Supervision: Intensive Probation Supervision The Adult Intensive Probation Supervision Program is a sentencing alternative for offenders who would otherwise have been incarcerated in the State Department of Corrections at initital sentencing or as a result of a technical violation of standard probation. Intensive Probation Supervision (IPS) is designed to provide strict control, surveillance, and supervision in a manner which will restrict and monitor the offender's movement and activities in the community while emphasizing the payment of restitution to victims.

Offenders are under house arrest and are monitored by teams consisting of an Adult Probation Officer and a Surveillance Officer. The team monitors the offenders by conducting field visits at least four times per week for Phase One clients. Weekly contacts may be reduced as the offender moves through the Intensive Probation Supervision phases. Offenders are required by statute to be employed, to submit their paychecks to Intensive Probation Supervision, and to complete forty (40) hours of community restitution per month. An offender who successfully completes the rigorous Intensive Probation Supervision Program is then graduated to Standard Probation.
