Project

Drug Testing Throughout the Criminal Justice System Program: Probation and Parole Component
Contracting Agency: Bureau of Justice Assistance

This program expands upon the drug testing guidelines project for adult probation and parole agencies. Drug testing training curriculum was developed and administered to several regions of the country through the initial funding period. Short and long-term technical assistance was then provided to selected probation and parole agencies; a follow-up evaluation component was included to track results. This program was designed to assist state corrections divisions and local agencies with developing and implementing effective drug testing programs for offenders on probation and parole. The program incorporates offender management tools such as the need for additional sanctions or the imposition of user fees.
