Critical Issues in Adult Probation: International Assessment of Adult Probation.
Friday, Paul C.
This review of 150 documents from various countries describes probation or suspended sentencing systems, their use and effectiveness, legal and historical contexts for probation, and variations in eligibility criteria. Issues addressed by these materials include the following: (1) the movement of probation services toward a more client-centered focus; (2) the parallels between probation approaches and social/economic development; (3) the variances in purpose and structure of probation services among foreign countries; and (4) the effectiveness of systems using deferred sentencing rather than, or in addition to, probation.
