Discussion

  • Drawing from everything you have learned, explain whether probation and parole will be used more or less often in the future, and why.
  • Next, describe what you believe the future of community supervision¬†should¬†entail. For example: Should probation and parole be used more or less? Should other alternatives be considered for some offender populations?
  • What role should research play in determining which community supervision practices are continued and which ones are eliminated?
