Welcome to the U.S. Probation Office. You have been sentenced to a federal term of supervision (probation or supervised release) by the U.S. District Court. You will be supervised by a U.S. Probation Officer who has specific statutory responsibilities to ensure that your behavior complies with the restrictions imposed by the conditions of your release.
The purpose of this information is to provide you with a convenient resource and reminder as to your conditions of supervision and the expectations that the U.S. Probation Office for the District of Idaho has for you during your term of supervision.
You are unique and have individual needs, issues and, perhaps, problems we will discuss. While probation officers must address concerns about public safety and the risk any person on supervision may present to the community, we also want to assist you in making positive changes in your life.
While on supervision, we expect you to adhere to your conditions of supervision. We also expect and want you to become a positive, contributing member of our community. In return, you should expect our officers and other employees to conduct themselves professionally and respectfully when they interact with you.
During your term of supervision you may expect that the U.S. Probation Officer assigned to you will use various methods consistent with the conditions of release to bring about improvements in your conduct or situation. This may include the modification of the conditions of your supervision if so warranted and approved by the Court. Such modification could include, although is not limited to, electronic monitoring, halfway house placement, and added conditions for participation in treatment, among others.
You may also expect that the U.S. Probation Officer will use all suitable methods to remain informed as to your behavior and activities in the community and to bring this information to the attention of the Court.
In this information you will find detailed explanations of each of the standard conditions of supervision that are imposed by this Court for both probation and supervised release.
Familiarize yourself with the definitions, procedures and requirements contained within. Your success on supervision will directly relate to the effort you put into your supervision and how well you understand and comply with your conditions of release.
