Summary

The prison system is changing. But what's the best direction? COMMUNITY-BASED CORRECTIONS shows you how the prison system can help more people and cost taxpayers less by starting to put some types of felons in supervised programs. Programs discussed include probation, parole, electronic monitoring, house arrest, day-treatment centers, bootcamps, restitution, and fines. With a balanced approach, this text reflects a strong emphasis on practical and legal matters related to alternatives to prison and jail.
