Ashley Akins-Callaway

Ashley Akins has been with the Yolo County Probation Department since August 2008, her current assignment is as a Juvenile Services Aide in the Yolo County Juvenile Detention Facility. In her position as a Juvenile Services Aide Ashley is typically assigned to Central Control where she is the heart of the facility making sure that everything is running smoothly, which is no easy task!  Some of her typical duties are ensuring visitors are attended to, clearing alarms, monitoring security cameras and documenting all movement in the facility and recognizing potential incidents within the pods and alerting staff.  The demands and priorities for this position are constantly changing and Ashley consistently handles her position with positivity and professionalism.  While she may be dealing with pressures from constantly changing priorities, whenever you call Central Control for anything she always maintains her composure.  Every time I have interacted with Ashley I am impressed with her positivity, humor, and professional demeanor.  She is also someone who is always willing to go above and beyond by taking on additional tasks such as training new staff and providing feedback to staff based on what she observes on the monitors.  She is an absolute pleasure to work with and an essential part of the Yolo County Probation Team, she is a true example of a difference maker!
