Do I have to report in person?

Is a Court Supervision Fee the same as Probation Services Fee?

No, a Court Supervision Fee is assessed on Court Supervision/Conditional Discharge cases and is only in effect while the special conditions of an order are being completed (i.e. treatment, public service work). Once all special conditions are complete the Court Supervision Fee ends. That is why it is important to keep in contact with your Probation Officer. A Probation Services Fee is assessed in probation cases and is to be paid monthly during the entire term of probation.
