Probation Reporting Level

This report displays the number of clients by reporting level under SMC's classification guidelines, demographics, and reporting level changes. This data report is updated quarterly. 

Probation Reporting Guidelines/Classification System 

SMC's new reporting guidelines are broken up into three phases. Clients will move to the next phase based on whether they are making progress on their court-ordered conditions.  

Phase 1:  All clients report in-person once a month for the first 90 days. After 3 months, if the client is successful staying compliant with their court-ordered conditions, they will move to phase 2. 

Phase 2: The client will report virtually (or by phone if a virtual meeting is not possible) once a month. After 90 days successfully on phase 2, the client may move to phase 3. 

Phase 3: Phase 3 has no reporting requirement for the remainder of probation. The client still needs to keep up with their court-ordered conditions, but they no longer need to report to their counselor. 

We are using Seattle's Racial Equity Toolkit to guide implementation of these reporting guidelines, and we will evaluate the new system’s impact over the coming months.
