New Probation Department Building


This project will design and construct a new Probation Department office building to replace an ill-suited facility and serve the needs of a modern and growing County of San Luis Obispo Probation Department. The intent is to build a user friendly, accessible, safe, secure, and healthy environment for the Probation staff and the public.

Location/Conceptual Site Plan

The new building  will be sited on a portion of the twenty-one-acre County parcel located north of the Johnson Ave. and Bishop St. intersection in the City of San Luis Obispo.  The site is currently occupied by several existing Health Agency facilities which shall remain occupied during the construction. The new Probation Department building shall be located behind the existing facilities, on an undeveloped portion of the parcel and will take access from Bishop St.

Project Features and Benefits

  • Resolve significant inefficiencies of current, outdated main building and replace it with a new two-story 31,000+/- sf building that will be tailored to meet operational needs and will accommodate future departmental growth
  • Consolidate departmental functions at one location to allow shared operations and reduce intradepartmental travel
  • Upgrade department's physical infrastructure and systems to current state of the art
  • Improve convenience and access for public clients.
