Preliminary Validation of the Community Supervision Decision-Making Framework

Volume 86 Number 2
September 2022

This initial archival research examined the utility of a newly developed Community Supervision Decision Framework (Framework) to discriminate between individuals who violently reoffended while on supervision from those who did not. They conclude that results are encouraging and conclude that 1) replication with a larger sample that varies in risk profile is required; 2) a prospective application with a more fully detailed user manual would strengthen its implementation; and 3) Finally, the development of guidelines for officer responses to community supervision events would augment and standardize case management.
