NCCD Guidance on Community Supervision During COVID-19
As COVID-19 continues to impact how justice systems operate across the United States, supervision of people who are on probation or parole is changing. Some shifts include in-person check-ins with probation and parole officers being widely curtailed and replaced with phone calls and video conferences; drug testing being dramatically cut back; at least one state decreasing the number of people placed on electronic monitoring; and some law enforcement agencies halting most arrests for probation violations.
NCCD has released guidance to help community corrections agencies accommodate the influx of people being released from institutions due to the pandemic. Read it here and reach out if you would like to talk with us.
