The best-selling COMMUNITY-BASED CORRECTIONS delivers essential information on the wide array of punishment and treatment programs that constitute alternatives to prison and jail. Although some offenders need to be incarcerated for public safety reasons, this book argues that the vast majority of convicted offenders can be effectively supervised in the community using programs that meet the level of risk and needs that each individual poses. Offering a balanced approach that reflects a strong emphasis on practical and legal matters, the book provides solid coverage of numerous programs, including probation, parole, electronic monitoring, house arrest, day-treatment centers, boot camps, restitution, and fines.
