Abstract: A large body of research exists that examines the prevalence of drinking and drug use among college students. This research consistently finds that these behaviors are problematic and common among this population. Additionally, these behaviors can lead to further problems in a student’s academic and personal life. The current research utilizes several years of student conduct data to explore trends in violations, demographics of offenders, and the types of sanctions used to address violations. The potential effectiveness of different sanctions and the overall trends in student drug and alcohol violations will be discussed along with potential implications for policy and future program implementation for colleges and universities.

Abstract: An ongoing debate within the field of criminal justice is whether criminal justice officials should be allowed or encouraged to exercise their personal discretion in dealing with an accused offender who violates the terms of release. In 2003, the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA) members were surveyed to discover variations in decision making among community corrections officers. Survey respondents, all of whom were either line level officers or middle managers, were presented scenarios and questions in which they were asked if they would initiate formal action against a violator. This paper discusses the results of the survey and examines background factors (such as gender, ethnicity, years of experience, geographic location and other factors) that contribute to the decision as to whether to initiate formal proceedings.

Abstract: In recent years, the State of New York has been moving in the direction of evidence-based practices in sentencing and corrections. In 2004, New York was one of eight states selected to participate in the National Institute of Corrections’ Transition from Prison to the Community Initiative (TPC), which provided the opportunity to develop re-entry programming that conforms to national best practices. More recently, the New York State Division of Parole has shown interest in applying evidence-based practices to their system, and more specifically, in the area of graduated sanctions for parole violators. At their request, the Vera Institute of Justice conducted a study of parole violators to help inform the development of such a system in New York. Vera researchers conducted quantitative and qualitative analysis to answer four main research questions: 1) what are the risk factors for different types of parole violations; 2) what are the main influences on the type of sanctions parole violators receive; 3) how can violations be prevented; and 4) for whom are graduated sanctions appropriate? These questions were addressed through logistic and survival analysis of administrative parole data, as well as qualitative interviews with parolees and parole officers. This presentation will highlight the main findings with respect to these four questions, along with the policy recommendations and the subsequent steps taken by parole toward the development of graduated sanctions.
