Griffin Brown Promoted to Assistant Supervisor in Probation and Parole District 17
Division of Probation and Parole Director Roberto Rodriquez today announced the promotion of Griffin Brown to assistant supervisor of District 17 in Louisville. His promotion was effective Oct. 16.
“I believe that Officer Brown will be an excellent addition to District 17,” said Rodriguez. “He is experienced, committed and knowledgeable. He gets the job done and after a number of years as a probation and parole officer, he continues to have the enthusiasm to be the best at what he does.”
Brown began his career working as a community supervision and adult probation officer for the Monroe County Probation Department in Bloomington, Indiana. In 2003, he transferred to the Kentucky Department of Corrections as a probation and parole officer in District 18. In 2007 Brown transferred to District 16 and served as a field training officer. Brown partnered with Catholic Charities to create the “Building a Tomorrow” program and was the District 16 officer for the innovative Kentucky SMART (Supervision, Monitoring, Accountability, Responsibility and Treatment) probation program since its inception. He has also served as the violent crime/major theft liaison to the Louisville Metro Police Department, disseminating information leading to the identification of dozens of wanted criminals.
Griffin is a 1999 graduate of Eastern Kentucky University with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice administration. He also received the 2006 “Officer of the Year” award for his district.
