Offender Admissions

2,334 probation officers across Florida supervise more than 119,000 active offenders placed on supervision by the court or Florida Parole Commission. Community supervision includes monitoring and enforcing the conditions imposed by the court or Florida Parole Commission. Conditions can include treatment, curfews, drug testing and/ or restitution. Probation officers evaluate offender progress, refer offenders to treatment and evaluate their desire to live within the law. Officers also refer offenders to community resources for assistance with job placement, education or other needs.
