The upcoming charts detail the following supervision categories, which are based on budget allocations provided by the Legislature. These categories are mutually exclusive and have been ranked in the order listed below:
These supervision groupings reflect the allocation of officers necessary to meet the needs of specialized caseloads. For example, the ratio of officer to offenders needs to be lower for specialized caseloads of community control and sex offenders than it does for probation or administrative cases.
However, while these groupings provide an accurate picture of the types of offenders that are on supervision, the numbers in this chart may not match those published in the previous section of this report. For example, Table 9: Budget Entity by Region/Circuit (Active Offenders) lists the number of probationers on supervision as 79,168. The previous section lists this number as 81,667 (probation and administrative probation) which is the correct number of offenders on this type of supervision. However, of the 81,667 probationers, 2,499 are sex offenders. Therefore, in this section, these offenders appear in this category rather than "Probation."
*Includes those designated as current and prior PSIA offenders.
Note: There are 404 post-prison sex offenders listed in the Sex Offender Budget Entity (300 active, 104 active-suspense) and 546 sex offenders in the Community Control Budget Entity (369 active, 177 active-suspense).
