What Is Community Control?

Probation is now called "community control" and provides for terms and conditions you must comply with in order not to go to jail.Community control requires you to work with a "probation officer" (P.O.) for a given period of time as set by the court.  A common misconception is that the probation officer will actively work against you in an effort to return you to jail.  Most of the time, the probation officer is working to make sure you comply with the court order and stay out of jail.  It is up to you to show up and make sure the probation...
