Intensive Probation Supervision

Individuals sentenced to Intensive Probation Supervision (IPS) are provided an enhanced level of supervision and engagement with their probation officer through the increased contacts the program requires. The probation officer monitors the individuals on IPS by conducting frequent visits to their residence, employment, and treatment locations.  The frequency of contacts may be reduced as the individual moves through the IPS levels. An individual who successfully engages and demonstrates progress with the requirements of the IPS Program earns the opportunity to transition to Standard Probation upon approval from the Court.
