Intensive Supervised Probation (ISP) for residents of Douglas County, Kansas.
Intensive Supervised Probation (ISP)
Purpose of Intensive Supervised Probation (ISP)
- Intensive Supervision Probation (ISP) targets adults convicted of Level 5-7 offenses that are predominantly non-violent felonies, including some felony drug offenses.
- Sentencing follows the Kansas Sentencing Guidelines Grid established in 1993.
- Offenders must be placed on adult ISP by the Court and are required to sign an Order of Assignment to Community Corrections, which lists some of the offender's conditions of probation.
- The program attempts to exclude persons who have a long and serious history of resorting to violence and persons who have a history of aggressive sexually deviant behavior.
Requirements of Offenders
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.
