Annotation: This article traces briefly the implications of two administrative models for community-based corrections and argues for a risk control model with certain characteristics.
Abstract: The field of corrections generally, and community supervision in particular, badly need to articulate their goals and to adopt strategies and means of administration consistent with those goals. Based on a decade of work in field agencies, the article suggests specific means by which the risk model can be implemented in community supervision agencies so that discretion is appropriately controlled while the aims of the model are pursued.
