Report Logo: Supervised Population Monthly Status Report


This Monthly Status Report provides a brief profile of Florida's community supervision population. The supervision population consists of all offenders on supervision through specific court placement or other assignment to a community-based program as a condition of prison release. The overall population on the last day of the month is broken down into status types:

  • Active-offender is currently supervised in the community per conditions of supervision
  • Active-Suspense-offender is unavailable for direct supervision, may be incarcerated, in drug treatment, hospital, etc., during supervision term, but is still monitored by a probation officer
  • Out of State-Florida-offender transfers supervision to another state, the Department of Corrections continues to monitor compliance of conditions
  • Absconder-offender absconds from supervision, whereabouts are unknown and court issues a warrant for violation

Supervision types are divided into Original Sentence, Post Prison Release and Other Supervision Types. As of August 31, 2000:

  • 149,895 offenders on Active or Active-Suspense Community Supervision
