The Yolo County Board of Supervisors this week appointed Marlon Yarber as interim chief probation officer, replacing the departing Marjorie Rist, who announced last month she would step down to pursue education and consulting opportunities.

Yarber has served as Yolo County’s assistant chief probation officer since June 2011. He will take on his new duties on Monday.

“I am excited about the prospect of serving as interim chief probation officer and representing Yolo County and the department in every way possible,” Yarber said in a news release.

“The Probation Department has gone through significant changes in recent years with implementation of evidence-based practices, and more recently, criminal justice realignment. I look forward to continuing these practices that support better outcomes and safer communities.”

Yarber holds a degree in psychology from UC Davis. In September 2011, he was awarded the Kenneth Kirkpatrick award for professional development by the California Probation, Parole and Correctional Association.

Prior to his tenure with Yolo County, Yarber served as the deputy director of the Corrections Planning and Programs Division at the Corrections Standards Authority and was responsible for the development, administration and evaluation of programs designed to improve the effectiveness of correctional systems and enhance public safety.

“We are pleased to have the continuity that Marlon Yarber will provide as interim chief probation officer as we grapple with AB 109 implementation which shifts the responsibility for incarcerating many low-risk inmates from the state to counties,” said Yolo County Supervisor Jim Provenza, who chairs the Board of Supervisors.

“Mr. Yarber has been a valuable contributor to our community corrections efforts and we look forward to the continued benefit of his expertise.”
