Offender Admissions

2,334 probation officers across Florida supervise more than 152,000 active and active-suspense 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 refer offenders to community resources for assistance with job placement, education, or other needs.
