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. About 36.5% of all offenders on pretrial intervention community supervision on June 30, 2004 were Youthful Offenders, significantly more than any of the other three original sentence categories.
