Glossary of Terms

Charged with the mission of supervising over 20,000 offenders living in the community, the Division of Offender Supervision and Enforcement Services has oversight of all field operations, including regional offices, Interstate Compact Services, Special Operations Unit, Field Programs, Recruitment and Standards, Compliance and Performance.

The Office of Program, Planning and Development facilitates the provision of vital rehabilitative offender programs for mental health and behavioral services, domestic violence counseling, housing procurement and administration of specialized offender programs.

SCDPPPS uses a validated actuarial risk/needs assessment tool to determine the likelihood of reoffending and identify criminogenic needs. Individuals are placed on an appropriate supervision level based on court orders and the assessment tool. Supervision plans are developed to address criminogenic needs through targeted referral services.
