Untapped Resources: What Veteran Services Officers Can Provide for Probation and Parole

Volume 79 Number 1
June 2015

Recent data suggest that 9 percent of inmates are military veterans (there is no comparable data for those under community corrections). A multitude of benefits and community resources supportive of rehabilitation, treatment efforts, and analogous life skills are available to probationers and parolees with prior military service. The authors describe how veteran services officers can assist justice-involved veterans and the probation and parole officers who supervise them.
