New Chief P.O. For Humboldt
Not exactly breaking news but Doug Rasines has been appointed the new Chief Probation Officer for Humboldt. I knew and worked for him when he was Superintendant of Juvenile Hall, as well as his predecessor, Bill Burke, who moved to take the same position for Marin County.
What I'd like to know is what happened to their predecessor, Dave Lehman? He was Chief P.O. for quite a few years and seemed to just disappear. Don't recall seeing anything in the paper about him leaving. Last I heard, he'd been appointed to the State Parole Board, or some such, but I thought that was just something he did on the side. Maybe I got that wrong and it was some permanent job change? You'd think if he had moved on there'd had been a lot of fanfare with the county pols and media (unless he left under less than favorable circumstances?).
