N.ö klassikalise kriminoloogia valdkonna tekste on siin voos kuidagi väheseks jäänud, kuid see ei ole ometi probleem. Nüüd on aga hea jagada üht teksti, mis tegeleb nii kogukonna, valitsemise kui kuritegeliku käitumisega. Siinviidatu leidiski oma koha peamiselt põhjusel, et näitab sotsiaalteadustes ja siin voos palju tähelepanu saanud komplekssete ja nurjatute probleemidega tegelemisel. Tõsi, probleemide sellisel analüüsitasemel esitamisega siin tegemist ei ole. Küll aga leiab siit kasulikku see, kes otsib lahendusi või leevendusi keerukatele turvalisusprobleemidele, aga ka see, kes rõhutab töötaja vastutust ja alahindab organisatsioonilist konteksti.

Kontekstist:

Evidence-based supervision is promoted by correctional agencies to achieve better supervision outcomes (e.g., reduced recidivism) and deliver a fairer, more just probation/parole process. The evidence-based supervision movement is deeply embedded in a “what works” philosophy […] Collectively, components of each supervision approach are embedded in evidence-based supervision to better manage individuals in the community while holding them accountable for the requirements assigned by the parole board and/or judiciary, probation or parole agency, treatment agencies, and/or specialized courts (Taxman, 2008).

Kaks eesmärki:

The primary aim is to identify which EBPs are more important to implement to reduce recidivism. A secondary aim is to identify which of these practices are compatible with the attitudes of officers primarily responsible for supervision strategies.

Järelvalvaja töö on väga avar:

probation officers handle everything from screening to termination (positive or negative) merging the RNR principles and other strategies to support individuals on supervision.

Lugemisisu suurendamiseks:

While no single evidence-based supervision component (e.g., validated RNA tool, case planning, treatment, compliance management, contacts, employment) can achieve recidivism reductions, this study identified that certain supervision frameworks are most effective. […] this study suggests that it is not just what the officers do that matters and that the agency context matters.
