Community Supervision and Probation: Both Community Supervision and Probation refer to the same process.

Supervision Officers: Your supervision officer can be very helpful to you.  He/she can answer any questions you have about your probation; schedule classes, programs and set up appointments you need to fulfill your probation obligations; provide community-based referrals such as drug/alcohol counseling, employment counseling and literacy/GED preparation that will help you prepare for a positive life.  Your officer will supervise you as directed by the Court and will inform the Court as to how you are abiding by the rules. Your officer will conduct visits to your home or work as well as in the probation office.

Other Information: You must be on time for each office visit.

Ask your supervising officer each month what paperwork you need to bring when you report for you next visit.  Reporting to your officer is very important. 

Do not bring children with you to your office visit.  Some office visits can take up to two hours to complete.  Sex offenders will be reporting to the same facility that you are.

If your offense was a Misdemeanor or deferred adjudication Felony, you may still vote if you are a registered voter.

If your offense was a non-theft Misdemeanor you may still serve on a jury if called.
