Post-Release Community Supervision (PRCS)
Under AB 109, individuals who were committed to state prison for certain felonies (nonviolent, non-serious and non-sexual) will be released to Post-Release Community Supervision (PRCS) per California Penal Code section 3451.
For Sex Offenders
The Sex Offender Unit provides supervision for individuals who have committed sex crimes. Our primary focus is to provide adequate supervision and treatment to reduce the risk of re-offending. Many clients receive treatment under the Containment Model, a collaborative approach to supervision, which centers three key elements:
- Specialized supervision and treatment
- Collaborative teamwork
- Preventing future victimization
We coordinate and collaborate with different agencies to promote public safety and the successful re-integration of our clients in the community.
Mandatory Supervision 1170(h)(5)(b)
Under Realignment, the Mandatory Supervision Unit provides supervision to individuals sentenced to prison under a “split sentence,” which involves a portion of time served in the county jail and the remainder of time served in the community supervised by a probation officer.
You may contact the Adult Probation Department for more information on the Intensive Supervision Services Division. We provide supportive services such as housing, employment, education, substance abuse treatment, outpatient behavioral treatment, and case management services. We will work with you to make your return to San Francisco a safe and successful one.
