Community Sanctions Evaluation Project: Final Report
| Cataloged on:
Oct. 31, 2006
ANNOTATION: Developed to measure the cost/benefit of applying community sanctions to a specific group of parolees in danger of having their parole revoked, this project required the accomplishment of two goals:
1) Design, test, and document the utility of using spreadsheet technology to evaluate the cost/benefit of alternative community sanctions.
2) Evaluate the cost/benefit of enhanced alternatives proposed by the U.S. Parole Commission in supervising parolees with special drug and alcohol restrictions.
Results indicate that there was significant dollar savings gained and prison bed space saved by placing parolees into community corrections.
