This project is a three-site evaluation of variations in caseload size and the use of evidence-based supervision practices on recidivism rates for medium and high-risk probationers. Specifically, the project will address four questions: (1) the impact of caseload size on recidivism; (2) the effects of the characteristics of the quantity and quality of supervision on offender outcomes; (3) the effects of probation officer training and other characteristics on offender outcomes; and, (4) the cost-effectiveness of variations in caseload size and the use of evidence-based supervision practices.
