Community Supervision and Corrections Department (Adult Probation Department)
The Bexar County CSCD is a professional criminal justice agency that serves the public under the authority of the criminal judiciary system.
The Bexar County CSCD is charged with public protection through the supervision of more than 30,000 offenders residing in Bexar County. We enforce the court ordered conditions of community supervision and provide the offender with a wide range of rehabilitative services and resources.
Community Supervision is the supervised release of a defendant within the community in lieu of incarceration in jail or prison (versus parole, which is the supervision in the community upon early release from prison).
There are 10 District Courts, 13 County Court at Law Courts, and 3 Juvenile District Courts in the Bexar County criminal justice system where the supervision staff is responsible for carrying out duties as directed by the Judge.
