We are closing our office to the public in accordance with the guidance from health experts to limit contact through social distancing. During this time we will continue business as scheduled. If you need to contact us please call, email, and use the front door drop box until further notice.

  • Community Supervision and Corrections (CSCD)

    Effective immediately, as per CJAD : the COVID-19 outbreaks have required agencies to review current practices and policies related to a potential pandemic. Some Texas counties have been declared a Local State of Disaster Due to a Public Health Emergency; therefore, it is necessary for these areas to implement necessary protocols to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease. To assist probation departments with necessary changes, we want to provide as much flexibility as possible. For departments serving probationers in counties that have such declarations or for departments working with the direction of their local emergency management offices, TDCJ-CJAD is temporarily modifying the definition of a "Direct" case for supervision and funding purposes. By policy, CSCDs may develop alternate reporting mechanisms, such as telephone or video contacts. If you develop these policies, such contacts will count as "face-to-face" contacts related to our "Direct" definition. The ability to claim these contacts for direct funding will be in effect, at a minimum, thru May 31, 2020; this TDCJ-CJAD policy modification will be evaluated monthly, at the beginning of each month.

    Therefore, until further notice - Officers can contact their offenders by phone in lieu of meeting with the offender in the office:

    • office visits, including initial interviews, to be conducted via telephone with the offender. Staff shall use the "Office Visit" chrono type when making a chronological entry (NOT "Telephone" chrono) and the appropriate template at the discretion of the officer. In the office visit chrono, the CSCD staff member shall note that "this face-to-face is being done via telephone, as authorized by our emergency policies."
    • Officers shall be allowed to conduct TRAS via telephone since this is considered a face-to-face for purposes of direct.
    • Field Visits shall continue to be conducted. Field Team will use discretion in making field contacts (distancing, staying outside, etc.)
    • Office hours remain unchanged at this time
    • Guadalupe County CSCD shall follow all other County HR policy regarding COVID-19.
    • These policies are subject to amendment as the coronavirus situation in Guadalupe County changes or progresses.
    • If Staff does have contact with offenders ( Transfer Ins, etc…) – Use common sense responses: Social distancing ( 2 -3 feet separation distance) method, avoid physical contact when possible; wash hands frequently with soap for at least 20 seconds; avoid touching facial areas; use UA gloves and/or face mask if needed; utilize hand sanitizer.
