Disclosure of Probation Records

NOTICE

November 18, 2009

  

The Wells County Probation Department has for many years prepared summary criminal history reports for individuals and agencies upon request.  Since Indiana probation departments are not depositories of public records, the practice of preparing these summaries was simply a courtesy service to the community.
