Probation and Parole: Theory and Practice

From The Publisher
Based on the author's extensive experience as a senior New York State parole officer, this book features in-the-trenches practitioner's insights of the complex, “real” world of probation and parole. Comprehensive in approach, it explores the cutting-edge of both practice and theory with regard to all aspects of adult and juvenile probation, institutions, and parole—and highlights the current controversial issues. Includes actual materials (reports, forms, and narratives) encountered in the field of juvenile and adult probation and parole agencies throughout the country. Coverage ranges from history and administration; to sentencing and the presentence investigation; juvenile court, probation, institutions, and aftercare; prisons and community-based corrections; the indeterminate sentence and punishments; parole administration and services; theory and practice of rehabilitation; parole supervision; special problems and programs; and probation and parole in the Twenty- First Century. For those involved in Probation and Parole and Community Corrections.

Probation, Parole and Community Corrections

Focusing on the processes, institutions, and administration of community corrections, this textbook treats the elements of criminal and juvenile justice as inter-relating parts of whole systems. The political and economic determinants of corrections policies are emphasized. Chapters focus on the goals of community corrections, the function of the investigative report, the history and theory of probation, probation programs, jails and prisons, parole and parolees, parole programs, probation and parole organizations and operations, officer roles, theories of offender treatment, supervision, juvenile probation and parole, and the evaluation of programs.
