Community Corrections

Probation

Probation refers to adults whom courts place on supervision in the community through a probation agency, generally in lieu of incarceration. In many instances, while on probation, individuals are required to fulfill certain conditions of their supervision (e.g., payment of fines, fees or court costs, participation in treatment programs) and adhere to specific rules of conduct while in the community. Failure to comply with any conditions can result in incarceration.
