Yeah the way I understand it (I haven't started the job yet) those who were sentenced to time in state prison and who are going to serve the remainder of their time outside prison, have to be Non/Non/Non's (Non Violent, Non Narcotics, Non Sex offenders)
That's not to say that a previous charge years before could not have been a violent felony. i.e. Guy does time for armed robbery, gets out and serves his parole with the state successfully, then later gets picked up for simple possession and serves probation at the county level. So yes, you can be supervising someone who has a violent history but who is not currently serving time for a violent crime. This is one of the reasons I buy into applying the STRONG approach, (Static Risk Assessment and Offender Needs Guide) to base the intensity of supervision on those individuals most likely to violate their probation and those with violent histories.
