Imperative IV: Provide for the Appropriate Supervision of Offenders in the Community

For offenders under community supervision, correctional probation officers work to assist and monitor each offender, as appropriate, in his/her compliance with court ordered sanctions. Sanctions include substance abuse or mental health treatment, victim restitution, prohibited contact with the victim, community service hours, anger management counseling, and other conditions of supervision. This imperative addresses issues relating to offender supervision and compliance with those sanctions.

Goal 1: Provide appropriate supervision to all offenders based on risk, supervision type and offender needs

Key Performance Indicators:

  1. Risk system validity
  2. Offender success rate in completing supervision
  3. Degree to which Individualized Supervision Plans (ISP) address offender needs

Strategic Objectives:

  1. By January 30, 2011, validate the effectiveness of the Department’s offender risk assessment system.
  2. On an annual basis, beginning in 2010, increase the number of offenders who successfully terminate supervision by 2 % from a baseline success rate of 45.7% as of July 2009.
  3. On an annual basis, beginning in 2010, increase the quality of Individualized Supervision Plans.
