Default Why does the Dept of Corrections want to do a home visit?

Anyone know why the dept of corrections wants me to let them do a home visit in two days? My man is getting out in about 40 days... Is this a standard thing?

Not sure what to expect during this visit and what the purpose is... He was living here before being sent to prison, so not sure why this needs to be done at all.

Might be a Florida thing, but usually the local Parole Office that will handle his parole does the home inspection. Its a normal procedure for inmates nearing release. The PO wants to know that their parolee has a stable environment with no drugs, alcohol or weapons on the premises. Even if the parolee has lived there before....maybe even especially if the parolee has lived there pre-incarceration.

Ok that makes sense.. He's serving his whole sentence and the judge ordered no probation, so hoping it's a one time check on things... They were fine with our living situation the first time they came out.

You have a thread on this question from December (HERE) where you replied:

Cool. Thanks. He said he was going to ask about it on Monday. I would prefer to mail them if they still allow it so he has a little dignity about getting the clothes.

EDIT: Also, read some of the other threads in this forum concerning dressouts

Um, no. Something isn't right. If he's serving his whole sentence, he won't be on parole (unless Florida has Mandatory Supervision). No parole, no need for a home inspection.

EDIT: Florida sucks. There are some instances of mandatory supervision:

Conditional Release

Conditional Release requires mandatory post-prison supervision for inmates who are sentenced for certain violent crimes and who have served a prior felony commitment at a state or federal correctional institution , or who are sentenced as a habitual offender, violent habitual offender, violent career criminal, or court designated sexual predator. Unlike parole, conditional release is not discretionary release.

Upon release from prison, inmates who are subject to conditional release are supervised for a period of time equal to the gain-time that they received in prison. These offenders are subject to strict conditions of supervision set by the Commission and this supervision can be revoked and the releasee returned to prison if the Commission determines that a willful and substantial violation of supervision has occurred.

Addiction Recovery Supervision

This program requires mandatory post-prison supervision for offenders released from a state correctional facility who have a history of substance abuse or addiction or have participated in any drug treatment, and have not been convicted of a disqualifying offense. The law requires the Commission to set the terms and conditions of supervision, this supervision can be revoked and the releasee returned to prison if the Commission determines that a willful and substantial violation of supervision has occurred.

Yes, looks like he'll be on Conditional Release. Is your home within whatever the residency restrictions are for your area / state? Also, No toys, no kids movies, etc, in the home....lots of things that can get him revoked. Research Florida's SO laws NOW, you need to know these so you can help him stay violation free. You've got 40 days.

I already know the rules as he was on probation before. It's ridiculous that being seen peeing in your yard by a teenager is a sex crime... Florida is absurd

Not sure if this is true in FL, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is.

Oregon has "Post release supervision officers" - nearly all inmates, but definitely sex offenders, have to have post release supervision when they're released. It's essentially the same thing as paroling out, except they've served their entire sentence, and the length of post release supervision is set by the judge at sentencing.

Everyone calls the post release supervision officers "PO's", even though, technically, they aren't on parole. It's just easier to say, and true PO's pull double duty as a post release supervision officer and it's all run out of the same offices, so we simply call them PO's even if they aren't serving in that capacity.

As mentioned above, the home visit is always done unless the person has no home to release to. I hope your home visit passes with flying colors and you don't run into any problems on that side of things.
