Probation Officer Kilby Recognized with Award
On August 8, 2013, Cattaraugus County Probation Officer Tonya R. Kilby was presented the New York State Probation Officers Association 2013 Jeannie C. Farrell Award of Achievement (photo).
The Jeannie C. Farrell Award of Achievement is presented annually to a single Probation Officer in New York State who, among the many, goes above and beyond required duties and achieves results which deserve special recognition. Officer Kilby has taken on enormous responsibilities, and has been invaluable to her department in implementing cutting-edge reforms, including the supervision of sexual offenders, the use and implementation of cognitive evidence based interventions, group reporting, and in presenting these ideas to other departments across the state.
This award is a reflection upon Officer Kilby's extraordinary character and dedication, as well as a positive reflection upon the Cattaraugus County Probation Department. Officer Kilby continues the tradition of excellence established by this Department, garnering the Department's sixth state or national award since 1998.
On August 28, 2013, the Cattaraugus County Legislature officially recognized and commended Officer Kilby on winning this prestigious award (photo).
Officer Kilby has demonstrated herself to be a credit to Cattaraugus County, to her department and to her profession.
