Probation

What to Expect

When sentenced to probation clients will have an intake scheduled with a CJS case manager who will review court-ordered requirements as well as general expectations during supervision. Supervision requirements include check-ins with the assigned case manager based on supervision level. Requirements may also include a substance use assessment, mental health assessment, urinalysis testing, etc.

All probation clients are given the LSCMI which identifies need areas. During the course of probation supervision, clients work with their case manager to create a case plan to address the need areas and help them complete supervision successfully.
