What is Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS)? Pursuant to the Post Release Community Supervision Act of 2011, PRCS is a form of supervision provided to an offender who has been released from a CA Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to the jurisdiction of a county agency, after having served for non-serious, non-violent, or non-high-risk sex offenses.
PRCS includes a population of offenders, who serve their sentence in county jail and can be ordered by the court to serve their sentence in jail or to “split” the sentence between jail custody and a separate period of Mandatory Supervision.
