Annotation: This article is a progress report on the first year of operation of New Jersey's Intensive Supervision Program (ISP).
Abstract: The program design includes, among other components, very selective screening of applicants and multiple contacts with each offender every week. Results of a survey of judges, prosecutors, and public defenders on ISP are outlined. A summative evaluation would be premature at this time because only a handful of the 220 offenders admitted thus far into ISP have completed a full year in the program. However, preliminary indications of program accomplishments, including employment and rates of recidivism, are very promising. (Author abstract)
