Just Released

It is important that all persons released from custody or the court, and referred to the Probation Department for supervision understand that they will need to report to a probation area office for intake and orientation instructions within 48 hours. The intake process for both Felony Probation supervision, Post-Release Community Supervision, and Mandatory Sentences were established to provide the supervised person with clear instructions for the requirement of their supervision, assist with referrals for treatment and services, and to clarify and answer any questions that might arise concerning supervision. The goal of the intake processes is to assess the supervised person and circumstances of their case to provide the appropriate level of supervision required to provide for the safety of the community while protecting and ensuring the right so victims, and assisting the supervised person in making a successful re-entry into the community.
