Community Supervision Peer Support Program Guidelines

The Community Supervision Peer Support Program Guidelines were developed by community supervision leaders, front-line officers, and peer team support members operating peer support programs in community-based supervision agencies within the United States. The guidelines are intended to support community supervision agencies, including probation, parole, and pretrial service agencies, in creating and maintaining peer support programs. The guidelines reflect the commonly accepted practices within community-based supervision agencies at publication. The guidelines should be aligned with state-specific requirements (e.g., confidentiality laws and union contracts).
