APPA’s C.A.R.E. Model: A Framework for Collaboration, Analysis, Reentry, and Evaluation: A Response to Street Gang Violence

Publication year: 2012
Thumbnail preview This publication presents the C.A.R.E. model developed by the American Probation and Parole Associations (APPA) that explains how community corrections can be involved in anti-gang initiatives. It uses evidence-based practices (data-driven strategies) to back up the use of certain policies and procedures. Each chapter provides an “overview of each component, obstacles, and recommendations for implementation … [and] begins with a clear policy-practice statement summarizing the chapter’s purpose. An overview describes the specific component, what it involves, and the obstacles practitioners are likely to confront. The chapter concludes with a brief list of recommendations” (p. 8). These chapters follow an executive summary: collaborations—working together to stop violence; analyze—who, what, when, and where; reentry—responding to the needs of offenders; and evaluation—determining cause and effect.
