Union Vicinage Trial Court Administrator Elizabeth Domingo has been named assistant director for probation services, today announced Judge Glenn A. Grant, acting administrative director of the courts. Domingo succeeds Kevin M. Brown, who was recently named acting executive director of the Juvenile Justice Commission. The appointment is effective May 1.
“Liz has excelled in her current role as trial court administrator of the Union Vicinage,” said Judge Grant. “She has overseen the operations of one of our busiest courthouses with wisdom and patience and she will provide exceptional leadership to our probation services division.”
As assistant director, Domingo will promote the welfare of children, families and communities in New Jersey by leading the approximately 1,600-member division in enforcing orders of the courts regarding the supervision and monitoring of adults and juvenile offenders sentenced to terms of probation or admitted to an intensive supervision program; the payment of fines and restitution by adult offenders; and the payment of child support by non-custodial parents.
Domingo also will work with the Conference of Vicinage Chief Probation Officers to develop and implement policies and procedures to improve and enhance the Judiciary’s delivery of probation services throughout New Jersey. She will work closely with managers in other divisions, including the family, criminal and finance divisions of the Judiciary, the state Department of Children and Families, and other agencies.
“As a former probation officer, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the probation division at a very exciting time,” said Domingo. “There have been many strides forward in recent years in technology, in our approach to rehabilitation, and in our case management techniques. I am eager to work with our terrific probation officers and managers to keep these developments moving forward.”
Domingo joined the Judiciary in 1985 as a probation officer in Hudson County. She later served as an assistant jury manager, then jury manager, before being named assistant civil division manager. She moved to the Morris/Sussex Vicinage in 1997, where she served as assistant trial court administrator. In 2003, Domingo moved to the Union Vicinage as the Judiciary’s first Hispanic trial court administrator.
Domingo is an active member of the New Jersey Council on Juvenile Justice System Improvement, co-chair of the state’s Subcommittee on Racial Disparities and Disproportionate Minority Contact in the Juvenile Justice System, and co-chair of the local county council in Union Vicinage for Juvenile Justice System Improvement. She is the president of the Mid-Atlantic Association for Court Management.
Domingo has a bachelor’s degree from Seton Hall University and a law degree from Seton Hall School of Law. She also holds certificates in court administration and public management. She has completed the Court Executive Development Program of the National Center for State Courts’ Institute for Court Management and is certified as a fellow.
She lives in North Brunswick with her husband, Edward, and their two children.
