Supervision admissions refer to the number of offenders beginning a new period of community supervision by the Department of Corrections. This may be the result of either a new offense or a revocation of a previous supervision period. It does not include offenders already on supervision who receive an additional sentence for an offense different from the one that initially placed them on supervision.
Supervision sentences include:
an original sentence by the court to probation, community control or a pretrial intervention program, or
the supervision portion of a "split" sentence – prison followed by community control or probation, or
assignment to supervision as a condition of prison release, or
offenders from other states that Florida supervises through Interstate Compact agreements.
The following tables and charts describe offenders admitted to supervision from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010. Other years are sometimes featured to illustrate trends. For example, as the table below illustrates, community supervision admissions increased from the last fiscal year.
