This study provides an overview of how the supervision of a
class of felony probationers operates in a jurisdiction, and gives a
baseline against which the impact of changes to probationary
supervision can be measured. The objectives of this study were to
describe the demographic characteristics of probationers, the nature
and level of supervision that probationers receive, the extent and
types of specified conditions imposed on probationers, the degree of
probationer compliance with these specified conditions, the extent to
which probationers are arrested and/or subjected to probationary
disciplinary hearings while under supervision, and the exit status of
probationers from community supervision.
