Probation is generally granted in lieu of jail time. There are two types of probation, which are generally referred to as Formal Probation and Summary Probation. Formal probation requires the individual to periodically check in with their probation officer. Summary probation is an informal probation, which does not generally require periodic check-ins with a probation officer.
