The Adult Field Division is responsible for the supervision of adult offenders sentenced to terms of traditional probation as well as Public Safety Realignment terms of post-release community supervision (PRCS) and mandatory supervision. Multi-Agency Task Forces and Specialized Supervision Units apply targeted enforcement and supervision strategies that effectively address various types of offenders.

Ascend provides re-entry program services to clients.

The Post-Release Community Supervision and Mandatory Supervision

In response to Assembly Bill (AB) 109 (Public Safety Realignment), Probation assumed responsibility for supervising offenders convicted of certain felony offenses upon their release from state prison, as well as those offenders no longer eligible for commitment to state prison. Officers assigned to supervise these caseloads are responsible for providing intensive proactive field supervision and connecting offenders with appropriate services in the community.

Family Violence Unit

Provides Batterers' Treatment Program referral information to probation clients to comply with probation conditions.

Gang Suppression Unit

The Probation Department’s Gang Suppression Unit is recognized as one of the most experienced and knowledgeable law enforcement units within Sacramento County in the area of gangs.  The Gang Unit works closely with the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department, the Sacramento Police Department, the District Attorney’s Office and other law enforcement agencies in a joint effort to suppress gang activity.

High Risk Probation (HRP) Unit

The High Risk Probation Unit provides intensive supervision to high-risk felony probationers ages 18-40 who pose the greatest risk to public safety. The HRP unit utilizes a risk-based supervision system, where all clients are screened with an assessment tool to determine their risk level and treatment needs. All clients receive a supervision plan with clearly articulated goals. Clients who demonstrate law-abiding behavior will earn their way to less intensive supervision.

Interstate Compact

The Interstate Compact Unit maintains compliance with federal law regulating the movement of offenders between states. Officers assigned to this unit process requests from offenders to move out of state and provide supervision for offenders – granted probation in other states – who now reside in Sacramento County. 

Sacramento County Auto Theft Suppression Task Force (SAC-CATS)

Funded partially by DMV registration fees, the SAC-CATS team is a partnership involving Probation, California Highway Patrol and other law enforcement agencies. The team conducts surveillance, suppression, and investigation of crimes associated with automobile theft.  

Office of Traffic Safety/Driving Under the Influence (OTS/DUI) Unit

The OTS/DUI Unit, supported by grant funds from the Office of Traffic Safety, intensively monitors drivers on probation for felony DUI or multiple DUI convictions. In addition to the full range of supervision and enforcement activities, probation officers assigned to this unit conduct random alcohol and drug tests and provide special monitoring for compliance with court orders.

High-Tech Crimes Task Force/Identity Theft Task Force

This team combines the expertise of approximately 30 agencies. The Deputy Probation Officer assigned to this team participates in investigating those crimes in which high technology is used as an instrument in committing or assisting in committing a crime or in which high technology is the target of a criminal act.

Sex Offender Unit/GPS Monitoring

The Sex Offender/GPS Unit monitors adult sexual offenders throughout the county. This unit provides intensive supervision, ensures sex offenders comply with State registration requirements, and assists offenders with counseling and treatment program referrals.

Rancho Cordova Community Partnership (RCCP)

Probation has partnered with Code Enforcement, Animal Control, and the Rancho Cordova Police Department to create a specialized team that uses a code-enforcement approach to address issues in targeted areas in Rancho Cordova. In 2013, this partnership won the "Most Innovative Program" award from the California Association of Code Enforcement Officers.
