Strength-based program philosophy:
- We strive to set and enforce boundaries set by the courts, in a way that is firm but fair and respectful.
- By treating individuals with respect we can help them change their image of themselves from that of a criminal offender to one of an upright citizen.
- Part of that respect means holding them accountable for their bad behaviors and acknowledging their good.
Reporting and Accountability:
- TNCSA maintains a client database and can provide the court with program data and/or individual client information as needed.
- The courts receive timely written reports of all problem behavior that could result in revocation of probation.
- When appropriate, and with Court approval, Probation may utilize an increase in supervision level for minor violation as an effort to avoid behavior that could lead to revocation of probation.
