PROBATION

​​Probation is difficult. Many people on supervision do not have support networks in place to help them succeed. Unfortunately, the majority of those on probation will go back to jail or prison.

Overview

Probation may be ordered by a judge as part of a sentence for someone who has been found guilty of, or had adjudication withheld for, a crime.

As an alternative to incarceration, probation allows the individual to live in the community while being supervised by a probation officer.

Florida Justice Center assists those on probation with early termination, modification of terms of supervision, and obtaining travel permits.
