Corrections Unit

​The Division of Hearings and Appeals (DHA) Corrections Unit handles adult probation, parole, extended supervision, and juvenile aftercare supervision cases. Revocation of supervision for these types of cases requires an administrative hearing unless the hearing is waived by the individual whose supervision is being revoked. Requests for hearings in these cases are sent to DHA by the Department of Corrections.

The hearings are typically held where the offender is being detained, usually a county jail or state correctional institution. If the offender is not detained, the hearing may take place in a DOC office or other venue. Usually these hearings are conducted by video and parties may physically be in different locations. DHA attempts to schedule a hearing within 50 days of the offender's arrest or detention (Wis. Stat. § 302.335 (2)(b)).
