DCS Annual Report 2015 - Page 11

WHERE WE SERVE ONE OFFICER • ONE FAMILY • ONE COMMUNITY In the past, supervision caseloads were based on the criminal justice status of the offenders. The creation of DCS enables caseloads to be based on geographic area instead. MORE EFFICIENT Less time spent traveling will allow officers to effectively handle more cases and spend more time on each case. BETTER QUALITY OF SERVICE Officers will become better experts at identifying and accessing local community resources. CONTINUITY OF CARE Officers will have the opportunity to establish enduring relationships with the offenders they serve, even though the offender may change criminal justice statuses over time. georgia department of community supervision 8
