A person can be sentenced to probation (community supervision) in lieu of being sentenced to jail (misdemeanor offenses) or prison (felony offenses).
The McLennan County Community Supervision and Corrections Department (CSCD) is responsible for supervising persons who are placed on probation. Probation is not the same as parole, which is the conditional release of an offender after their release from prison. Probation is a period of supervision that is granted to people who would otherwise be sent to a term in county jail, state jail, or prison.
Probation supervision allows individuals the opportunity to work, support their families, perform community service hours, to pay taxes and to pay costs related to their offenses, and to attend programs designed to address their specific risk to reoffend and their individual needs. It is our hope that those under our supervision are successful in making positive changes in an attempt to eliminate recidivism and avoid incarceration.
Each probationer has specific conditions set by the Court that they are to abide by while on supervision. Failure to abide by these conditions may result in a variety of sanctions up to and including revocation of supervision and incarceration. Progressive sanctions and incentives are utilized in an attempt to address both negative and positive behaviors exhibited by individuals under our supervision.
