Adult Probation


DFO focuses on providing evidence based practices and programming to our clients. In accordance with that focus, our agents are specially trained depending on their assigned unit.


Low Level Supervision
Telephone Reporting System (TRS) is an automated telephone/web based monitoring system designed to increase accountability for lower risk clients. Further details are available about the Telephone Reporting System.

Intake Unit
The intake unit completes risk/need assessments and completes pre-sentence investigations on adult clients to determine appropriate level of supervision and services to be provided.

Female Unit
DFO has a team of agents specifically assigned to supervising women who are assessed as high risk. These agents are very active with gender-specific programming for their clients. There is also a specialized caseload of domestic violence team who manages a caseload of violent female clients.

Drug and Property Unit
The Alcohol/Other Drug/Property team supervised all clients assessed as high risk/ high needs for offenses ranging from DWI and all drug-related crimes to theft, damage to property, non-residential burglary, etc. This team is particularly active with the Crossroads/Odyssey Programs, which is a drug and alcohol abuse treatment program offered by corrections.

Domestic Violence Unit
Our domestic violence team supervises all male and female clients on probation for domestic violence related offenses. Team members co-facilitate a weekly treatment group.

Please refer to the Client Resources page for more detail regarding the programming available to these specific client populations.

Sex Offender Supervision
Any client who has committed a sex offense is supervised by this team of specially trained agents. These clients are referred to participate in sex offense specific treatment. An expectation of treatment is for clients to participate in polygraph examinations. Agents work with clients in their office and also conduct random field visits to clients homes.

Intensive Supervised Release (ISR)
Clients found to be very high risk leaving prison are supervised by this unit. Clients are seen as many as 4 times per week with at least half of those visits occurring between 5 PM and 8 AM, per statute and Department Of Corrections policy. As with other units, agents refer clients to a variety of community based programs to assist in client success. Incorporating  programming into ISR helps make this program more successful.
