The Community Corrections Division is charged with monitoring and enforcing conditions set by the Court and the Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision when and offender is placed on Parole or Probation.
Offenders are often ordered by the Court to have "no contact" with the victim (or victims) of their crimes. These orders appear on release agreements and sentence orders and as conditions for parole/post-prison supervision and probation. If the offender violates this conditions, there can be serious consequences. If you are a crime victim listed on a "no contact" order and the offender is not abiding by that order, call 911. It is important to remember that no protective order provides absolute safety.
