Intensive Supervision Caseload and High Risk DUI Probation Task Forces: Probation, with the funding from an Office of Traffic Safety Grant, developed an intensive supervision program for the highest risk and/or habitual DUI offenders under its jurisdiction. The mission statement of the Placer County DUI Intensive Supervision Caseload and High Risk DUI Probation Task Forces is to increase supervision of high-risk, repeat offenders by increasing DUI probationers’ compliance with Court orders. In addition, to providing proactive field supervision , enforcement of court orders for specified offenders, and warrant sweeps; probation officers assigned to these caseloads participate with other law enforcement agencies in DUI suppression efforts including sobriety check points countywide.
