Post-Release Community Supervision and Mandatory Supervision

In October 2011, the State of California implemented the Public Safety Realignment Act of 2011, also known as Assembly Bill 109 (AB109). AB 109 transferred responsibility for some of the state prisoner population from CDCR to California counties. 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, which in most counties is administered by probation departments. In addition, AB 109 requires that individuals convicted of certain felonies that were not considered violent or serious as defined by California Penal Code Sections 667.5(c)and 1192.7(c)  nor high risk sex offenders as defined by CDCR  and did not have a  history of these type of convictions, have their time served in local jails, where previously they would have been sentenced to state prison. The new sentencing scheme is outlined in PC § 1170(h). If you have questions about whether you fall under AB 109, please contact your attorney.

If you are informed that you will be on Post-Release Community Supervision or Mandatory Supervision upon your release from jail or prison, you should contact the Adult Probation Department for specific information about the length and terms of your supervision. The Adult Probation Department is committed to your success and will work with you to make your return to San Francisco a safe and successful one. 

Sex Offender

In an effort to improve service delivery to Sex Offender probationers, the Adult Probation Department provides intensive supervision and utilizes community resources to reduce illegal behaviors of sexual offenders.

The Sex Offender Containment (Model) is an approach that the Adult Probation Department utilizes to manage Sex Offenders in the San Francisco community. The primary objective is to promote and ensure public safety, victim protection, and reparation for victims. Criminal Justice and public agencies coordinate, collaborate and share information with the goal of promoting public safety and the successful re-integration of the probationer in the community. Probationers who have a history of sex offenses are sent through assessment tools that are evidenced based processes and appropriate supervision is determined using these tools.
