Summary: Community corrections have undergone a revolution over the past decade. Probation and parole populations have more than doubled, and offenders have generally committed more serious crimes. Money for these programs has not increased, placing pressure on the programs to create tougher but cheaper sanctions, while at the same time promising to rehabilitate offenders and keep communities safe. During this period, new programs have been set up, among them electronic monit
oring, boot camps, and house arrest -- some successful, others not. This book brings together the best available information on the current context, implementation, and impact of community-based sanctions. It provides an overview of the changing face of community corrections and the debates about it, followed by commentary on and assessments of various programs.
