Supervision Of Low-Risk Offenders (SOLO) Program
Many probationers make such significant progress on closely supervised probation that they now present a very low risk to the community regarding future offenses. Others enter the probation systems as very low risk individuals.
Probationers who represent a low risk for re-offense, and a low risk to public safety, are managed on this program, which involves a minimal face to face supervision. The participants report their progress through a telephone tracking system, and, while probation staff is available for referrals, monitoring, and communications with the court, the participants are expected — for the most part — to complete their court conditions independently.
Probationers who have been determined to be at medium risk for re-offense are served by the officers in the Supervision Unit. Supervision staff work in association with treatment providers, mental health, law enforcement, social services, and related agencies to intervene, guide, influence, and bring accountability to the conduct of probationers in our community. Officers meet regularly with probationers both in the office and the field to keep informed about their progress and intervene with strategies designed to manage risk factors and provide probationers the tools and social services required to improve their conduct and condition.

Probationers who have been determined to be at high risk for re-offense may be placed in the Intensive Services Unit (ISU). ISU staff provides intensive supervision to their cases, by working closely with both law enforcement and treatment providers, and seeing their probationers frequently both in the office and in the community.
