Community Supervision and Corrections (Adult Probation)

The Dallas County CSCD is a professional criminal justice agency that serves the public under the authority of the criminal judiciary system.

What is probation?

Community Supervision is the supervised release of a defendant within the community in lieu of incarceration in jail or prison (versus parole, which is the supervision in the community upon early release from prison).
