ATLANTA, July 29, 2015 --

The Evidence Based Professionals Society and Joyfields Institute for Professional Development jointly announced today that the San Mateo County Probation Departmenttoday has achieved the provisional certification requirements for becoming an Evidence Based Organization. To earn this distinction, the agency underwent months of in-depth self-assessment, external evaluation and implementation of evidence based approaches to enhance delivery of services and care to its clients and staff.

Certified Evidence Based Organizations (CEBO) are recognized for abilities and accomplishments they demonstrate in the area of evidence based policies, programs, and practices. The certification process examines five areas at these organizations;

  • Knowledge and use of evidence based policies, programs, and practices
  • Demonstrating of effective leadership
  • Organizational culture and assessment
  • Strategic planning, performance measurement, and program evaluation
  • Building capacity and sustainability

Sobem Nwoko, President, Joyfields Institute and Founder of the EBP Society said, “The very idea of assessing oneself although exciting can be daunting for the individual, let alone a large and very visible organization.  We congratulate the department on this milestone as they demonstrate a commitment to delivering best-in-class services and support staff and customers expect and should receive".

In a statement Chief John Keene said, "I would like to extend my most sincere gratitude to the Joyfields Institute. President Sobem Nwoko and Dr. David Myers are acknowledged leaders in the world of Evidence Based approaches. We here at the San Mateo County Probation Department are confident that, with President Nwoko and Dr. Myers' assistance, we are well on the road to becoming an industry leader in Community Corrections."

Mr. Nwoko further stated, ‘...employees of any organization and their customers seeking supports and services, voluntarily or otherwise, can expect practices that are best in class and proven.  The evidence tells us the team at San Mateo County Probation Department is such an organization and the county should be proud to have such an organization serving its citizens.”

EBP Society certification programs provide an outstanding opportunity for organizations and their staff to enhance their evidence based approaches, culture and proficiencies - all in a continuing effort to provide exceptional service to staff and clients”
