Aimed primarily at students who will be working in the field, this book offers a thorough, practical overview of the way our current system of probation and parole deals with convicted adults and juvenile offenders. This new edition is the only major text to combine the standard topics in probation and parole with full coverage of recent trends in community corrections, including such options as electronic monitoring, home incarceration, community day reporting centers, and victim compensation programs. Besides describing the range of current programs, the text discusses various classes of offenders, with a special section on the problems posed by juveniles. It also examines such professional topics as training and officer effectiveness, as well as the larger issues of economic and political influences on the system.
