Probation supervises registered sex offenders that have been placed on formal probation or released from prison onto Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS). The primary focus of sex offender supervision is to enhance community safety, protect victims and prevent further sexual offending behavior by the offender.
Sex Offender Containment Model
The Sex Offender Containment Model is an approach that the Adult Probation Department utilizes to manage sex offenders in the Placer County community. The Probation Department monitors each offender’s compliance with specific court-ordered conditions of probation by engaging in frequent contact with offender, visiting the offender’s home, and by conducting collateral contacts with the offender’s family, sex offender treatment program, local law enforcement agencies and other social service agencies. The Probation Department also monitors each offender’s compliance with sex offender registration requirements, per section 290 of the Penal Code.
