The Travis County Community Supervision and Corrections Department (CSCD) in Austin, Texas (the county adult probation department) teamed up in late 2005 with the JFA Institute and later the Justice Center of the Council of State Governments in an effort to reengineer the operations of the department to support more effective supervision strategies. The goal was to strengthen probation by using an evidence-based practices (EBP) model. This realignment strategy is called the Travis Community Impact Supervision (TCIS).

The department has served as an "incubator" site to develop, test and document organization-wide change directed at improving assessment, supervision, sanctioning, personnel training and quality control policies. The reports listed document the strategies and progress of Travis County as an "incubator" site for re-engineering probation.
