Probation Caseload Study

Probation Caseload Study

A Multi-Jurisdictional Study of Reduced Caseload and Related Supervision Strategies in Managing Offenders on Probation

CJI partnered with Abt Associates and Justice Systems Assessment and Training (J-SAT) for a study to measure the impact of caseload size and the implementation of evidence-based probation interventions on offender recidivism. CJI was responsible for:

  • Assessing and recruiting sites, including determining their data collection and management capacity;
  • Overseeing the sites throughout the study, including training staff on data collection and troubleshooting data collection and reporting; and
  • Disseminating the results of the study, including producing reports and presentations in formats appropriate to various stakeholder groups.
