This best-selling text focuses on forms of correctional punishments and treatment programs that are based in the community for convicted offenders. Although some offenders need to be incarcerated in prison for public safety reasons, this text argues that the vast majority of offenders can be effectively supervised in the community using a wide array of programs that meet the level of risk and needs that each individual poses. Programs that are 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. This Sixth Edition features a new five-part organization, a line-by-line update, a new citation style (APA), and a wide array of ancillaries.
