The Reduced Supervised Unit (RSU) is a specialized caseload for low-risk offenders who have satisfied the majority of probation conditions. They are referred to the program by their supervising officer after an evaluation to determine the offenders chances for successful completion of the program. Those offenders who have probation obligations to meet, yet are not at high-risk to reoffend, are likely candidates.
The goal of this program is to offer offenders a less restrictive environment in which to complete supervision.
The program rewards positive growth and positive completion of supervision conditions. As in all other programs, offenders are held accountable and are monitored.
Offenders supervised under the RSU are still subject to all general and special conditions of supervision and are required to immediately notify their parole/probation officer of any changes in their contact information (physical address, mailing address, and phone number). This can be achieved in writing through a monthly report, by telephone, or in person. Offenders having police contact resulting in new arrests or charges, or who are being released from custody need to immediately report in person to their parole/probation officer to discuss what impact this will have on their case and their eligibility to remain on the RSU. In these instances, written or telephonic contact will not suffice. Offenders who fail to adhere to the requirements of the RSU and who fail to keep their probation officer informed of their current contact information, may be subjected to an increase in supervision to a field unit, as well as imposition of other interventions and/or sanctions.
