  Annotation: Responding to the need to provide community-based intensive supervision programs (ISPs) to serious juvenile offenders, the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), funded Postadjudication Nonresidential Intensive Supervision Programs.
  Abstract: Project goals included identifying and assessing operational or effective intensive supervision programs, providing the capability to selected localities to implement effective programs for serious offenders, and disseminating program designs for the supervision of serious juvenile offenders. This manual outlines the elements of a good ISP and is organized around five key elements. The first, program context, encompasses philosophy and a theoretical framework for the program. Client identification involves identifying the target population and outlining selection procedures and criteria. Phases of the intensive strategy, the third key element, include residential or institutional placement, day treatment, outreach and tracking, regular supervision, and discharge and follow-up. Contextual and implementation issues relate to the external environment, program linkages, and internal linkages. The final element, goals and evaluations, consists of demonstration goals, a management information system, and process and outcome evaluation. 16 figures and 34 references
