Intensive Supervision Program
The Intensive Supervision Program (ISP) promotes public safety through increased accountability that can include electronic monitoring, increased drug/alcohol testing and unannounced home or work contacts. This program is designed for offenders who present increased risk and/or needs. Offender accountability is enhanced through community service, restitution payments, curfews, and mandatory employment.
Opportunity for offender long-term behavioral change is provided through increased case management, research based programming such as cognitive behavioral intervention, mental health and substance abuse treatment, life skills development and educational/vocational training.
Who Qualifies For ISP?
- Wyoming adult inmates who qualify for a sentence modification by the sentencing judge. It is the philosophy of WDOC that all Boot Camp graduates who are granted a sentence modification should be placed under ISP based on available space, unless placed in a community alternative program.
- Inmates eligible for parole and recommended for ISP by the Board of Parole.
- Offenders awaiting disposition in District Court and who are likely to be sentenced to a correctional facility. This process can be initiated by a recommendation in the Presentence Investigation Report.
- Offenders under traditional probation and parole experiencing increased difficulties and requiring enhanced supervision.
How ISP Works
- If accepted into ISP, an offender will spend approximately twelve (12) months in the program, working through three (3) graduated levels of supervision. Only offenders who successfully complete levels one through three will be considered for transfer to traditional supervision.
- Level I is the most restrictive of the programs, under which the offender must adhere to an individualized curfew and schedule. The offender has limited access to the community and restricted visitation that is limited only to family.
- Level II requires a continued adherence to a curfew and schedule but allows for greater access to the community and an increase in social and recreational activities.
- Level III allows for the transition to traditional supervision. The offender’s curfew and schedule are relaxed while the offender works towards independence.
What an Offender can expect on ISP
- To participate in cognitive skills classes, along with individual treatment programming.
- To submit to frequent, random urinalysis, and breathalyzer testing.
- Frequent unannounced home visits.
- To work 40 hours per week.
- To pay all bills and court ordered obligations.
