Community Supervision/Admissions

About 30% of Offenders Admitted to Community Supervision in FY 2000-01 Were Considered Youthful Offenders (Under 24)

Offenders on community supervision are generally considered Youthful Offenders (YOs) if they are under the age of 24. Youthful Offenders are often assigned to Correctional Probation Senior Officers (CPSOs) because supervising YOs is generally more difficult than supervising older offenders and requires more experience on the part of CPSOs to address the broader range of problems that YOs present. For example, YOs are often lacking in job skills and have more education and substance abuse problems than other offenders, requiring more contact by CPSOs with school officials, counselors, and family members than the average offender. About 30% of those admitted to community supervision in FY 2000-01 were under the age of 24.
