What is community supervision?

Community supervision is a requirement that may apply to you — either as part of a sentence that you serve after release from incarceration, OR as a sentence that you serve instead of incarceration. If you are under community supervision, this means you are monitored by a correctional officer while living in the community, and you are subject to certain rules — like where you can live and work, who you can contact, and people or places where you must regularly report.
