The Probationer's Perspective on the Probation Officer-Probationer Relationship and Satisfaction with Probation

Volume 76 Number 1
June 2012

The primary purpose of this study was to examine the association between probationers' perceptions of their relationship with their PO and their sense of the overall helpfulness of probation. In addition, the authors examined whether probationers' perceptions of this relationship varied by demographic characteristics or probation characteristics and ascertained the general satisfaction level of the probrationers.
