Abstract: A TOTAL OF 9,105 PERSONS (8,277 ADULTS AND 828 JUVENILES) WERE REMOVED FROM PROBATION AND PAROLE CASELOADS DURING 1977. SUPERVISION WAS TERMINATED EITHER BECAUSE THE TERM OF PROBATION, PAROLE, OR AFTERCARE WAS SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED OR BECAUSE SUPERVISION WAS REVOKED FOR LAW OR RULES VIOLATIONS. A TOTAL OF 6,053 ADULT MALE PROBATIONERS AND 1,121 ADULT MALE PAROLEES WAS TERMINATED DURING 1977.
