Abstract and Keywords

This article serves as a comprehensive review about community-based correctional supervision, which is a subfield of corrections where offenders are supervised and given services outside prison and jail. It surveys topics that are usually ignored and misunderstood, and then studies the history, supervision conditions, programs, and recidivism rates of persons on probation and other intermediate sanctions. The next section identifies a set of central principles that can reduce recidivism, provided that they are correctly implemented.

Keywords: correctional supervision, recidivism rates, probation, intermediate sanctions
