Annotation: This article describes a project to create a sanction program for noncompliant behavior for Federal offenders under the supervision of the U.S. probation office in the District of Nevada.
Abstract: The intent of the program is to identify most, if not all, noncompliant behavior and to provide a choice of sanctions in response to each type of behavior. In the development of the program, the probation office first identified and formulated 23 separate categories of noncompliant conduct; these categories are outlined in this article. The next step identified sanction choices. Ten categories of sanctions were identified by the probation office. They are no action, informal resolution, oral or written reprimand, formal in-office admonishment, the latter plus notification of the court or the U.S. Parole Commission, mandatory "noncompliant staffing," the latter plus notification of the court or the U.S. Parole Commission, court or U.S. Parole Commission intervention, mandatory request for warrant/revocation, and arrest. Overall, the program has provided guidelines to help officers respond responsibly and consistently to noncompliance incidents. A table shows sample violations and appropriate sanctions.
