Does specialty mental health probation “fight crime and save money?” A cost-benefit analysis

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



Abstract:

Growing evidence suggests that specialty probation can achieve its chief policy goal for offenders with mental illness—recidivism reduction. However, it is unclear whether this program’s positive criminal justice outcomes offset its considerable service costs. Particularly in lean economic periods, cost effectiveness can wholly determine whether policymakers decide to adopt a new program or preserve an existing one. Based on a matched sample of 359 offenders with mental illness, we analyze the cost effectiveness of specialty probation. Preliminary results suggest that specialty supervision involves greater expenditures on psychiatric treatment and probation services, but also minimizes costs associated with recidivism.
