Offenders on community supervision are generally considered Youthful Offenders (YO's) if they are under the age of 24. Youthful Offenders are often assigned to Correctional Probation Senior Officers (CPSO's) because supervising YO's is generally more difficult than supervising older offenders and requires more experience on the part of CPSO's to address the broader range of problems that YO's present. For example, YO's are often lacking in job skills and have more education and substance abuse problems than other offenders, requiring more contact by CPSO's with school officials, counselors, and family members than the average offender. Less than one-third of those admitted to community supervision in FY 2003-04 were under the age of 24.

Admissions of Offenders Under Age 24
FY 1998-99 to FY 2003-04
Admissions of Offenders Under Age 24 -  FY 1998/99 = 28,202 with increase to FY 01/02 = 32,553 and decrease to FY 02/03 = 28,911 and increase to FY 03/04 = 32,587
