Jeff Goldman has been selected as Nevada County’s new Chief Probation Officer. “I’m excited about the future of the department as we are currently in a great position with fantastic staff to continue the great work that we are known for,” he said about stepping into his new role.
Jeff has worked for Nevada County since January 2015. He began his probation career with Placer County Probation in early 2001 working at the Juvenile Detention Center. Late in 2002, he left for a position with the Sacramento Police Department. Eventually, he realized he missed the work of a probation officer and in early 2004 returned to a career as a probation officer with Yolo County. He rose through the ranks within Yolo and was eventually promoted to the rank of Program Manager. His assignments spanned both the adult and juvenile systems. He is active in professional organizations including being a Past President of the California Probation, Parole, and Corrections Association (CPPCA).
Jeff attended undergraduate school at The City University of New York, John Jay College and graduate school at California State University, Sacramento. He then went on to earn a master’s degree in Public Affairs (MPA) from the Truman School of Public Affairs at the University of Missouri, Columbia. He lives in Nevada County with his family and is active in the community. You have probably seen him riding his bicycle to Nevada County's Probation Office in Nevada City.
