Community Supervision

Community supervision usually encompasses probation and parole and is overseen by state and local governments.

People serving on community supervision are subject to any number of conditions imposed by the state. To improve decision-making, data efforts may focus on felony and misdemeanor placements to parole and probation, caseload management, reasons for revocation, and staffing allocations for managing people on supervision.
