Intensive Supervision Program

The Intensive Supervision Program (ISP) promotes public safety through increased accountability that can include electronic monitoring, increased drug/alcohol testing and unannounced home or work contacts. This program is designed for offenders who present increased risk and/or needs. Offender accountability is enhanced through community service, restitution payments, curfews, and mandatory employment.

Opportunity for offender long-term behavioral change is provided through increased case management, research-based programming such as cognitive behavioral intervention, mental health and substance abuse treatment, life skills development and educational/vocational training.

Who Qualifies For ISP?

  • Wyoming high risk adult inmates who qualify for a sentence modification by the sentencing judge. Boot Camp graduates who are granted a sentence modification may be placed under ISP upon application based on available space, unless placed in a community alternative program.

  • High risk inmates eligible for parole and recommended for ISP by the Board of Parole.

  • A Wyoming offender identified as high risk according to a validated Risk/Needs instrument utilized by the Wyoming Department of Corrections who is pending sentencing and who indicates a need for ISP.

  • Offenders under traditional probation and parole who are high risk and experiencing increased difficulties or potential revocation action and requiring enhanced supervision.

How ISP Works

  • If accepted into ISP, an offender will spend approximately nine (9) to twelve (12) months in the program, working through four (4) graduated phases of supervision. Only offenders who successfully complete phases one (1) through four (4) will be considered for transfer to traditional supervision.

  • Phase 1 (Stabilization Phase) is the most restrictive of the programs, under which the offender must adhere to an individualized curfew and schedule. The offender has limited access to the community and restricted visitation that is limited to approved visitors only. Must be 45 plus days substance free to advance to Phase 2.

  • Phase 2 (Development Phase) requires a continued adherence to a residence curfew and submit a weekly itinerary. All associations must be approved. Must be 45 plus days substance free to advance to Phase 3.

  • Phase 3 (Maintenance Phase) allows for the transition to the final phase of the program. The offender’s curfew is more relaxed while the offender works towards independence. The itinerary is no longer required unless difficulties arise. They must have 60 plus days of being substance free to advance to Phase 4.

  • Phase 4 (Transition Phase) is the final phase before moving to traditional supervision. They must complete a prevention/action plan and self evaluation. The curfew is lifted and the weekly itinerary is not required. All associations must be approved. They must have 90 plus days of being substance free to complete the program.
