Probation And Parole Case Study

335 Words2 Pages
First thing I would like to implement is where I would recommend that all offenders placed on probation and parole would have a baseline drug test. Then those with a drug abuse problem or history would have mandatory substance abuse counseling. This is because approximately two thirds of probationers can be characterized as alcohol or drug involved offenders (Treatment, 2005). I believe that this would help to lower the recidivism rate because the offenders would no longer have negative habits that take away from their monthly finances. It would also take away the need to commit crimes to pay for their drug or alcohol habits. Second, I would recommend that there be some form of government funded employment opportunities for parolees.
