State Offers Automated System for Probation, Parole Fees

The Tennessee Department of Correction has launched an automated fee collection system that allows offenders on probation or parole to pay their supervision and other fees online through wire transfer or by phone. Family and friends also may make deposits into individual accounts through the automated system. The department reports the system should streamline services and enhance accountability while freeing up probation and parole officers to spend more time in the community supervising offenders.
