Schuyler County Probation is the designated collection agency for any restitution ordered to be collected through any of the criminal courts in Schuyler County. When the Probation Department receives a restitution order from a court, our account clerk opens a collection case and notifies the defendant of the collection order and of the parameters of how they can pay the money to the probation office. When a payment is received, the amount is recorded in the file, and then the restitution is redistributed by the Probation Department to the victim that incurred the damages. By law, the probation office is entitled to collect a surcharge from the defendant for the services in collecting and distributing these restitution amounts. The Schuyler County Probation Department also collects DWI fees that range from $10-$30 a month for all DWI probation supervision cases. If ordered by a court, probation will also collect the court surcharge that a court is entitled to, as well as court fines that are often mandated in sentencing.
There are several ways that a person can make a payment to Probation for restitution or fees owed. Our Department accepts cash or money orders in the office. We do not accept personal checks. A person can also make a credit card payment by phone or online by going through Government Payment Services.
