Each offender is required to enter into an intensive supervised plan that may include vocational, educational, psychological, alcohol and drug treatment, and/or a cognitive skills program. In addition, home visits may be conducted by an Intensive Supervision Officer and/or Surveillance Officer to verify compliance with their conditions of supervision. Offenders are supervised based on a risk and needs scoring instrument, which determines the appropriate supervision level. Through intensive supervision, Douglas County Community Corrections staff closely monitors the activities of offenders and provide opportunities for offenders to prepare themselves to remain law abiding and contributing community members.
Offenders are required to make regular restitution payments to victims and pay court costs. Additional fees may be paid by some offenders in the form of reimbursements to help defray program costs. Others are given the opportunity to pay off court ordered costs by participating in the Community Service Work Program.
