EBP Integrated Model

Implementing Effective Correctional Management of Offenders in the Community: An Integrated Model

A Project of the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) in partnership with the Crime and Justice Institute at CRJ

The Vision: To build learning organizations that reduce recidivism through systemic integration of evidence-based principles in collaboration with community and justice partners.

Through this cooperative agreement established in the fall of 2002, National Institute of Corrections (NIC) joined with CJI to assist two pilot states (Illinois and Maine) in applying an integrated approach to the implementation of evidence-based principles in community corrections. The project model maintains an equal and integrated focus on three domains: the implementation of evidence-based principles, organizational development, and collaboration. The technical assistance period in the original pilot site ended in September 2007. After an open application period, two sites were chosen for the next round of technical assistance, implementing a more-intense, shorter version of the Integrated Model -- the immersion model. The two immersion model sites are the Maricopa County (AZ) Adult Probation Department and the Orange County Probation Department. These sites participated from 2007 through 2009.

The project’s Integrated Model is based on the premise that successful implementation of evidence-based principles in community corrections can only be achieved when integrated with corresponding organizational development and collaboration. The project is designed to provide a series of needs assessment-based interventions focused on these three components; implementation of these components using an integrated model will assist jurisdictions to better reduce recidivism and increase public safety.

Stakeholder EBP Box Set Papers
The Box Set is a series of eight whitepapers on the implementation of evidence-based practices (EBP). The papers are designed to share information with criminal justice system stakeholders about how the implementation of evidence-based practices and a focus on recidivism reduction affect their areas of expertise in community corrections, defense, jail, judiciary, pretrial services, prison, prosecution, and treatment.

To read any of the papers, please visit the Box Set webpage
