Early Termination of Federal Probation – The Policy That Guides Judges
Post #2 of a 3-Part Series
In this previous post on early termination of federal probation, we discussed the factors judges must consider by law when deciding whether or not to let somebody on federal supervision go early. In this post we’ll discuss the policy factors judges consider when making these decisions.
These policy factors are those that probation officers use when asked to make a recommendation regarding early termination of federal supervision. They are the standards adopted by the Judicial Conference Committee on Criminal Law in March of 2003.
There are nine of these policy factors, and each take a closer look at the offender
A close look at these factors show that there are a lot of areas to consider when attempting to terminate a term of federal supervision. The entire history of an offender is considered. Find out about these factors by reading our e-book specifically about early termination of federal probation.

Those that haven’t gotten into any trouble while on supervision, don’t see their Probation Officer’s more than just a few times per year, and are a complete waste of time and money for the government to continue to supervise, have the greatest chance for early termination.
There are however, two factors not shown here than make the biggest difference. In the next post, we’ll take a look at both.
