Our agency wants to ensure Family and Friends have a good understanding of the role of the supervising officer and the conditions of supervision. We encourage you to talk to the client and ask them what is required of them. Clients must meet with their officer as instructed. Having your encouragement and support is vital to their success. Some examples of how Family and Friends can assist with a client’s success include providing clients with an alcohol and drug free environment, encouraging clients to attend classes and/or programs as recommended by their officer, and assisting clients with transportation. If the client is experiencing difficulties in meeting any of their requirements, including failing to report, contact should be made with the supervising officer immediately. Our agency promotes having good communication with the officer to discuss any problems or issues that may arise, as well as positive behaviors. If the officer is not available, you may ask to speak with their supervisor.
