Specialized Supervision Program

The Specialized Supervision Unit (SSU)

The Specialized Supervision Unit (SSU) is an intensive supervision strategy developed to target the high-risk youths that have violent offenses. These offenders may or may not have yet to establish a pattern of violent criminal behavior, and are in need of intensive supervision to block entrance into more violent crimes. SSU is a nightly program staffed from 2:00 pm through 11:00 pm by probation officers that specialize in intervention techniques. The intensive supervision Programs Section uses these evening visits as a pro-active step to prevent and deter criminal behavior as well as monitor the probationerís compliance to supervision conditions. SSU is supervised by a Senior Probation Officer. The mission of SSU compliments the various programs within the Department of Juvenile Services section to deter identify, deter, and respond to criminal behavior.
