Now that you are familiar with probation write a 2 page paper covering the following:
Imagine you are an officer who has been advised that a new probationer has been placed on your caseload. He is a drug offender placed on for possession of cocaine.
You have been asked to instruct the offender at 9 a.m the next morning. As a reference, the judge ordered your new probationer to complete 20 hours of community service, a 10-week drug rehabilitation program, and to pay $500 in court fees and costs. Set up a plan for completion. Include a fee schedule, placement into a treatment program, and an organization to complete community service in your plan.
Conduct research in your own state. What rehabilitation program and community organization would you use?
Also, be sure to advise the probationer of the consequences of failure to complete the tasks.
What will happen if the probationer does not complete the conditions?
