The two distinct forms of supervision after sentencing are known as parole and probation:
Parole is the release from a correctional facility after an offender serves part of a sentence, whereas Probation is granted in addition to or in lieu of imprisonment.
Both impose specific conditions which, if violated, can result in the parole or probation being revoked.
