We Hold These Truths
For Immediate Release: 05/01/2001
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

When 56 of our forefathers gathered to sign the Declaration of Independence 225 years ago they probably had no idea, nor could they imagine there would be over 4.3 million adult men and women on probation and parole and over 600,000 juvenile offenders under supervision in our communities today.

These officers are working daily to ensure that your rights of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness remain a reality.

Honor your community's probation, parole and community supervision officers during the week of July 15-21, 2001.
