Field Supervision Services is dedicated to public safety, best practices and positive offender behavior change. It is the core of Josephine County Community Corrections to monitor adult offenders who are placed on probation by the Court or released on parole or post-prison supervision by the Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision. Fourteen sworn, certified parole and probation officers and two support staff supervise approximately 1000 felony and misdemeanor offenders in the community. Parole and probation officers perform a wide range of services beginning with intake and assessment to treatment referral as well as interventions and sanctions. Supervision is driven by needs and risks, and treatment decisions are based on a multi-disciplinary triage to determine the best case plan for the individual and their current situation. Field Supervision Services works together with in-house drug and alcohol counselors and contracts for services for mental health and sex offender counseling as well as Drug Court treatment. Parole and probation officers also enforce the conditions of supervision and respond to violations of those conditions through a continuum of sanctions. These officers also work closely with other law enforcement agencies as well as all social service agencies in the community. Oregon Department of Corrections, through an inter-governmental agreement with Josephine County, primarily funds Field Supervision Services. Oregon Revised Statutes and Oregon Administrative Rule mandates these services.
