Abstract: The book focused on measurable indexes of individual adjustment to various forms of community supervision, not only for the offender but also for family members affected by the sentence. Offenders’ positive integration with their communities is the most significant factor in keeping them out of the criminal justice system in the future. To the extent that electronically monitored house arrest can increase the chances of that integration, it will be successful. The book’s 10 chapters examine the historical development of probation; recent developments and expansions in probation services; correctional perspectives and issues in electronic monitoring; electronic monitoring as an alternative sentence; basis, methods, and roles for correctional case management; use of electronic monitoring in three selected probation and parole departments; analysis of the data on the effects of electronically monitored home confinement on offenders and their home environments; and critical issues in the future for electronic monitoring programs.
