Implementing Specialized Caseloads to Reduce Recidivism for People with Co-Occurring Disorders

Probation departments have used specialized caseloads for years as a way to tailor supervision and better address the specific needs of people at a high risk to reoffend or who belong to certain populations. With these focused caseloads, officers are able to dedicate more time and attention to their cases while also applying targeted supervision and treatment strategies designed to reduce recidivism among their clients.
