Adult Probation

The Hidalgo County Community Supervision and Corrections Department is a public agency dedicated to the protection of the community and committed to the belief that facilitating positive change in probationers results in responsible and productive behavior, which in turn enhances the quality of life for all members of the community.

Community Supervision is placement of an offender under supervision for a specified length of time, as ordered by a court, with court-imposed rules and conditions. Community supervision (formerly called Adult Probation) may be ordered for misdemeanor or felony offenses and is generally imposed instead of a jail or prison sentence.
