Advancing Community Supervision Strategies: Online Resources

The ongoing work of community supervision is dynamic based on the trends and changes occurring in the world we live in. Adjusting to an ever-changing political climate and other factors beyond our control makes the sharing of information and communications more important now than ever before. The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) has served as a resource for many years through training, information sharing, and networks available to the field. NIC is committed to providing assistance to all community supervision agencies no matter the size.

Community supervision agencies must rely on the most recent evidence-based programs, promising practices, and emerging approaches to further their work. NIC is invested in promoting equally important topic areas that target human-resource-related technical skills and staff training, hiring requirements and practices, equipment for officers, and topic areas supported by research and evaluation. Topics covered range from current practice methods to new and innovative approaches.

As such, NIC has created a new site that covers topic areas such as technology and equipment, interpersonal skills, research and resources, staff, and supervision models for the community supervision field. Please visit to access these resources and learn more.
