officer. She currently is assigned to the Transitional Reporting and Education Center, a day reporting center in South Lake Tahoe Tahoe provided through the collaborative efforts of the Probation Department, County Office of Education and Tahoe Youth and Family Services. Davis has quickly earned the respect of her peers and the community as exemplified by her receipt of the award so early in her career.

The Probation Employee of the Year award was presented to Robbie Bartoni. She serves as a legal office assistant II and has worked in the South Lake Tahoe Branch since March 1994. Bartoni is assigned as the office receptionist. She also prepares and processes reports and legal filings and assists with case file management and the gathering and reporting of department and state statistical information. She often volunteers to assist in setting up special events for the department. Bartoni previously received the Probation Employee of the Year award in 1995.
