HIGH/MEDIUM REDUCTION CASELOAD

High/Medium Reduction Caseload is incorporated into the progressive sanctions model of the Community Supervision and Corrections Department of Taylor, Callahan and Coleman Counties.  This program assists the jurisdiction in reducing reliance on traditional incarceration and/or promotes the rehabilitation of offenders.  High/Medium Risk Offenders are supervised for eighteen months on the caseload with an early release from the program at twelve months, for compliant offenders, as an incentive.   

Due to the low ratio of offender to officer (60:1), the officer has more opportunity to provide an increased level of surveillance and supervision of each offender.  The 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 offender to receive needed services to ensure public safety, address criminogenic needs and promote responsible behavior.  High/Medium Reduction Caseload Supervision Officers will conduct three (3) face-to-face contacts with the offender each month.  The offender will report to the Supervision Officer at least once a month at the Community Supervision and Corrections Department.  The Supervision Officer will conduct a face-to-face field visit with the offender at least once a month.  The third face-to-face contact with the offender can either be at the Community Supervision and Corrections Department or in the field.  One collateral contact per month will be made with the offender’s family members or significant others and one collateral contact per month will be made with the treatment provider, until the program has been successfully completed, if the offender is required to attend a specific program.
