Abstract: The author highlights the limitations of this new wave of intermediate sanction programs and then discusses the importance of community context (i.e., community attitudes, tolerance, support, and structure) to the development of effective adult supervision strategies. The author concludes by describing the four key characteristics of a community-oriented approach to probation and parole supervision: 1) service brokerage, 2) advocacy for offenders and victims, 3) triage, and 4) location in the community. 62 references, 3 figures.
