The Living Laboratory Studies: Providing Insights into Community Supervision Practices

Volume 82 Number 1
June 2018

Researchers at Public Safety Canada conducted a Living Laboratory study (that is, a study of a probation agency that would pilot new corrections initiatives on a small scale) before rolling out STICS, their evidence-based community supervision program. The authors describe the study, which tracked activities and time spent supervising clients of 21 probation officers over 90 days, and discuss the results.
