Intermediate Sanctions in Corrections

Synopsis

"The field of corrections comprises three distinct areas of study: institutional corrections (jails and prisons), community corrections (probation and parole), and intermediate sanctions (community service, boot camps, intensive supervision programs, home confinement and electronic monitoring, halfway houses, day reporting, fines, and restitution). Intermediate Sanctions in Corrections, by Gail A. Caputo, presents a comprehensive, up-to-date examination of these systems and their individual programs. Intermediate Sanctions in Corrections goes beyond simply reviewing each intermediate sanction. It also demonstrates how these sanctions can be improved and used most efficiently so that jurisdictions can better address problems of prison crowding and offender recidivism. As federal, state, and local correctional systems struggle with burgeoning prison, probation, and parole caseloads, this book is a timely necessity. Aimed at students, scholars, and policymakers, Intermediate Sanctions in Corrections will be used in the many undergraduate criminal justice courses devoted to corrections. It will also be invaluable as a reader for graduate students." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
