Probation is a court-ordered term of community control supervision under specified conditions for a specific period of time. The probationer is required to abide by all conditions ordered by the court. Violation of these conditions may result in the probation being revoked, and the previous sentence being re-instated. The probationer is required to pay a fee of $150 for the cost of supervision, and may have additional conditions requiring payment of restitution, court costs and fines, community service and various types of treatment.
Those serving probation are usually required to visit a supervising officer at least once a month. The officer may also visit the offender at his or her home and/or place of employment, depending on the probationer’s risk profile.
The use of electronic monitoring as an enhancement to community control is applied only under a judicial order. The units are monitored on a 24-hour-a-day basis by private vendors who immediately report all violations to probation staff for further investigation.
Inactive probation is a form of non-contact supervision in which an offender that represents a low risk of harm to the community may be sentenced, or upon satisfactory completion of half the term of regular probation, be placed on non-reporting status until their probation expires. The probationer is required to pay a fee of $25 for reduced supervision. Periodic record checks are conducted to ensure the offender has not violated the law.
