CSOSA’s impact on public safety is best illustrated by those who successfully complete their term of supervision, indicating that they have complied with supervision conditions and generally achieved stability. CSOSA believes that the manner in which we supervise individuals under our jurisdiction, in combination with the supports provided to promote stability, helps individuals integrate into their communities and ultimately promotes a safer District of Columbia.

For every 10 individuals leaving CSOSA supervision in 2020, more than seven (71%) completed it successfully.

CSOSA achieves high successful completion rates as a result of the combination of supports and close supervision and accountability strategies, including partnerships with local law enforcement partners.

Accountability Tours: In FY2020, CSOSA collaborated with the Metropolitan Police Department to conduct 753 joint home visits (known as accountability tours) for those supervised at the highest risk levels.
Warrants: In FY2020, with the cooperation of the United States Marshals Service and the Metropolitan Police Department, CSOSA reduced the number of warrants for people under supervision by ten percent.
