Key Statistic: Probationers
On This Page
About this Key Statistic

Probationers are offenders under adult supervision who are placed on supervision in the community by the court, generally as an alternative to incarceration. However, some jurisdictions also sentence probationers to a combined short-term incarceration sentence immediately followed by probation, which is referred to as a split sentence. Probationers can have a number of different supervision statuses, including active supervision, which means they are required to regularly report to a probation authority in person, by mail, by telephone, or electronically. Some probationers may be on an inactive status, which means they are excluded from regularly reporting.
