A new policy framework from The Pew Charitable Trusts outlines policies that state officials can implement to reshape probation and parole into a tool that reduces incarceration instead of driving it.
Pew, in partnership with Arnold Ventures, established an Advisory Council on Community Supervision to develop a policy framework for state legislators, court officers, and community corrections personnel. Their recommendations are broken down into seven broad objectives:
- Enact alternatives to arrest, incarceration, and supervision.
- Implement evidence-based policies centered on risks and needs.
- Adopt shorter supervision sentences and focus on goals and incentives.
- Establish effective and appropriate supervision conditions.
- Develop individualized conditions for payment of legal financial obligations.
- Reduce use of and pathways to incarceration.
- Support community supervision agencies.
