Project

Training & Technical Assistance for Expanding & Improving Community Corrections
Contracting Agency: Bureau of Justice Assistance

This project was designed to assist local and state jurisdictions to enhance or expand correctional options. This was accomplished by providing agency-specific training and technical assistance in the following areas: community involvement; intervening in family and domestic violence; coordinated interagency drug treatment; drug testing; intensive supervision programs; field officer safety; performance-based measurements; and restitution and economic sanctions. Additional technical assistance was provided for enhancing options with community justice and a monograph of promising practices in community justice was published (i.e., Community Justice: Concepts and Strategies).
