Monthly Status Report April 2008
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, hospitalized, 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 April 30, 2008:

  • 157,177 offenders on Active or Active-Suspense Community Supervision
    • 152,119 serving an original sentence
    • 5,041 on Post-Prison Release
    • 17 on other types of supervision
    • 1 Unknown supervision type
  • 1,905 offenders on electronic monitoring
    • 152 Radio Frequency
    • 1,753 Active Global Positioning
      • 771 Global Positioning under Jessica Lunsford Act
      • 982 Other Global Positioning
  • Region II has the highest active supervised population with 32,770 offenders
  • The average Probation sentence is 3.7 years (includes life sentences)

Note: As of July 21, 2006, the number of regions was changed from 3 to 4. Reports for July 2006 forward reflect those regions. Regional comparisons to prior reports would be inaccurate. Circuits 11, 15, 16 and 17 make up the new region 4. Circuit 5 moved from region 1 to 2 and circuit 19 moved from 3 to 2. Circuits 6, 12, and 13 have been moved from region 2 to 3.
