A Comprehensive Approach to Supervision in the Southern District of West Virginia

Volume 63 Number 1
June 1999

The author tells how the probation staff in the Southern District of West Virginia developed a comprehensive approach to supervising offenders. The approach focused on five goals: reducing the percentage of unemployed offenders, reducing the percentage of offenders receiving public assistance benefits, reducing violations filed with the court, increasing the collection percentage of court-ordered financial obligations, and increasing the percentage of offenders with at least a GED diploma.
