What are the different types of probation?

There are several types of probation:

  • Supervised Probation: This is the most common form of probation.  If an individual is placed on supervised probation, they have regular check-ins with their probation officer to help keep them on track and report progress to the Court.
  • Unsupervised Probation: Certain things need to be monitored, but monthly office visits, home visits, and urinanalysis testing is not required.
  • Courtesy Supervision: The individual is placed on probation in one county, but lives in another county within Arizona.
  • Interstate Compact: The individual is not an Arizona resident and was placed on probation in an Arizona county.  With approval, their requirements are transferred and they will complete their probation terms in the state they live.
  • Intensive Probation: Monitoring day or night, 24-7.  Mandatory, weekly, office visits where scheduled activities for the week are approved.  Pay checks must also be submitted regularly for monitoring.
