Confinement in Response to Violation (CRV)

Confinement in Response to Violation (CRV) centers house and provide intensive behavior modification programs for those who have committed technical violations of probation.  CRV centers incarcerate violators for 90-day periods in response to violations of probation, parole or post-release supervision as provided by the Justice Reinvestment Act of 2011. The CRV centers utilize dormitory style housing similar to a minimum-security prison and offer intensive programming designed to modify behavior of probation violators. Probation officers and custody staff work closely with offenders as they progress through treatment and programming including cognitive behavioral therapy, substance abuse interventions, employment readiness and life skills training.  

Under the Justice Reinvestment Act, violations of probation that involve committing new crimes or absconding can still result in revocation of probation, activation of the suspended prison sentence and incarceration in the regular prison population. Technical violators, including those who miss appointments, curfews or fail drug tests, can serve two 90-day CRV periods before they face probation revocation and return to prison
