About 29% of Offenders Admitted to Community Supervision in FY 1999-00 Were Considered Youthful Offenders (Under 24)

Offenders on community supervision are generally considered Youthful Offenders (YOs) if they are under the age of 24. Youthful Offenders are often assigned to Correctional Probation Senior Officers (CPSOs) because supervising YOs is generally more difficult than supervising older offenders and requires more experience on the part of CPSOs to address the broader range of problems that YOs present. For example, YOs are often lacking in job skill and have more education and substance abuse problems than other offenders, requiring more contact by CPSOs with school officials, counselors, and family members than the average offender. About 29% of those admitted to community supervision in FY 1999-00 were under the age of 24.
