Course on Probation, Parole and Community Corrections (JUST A445) explores supervision of offenders in the community

Probation, Parole and Community Corrections (JUST A445) flyer
Community corrections programs oversee offenders outside of jail or prison, and are administered by agencies or courts with the legal authority to enforce sanctions. Community corrections includes probation — correctional supervision within the community rather than jail or prison — and parole — a period of conditional, supervised release from prison.

Probation, Parole and Community Corrections (JUST A445) will examine how the system of probation and parole developed, practices and methods of supervision of probationers and parolees, and programs for the reentry and reintegration of offenders into the community.

This Spring 2019 elective will be held Mondays and Wednesdays from 1:00 to 2:15 PM.
