Domestic Violence Probation Officer
Jeanne Mullane has been a dedicated professional working in the victim advocacy/criminal justice field for over two decades. Her career began as a Victim Advocate providing crisis intervention and advocacy services to victims of violent crime, specializing in domestic and sexual violence. She has provided advocacy, training, and education services to the military community as well as provided counseling and crisis intervention to residents in a domestic violence shelter. The knowledge and experience gained through working with victim/survivors strengthened her desire to better understand domestic violence from the offender’s perspective. Today, Ms. Mullane serves the domestic violence offender community working with individuals placed on supervised probation with the Loudoun County Department of Community Corrections. Outside of working with male offenders, she provides specialized expertise related to female domestic violence offenders and supervises all respective female offenders on probation for domestic violence related crimes in Loudoun County. This has afforded her the opportunity to connect with a unique population of domestic violence victim/survivors who have gone largely unnoticed and underserved. It is in this area that she is working to bring lessons learned from years of victim/survivor advocacy to the female offender community. Throughout the course of her career, Ms. Mullane has provided training and presentations to audiences spanning victim advocates, probation officers, police officers, military officials, attorneys and judges, clergy, and various allied professionals. She has trained in the areas of both the victim advocate and the probation officer in the criminal justice system, improving law enforcement’s response to domestic violence, identifying domestic violence in the workplace, and military focused DV and sexual assault prevention and education.
