Intensive Probation Supervision


Probationers placed on Intensive Probation Supervision (IPS) are under house arrest and are monitored by teams consisting of two  Probation Officers. The team monitors the offenders by conducting frequent field visits to probationer residences, employments, and treatment locations. The frequency of contacts may be reduced as the probationer moves through the IPS phases. Probationers are required by statute to be employed, to submit their paychecks to Intensive Probation Supervision, and to complete a certain number of community restitution hours each month. A probationer who successfully completes the rigorous IPS Program is then graduated to Standard Probation.
