The monitoring duties conducted by OSS staff consists of the review of supervision reports, financial reports and arrest records. OSS staff are not assigned high level or sex offender cases. (Offender supervision level is determined by a risk and needs assessment administered to offenders.)   

OSS staff experience minimum contact with offenders in the SCDPPPS County Offices. Class 1 Agents continue to address and handle all offender violations. OSS do not perform face to face contacts with offenders in the field, do not issue or serve legal process and do not transport offenders. OSS staff do, however, attend the SCDPPPS 3-week Basic Training to learn basic supervision skills. OSS staff also receive office safety training. Interested applicants can find the applications online at https://www.governmentjobs.com/careers/sc/SCDPPPS.
