The Emerging Paradigm in Probation and Parole in the United States
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v46 n3-4 p1-11 2008
There is an emerging paradigm in probation and parole in the United States. That new outlook encompasses a realization that these forms of supervision of offenders must meet the challenges of an increasing number of parolees and probationers. Recidivism continues to be the primary outcome measure for probation, as it is for all corrections programs. To implement effective probation programs, several steps appear necessary. State lawmakers can enact policies that can institute evidence-based criminal justice policy changes that can better meet the goals of sentencing. There is a need for the redefinition of the purposes of parole revocations.
