Probation, Supervised Release or Parole Program
Although the 32 counties participating in the Community Corrections Act (CCA) provide services to persons on probation, supervised release or parole, the department provides these services to adult offenders in the remaining 55 counties. Juvenile probation and parole services in non-CCA counties are provided by county probation agents or by state agents under contract to the counties. In either case the state pays up to 50 percent of the agent's salary.
Types of Release
Sentencing to Service (STS) Program
STS is a sentencing alternative for courts that puts carefully selected, nonviolent offenders to work on community improvement projects. Supervised STS crews work in parks and other public areas, frequently in combination with jail time. The Minnesota Department of Corrections, courts, and local governments operate STS. City, county, township, school districts, state, and nonprofit entities may submit project proposals. Submitted proposals should outline anticipated community improvement projects.

Intensive Supervised Release (ISR) Program
This statewide program provides intensive supervision of offenders seven days a week, 365 days a year - including four face-to-face contacts weekly, electronic home monitoring, mandatory work or school, daily curfews, mandatory restitution, and random drug testing. Specially trained corrections agents whose caseloads are 15 or less supervise offenders deemed high-risk to the public who are released from department institutions. The department has agents in several locations across the state.
