INTENSIVE SUPERVISION PROGRAM 

Due to the low ratio of probationer to Intensive Supervision Program Officer (40:1), the officer has more opportunity to provide an increased level of surveillance and supervision of each probationer.  The ISP officer is trained and experienced in working with higher risk offenders.  The officer, utilizing the CJAD Case Classification System and Strategies for Case Supervision processes, determines risk/needs levels of the probationer, develops an individualized supervision plan, and arranges for the probationer to receive any needed special services to ensure public safety and promote responsible behavior.  The officer conducts a minimum of 4 face-to-face contacts per month with each probationer, with 2 of the contacts occurring in the field.  In addition to any conditions of probation placed on offenders in the Intensive Supervision program, a mandatory curfew is required (8:00 p.m.) and frequent drug/alcohol screenings are performed.

Length of stay on the program for a probationer will be twelve months.  At the end of twelve months, an individual is assessed to determine if Intensive Supervision can be terminated and the individual returned to a lower level of supervision. Successful completion is accomplished by the probationer complying with the terms and conditions of supervision, the Case Classification Supervision Plan, and the rules and regulations of the program.

This program assists the jurisdiction in reducing reliance on traditional incarceration and/or promotes the rehabilitation of offenders because all cases are diversions.  In other words, had it not been for this sentencing alternative, all ISP cases would have been revoked to TDCJ-ID.
