|Offender Accountability Program|
Probation and Parole officers protect the public safety by helping offenders learn to live within the law. They supervise offenders' activities in the community and ensure their compliance with court orders and sanctions.
Probation is a period of court-ordered community supervision of an offender imposed as an alternative to imprisonment.
Post Release Supervision and Parole are forms of supervision in the community after completing a prison sentence.
