Pretrial, Probation, and Parole Supervision Week Spotlight: PO Joseph Jennetten

As we celebrate Pretrial, Probation, and Parole Supervision Week, we want to take a moment to highlight the very important work our probation and parole professionals do here in Alaska.

Today we showcase PO Joseph Jennetten who is an Institutional Probation Officer at Anvil Mountain Correctional Center.

PO Jennetten grew up in Peoria, IL. He graduated with a Bachelor degree in Psychology from St. Ambrose University in Davenport, IA. He has lived in Nome, AK for 12 years and worked with DOC for 7 years.

He enjoys his position because he looks forward to meeting the different challenges presented to him as an institutional probation officer. He finds his job very rewarding when he motivates an inmate towards a positive direction or a certain goal.

Thank you PO Jennetten for making a difference! We appreciate you!
