Is Electronic Monitoring More Effective Than Community Service?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Between June 2000 and December 2002, 240 convicted subjects were randomly assigned to electronic monitoring (EM) or community service (CS) in the Canton of Vaud (Switzerland). In order to evaluate which group had more favourable outcomes, regarding re-offending and social integration, police files, criminal records and data from the Internal Revenue Service were used. The results show that three respectively four years later, re-convictions decrease in both groups, but even more so after EM. Data from the Internal Revenue Service show that financial circumstances and social integration were consistently less favourable following CS. At the same period and parallel to the controlled trial, two groups of offenders served EM or CS without random assignment. This quasi-experiment was followed by similar differences between EM and CS. The results will be discussed particularly in view of possible placebo effects related to controlled experiments.
