Utilizing Swift and Certain Sanctions in Probation: Final Results from Delaware’s Decide Your Time Program.

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



Abstract:

The recent success of Hawaii’s Opportunity Probation with Enforcement (HOPE) has generated a wealth of new research as well as new programs using the principles of HOPE across the country. These programs utilize deterrence theory’s swift and certain principles, as opposed to focusing on severity, in order to affect change in community corrections clients. Most programs are built around a judge who oversees the process and determines sanctions. Delaware’s Decide Your Time program attempts to implement HOPE principles in standard probation without involving a judge. This presentation reports on the final outcomes from an evaluation that randomly placed 400 substance using probationers into either Decide Your Time or standard intensive supervision. Data on urine screens, missed appointments, probation failure, rearrests and incarceration were tracked for a minimum of 6 months post program. Results based on effect sizes and regression models were mixed, and not as pronounced as other evaluations. Outcomes, implementation issues, and recommendations will be discussed. This research was supported by Grant Number: 2009-IJ-CX-0003 from the National Institute of Justice.
