Use of Incentives and Sanctions to Promote Compliance with Supervision Conditions during Reentry: An Implementation Strategy

May 14, 2013

Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center

This webinar focussed on the use of incentives and sanctions with individuals under community supervision, particularly those returning to their communities from prison. It included an overview of current practices, policy, and research that promote compliance among individuals under community supervision. It will conclude with a discussion of key components of an effective implementation strategy for both research and practice. This webinar was particularly informative to probation and parole officers who work directly with these individuals, as well as to field supervisors and other community corrections administrators.
