Monthly Status Report December 2004
Community Supervision Population Summary

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, 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. These represent the actual types of supervision imposed by the court or the Parole Commission. As of December 31, 2004:

  • 146,692 offenders on Active or Active-Suspense Community Supervision
    • 141,345 serving an original sentence
    • 5,330 on Post-Prison Release
    • 17 on other types of supervision
  • 720 offenders on electronic monitoring
    • 192 Radio Frequency
    • 505 Active Global Positioning
    • 23 Passive Global Positioning
  • Region II has the highest active supervised population with 43,173 offenders
  • The average Probation sentence is 3.9 years (includes life sentences)

Note: As of August 29, 2003, Circuit 7 relocated to Region II and Circuit 19 relocated to Region IV. Regional comparisons to prior reports would be inaccurate. As of May 20, 2004 the number of regions was reduced from 4 to 3. Reports for July 2004 forward reflect those regions.
