Description

Take a look inside the real world of probation and parole.



Featuring a front-line practitioner's insights based on the author's extensive experience as a senior New York State parole officer, this text exposes students to the complex, "real" world of probation and parole. Comprehensive in approach, it explores the cutting-edge of both practice and theory with regard to all aspects of adult and juvenile probation, institutions, and parole.



"The text is well written, is easy to read and contains pertinent information. We have used this text exclusively since the second edition and do not have any intention at this point to adopt a different text."

Jon Cella, Central Texas College
