Summary

This text is intended as a primary text in the Community-Based Corrections course, which is also known as probation and parole. This course can be found in both criminal justice and sociology departments at two- and four-year schools.

This best-selling 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-treatment, bootcamp and fines. A traditional and balanced approach, this new edition reflects a stronger emphasis on the legal matters related to alternative corrections.
