Palmer Probation Office


The Palmer District Office, which has eleven probation officers, three criminal justice technicians, one office assistant, and two supervisors are responsible for the supervision of the Matanuska-Susitna Valley extending as far north as Cantwell, east to Mentasta and south to the communities of Valdez and Cordova. A majority of the area is accessible only by vehicle while Valdez, the home for the port of the TransAlaska Pipeline, is accessible by air or 250 road miles from Palmer. Cordova, a landlocked community, can only be accessed via air or by the ferry from Valdez or Whittier.
