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?

The Dallas County CSCD is charged with public protection through the supervision of more than 40,981 offenders residing in Dallas County. We enforce the court ordered conditions of community supervision and provide the offender with a wide range of rehabilitative services and resources.

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).
