Community Corrections is responsible for the supervision of almost 138,000 offenders under community supervision annually. Comprehensive community supervision comprises a multitude of human resources, programs, automation and communication systems, and specialized supervision approaches. The following is a brief overview of the programs and operations that make up this area of the Florida Department of Corrections.
The supervision admission population consists of all offenders beginning supervision through specific court placement or by other assignment to a community-based program as a condition of prison release. For budget information related to community supervision, please see the Budget.
For any specified date, the community supervision status population consists of all offenders actively under supervision and those on supervision caseloads but temporarily unavailable for direct supervision because of known and designated reasons, such as hospitalization, incarceration, etc.
Statistics on the status population are those for June 30, the final day of the fiscal year.
The community supervision release population consists of all offenders permanently removed from a specific term of supervision in the Florida Department of Corrections due to satisfaction of the sentence, return to another state, death, or revocation.
