Specialized caseloads provide specialized supervision for high- risk offenders. This department has developed specific units to most effectively supervise these types of offenders.

The High Risk Offender caseload targets high risk/high needs felony offenders with histories of violent or assaultive offenses. Appropriate offenders are directed into Cognitive classes, job training, GED testing and programming to aid them in redirecting their behavior. Probation Officers work in close conjunction with law enforcement authorities to monitor offender activities in the community and to take immediate action when violations occur.

The Youthful Offender caseload targets high risk/high needs youthful felony offenders who have a limited criminal history and/or have limited or no access to resources. The caseload provides maximum supervision, intervention, and resource linkage to offenders seventeen to twenty-one (17-21) years of age, with an emphasis on assisting young adults to complete education goals and develop employment and pro-social skills.

The Substance Abuse caseload targets high-risk/needs felony offenders who abuse alcohol or drugs. These caseloads may also include offenders who are participating in a Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facility aftercare program. The goal of these caseloads is to reduce recidivism and address addiction by providing comprehensive assessment, treatment/counseling, and intensive rehabilitation supervision. An emphasis on relapse prevention through appropriate case management is a unit priority.

A State Jail caseload serves State Jail felons sentenced to serve time as a sanction for probation non-compliance or offenders who are directly sentenced to serve State Jail time “up front” as a condition of probation. While housed at the State Jail, offenders may participate in programming such as GED classes, Life Skills, and 12 Step Meetings. The Probation Officer meets with the offender while they are in custody to review their conditions of community supervision and to set a reporting date to meet their supervising PO. This Officer evaluates the offender’s needs and determines if intensive supervision on a specialized caseload is needed, or if the offender is appropriate for supervision on a field caseload.

Mental Health caseloads target high-risk/high-need felony offenders who have been diagnosed with a mental illness. Offenders with mental impairments generally present a variety of special needs and are frequently at higher risk to harm themselves and/or the community. Probation Officers are trained specifically to supervise this type of offender. This caseload affords Officers the ability to closely monitor compliance as well as maintain contact with mental health professionals involved in the treatment of these offenders.

Offenders on these caseloads demonstrate a wide variety of special needs. The term “Developmentally Disabled” refers to offenders diagnosed with Borderline Intellectual Functioning and Learning Disabilities. “Degenerative Disorders” refers to offenders who suffer from dementia caused by injuries, medical disorders, and/or substance/inhalant abuse.

The Sex Offender Caseload serves to provide maximum supervision, intervention, and referral to therapy for offenders who are on community supervision for a sexually related offense, which meets the criteria for inclusion in the State Sex Offender Registration Program. This Specialized Caseload is designed to provide close supervision to sex offenders by monitoring their therapeutic treatment and ensuring that they are in compliance with their “no contact”, residence and registration requirements.
