journal contributionposted on 01.03.2006, 17:37 authored by Ian Hearnden, Andrew Millie
It is increasingly argued that vigorous enforcement improves probation outcomes and reduces reconviction rates. Based on a recent study of the link between enforcement and reconviction rates, this article argues that vigorous enforcement is not necessarily synonymous with effective enforcement. It also contends that ensuring compliance is at least as important as adherence to National Standards.
