Summary

This best-selling community-based corrections text focuses on all forms of corrections and correctional facilities outside of jails and prisons, from traditional incarceration programs to the most current programs such as electronic monitoring, house arrest, day-treatments, bootcamps, and fines. Despite decreasing crime rates, the prison population continues to increase. As the Federal Government sentences more and more individuals, the topic of community-based corrections is becoming increasingly important because of prison costs and space issues. A practical and balanced approach, this text reflects a strong emphasis on the legal matters related to alternative corrections.
