The District includes Crittenden, Union, Henderson, Ohio, Hancock, Muhlenberg, Webster, Daviess and McLean counties.
“Jarrod Dortch has the integrity and fortitude required to perform the duties of District Supervisor,” said VanHoose. “His straightforward demeanor and matter of fact reasoning will provide him with a strong foundation for success: job success we have already seen demonstrated through his work as a Probation & Parole Officer and Assistant District Supervisor. I look forward to working with Jarrod as we continue to move the Division forward.”
Dortch is a 15-year veteran of the Department of Corrections who has dedicated his career to serving the Division of Probation & Parole. He began his career at the Owensboro Probation & Parole Office in August of 1994. He supervised a Daviess County caseload and conducted court investigations for Daviess Circuit Court.
In January of 2007 Dortch was promoted to Assistant District Supervisor in the 13th District. He is a 2007 graduate of the Commissioner's Executive Leadership Program.
Dortch is a graduate of Western Kentucky University. He and his wife Stacy live in Owensboro with their two “Death Row” dogs, Poppy and Spyder. The animals were adopted from the program at the Green River Correctional Complex called “Death Row Dogs” that takes dogs from a local animal shelter and pairs them with inmate trainers so the dogs will become more adoptable and won’t be euthanized.
