Ms. Tasha M. Hunt is the Deputy Director of Juvenile Probation Services for the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch Court Support Services Division. She started her career with the Judicial Branch nearly 25 years ago as a Juvenile Probation Officer. In 2009, she was promoted to Juvenile Probation Supervisor II and rose through the ranks to become the Deputy Director in 2015. Ms. Hunt is responsible for the management and operations of the eleven Juvenile Probation offices across Connecticut. She is committed to integrating evidence-based practices in probation offices to improve outcomes for court-involved youth. Ms. Hunt has played an integral role in Connecticut’s reform of the juvenile justice system, which has led to progressive change and the state acquiring recognition as a national model. In addition to managing field offices, Ms. Hunt serves as the Commissioner of the Connecticut Interstate Compact for Juveniles, overseeing the administration and management of the state’s federally-mandated supervision and transfer of juveniles on probation and parole who move across state lines or run away to another state. She also co-leads the Interstate Compact for Juveniles Ad Hoc Committee for Racial Justice. Ms. Hunt has served on several statewide committees and task forces. Currently, she represents the agency on the Juvenile Justice Policy and Oversight Incarceration Workgroup, Improving Outcomes for Youth Subcommittee, Governor’s Task Force on Justice for Abused Children, and local initiatives focused on youth homelessness and addressing racial and ethnic disparities in the juvenile justice system. Ms. Hunt earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sociology with a concentration in Criminology and Criminal Justice, and a Master of Science Degree in Education from Southern Connecticut State University. She is also an adjunct professor at the University of New Haven in the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences.
