  Annotation: This study presented statistics about adult offenders under community supervision while on probation or parole during 2010.
Abstract: This study examines changes in community supervision populations during 2010 and prior years. Results of this study show that by yearend 2010 the number of adult offenders under community supervision declined by 66,700 to reach 4,887,900 offenders; about 4,055,500 adults were on probation; more than 4.4 million adults moved onto or off probation; an estimated 840,700 adults were on parole; and about 1.1 million offenders moved onto or off parole during the year. Both parole entries (down 0.5 percent) and exits (down 1.8 percent) declined during 2010. This report documents a slowing of growth in these populations over time and declines in recent years; provides statistics on the number of offenders entering and exiting probation and parole and the turnover of these populations; and outcomes of supervision, including the rate at which probationers or parolees completed the terms of their supervision or were incarcerated for violating the conditions of supervision. Detailed information by jurisdiction is included, such as entries and exits by type; sex, race, and Hispanic origin of offenders; offense type; supervision status; and global positioning system (GPS) offender tracking, including sex offenders.
