Csaoalogo Supervision of High-Risk Offenders
02/22/2012 ET
The topic for the twentieth television show produced by the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency is “Supervision of High Risk Offenders”.



There is extensive research that parole and probation agencies should focus their efforts on offenders who pose an obvious risk to public safety. CSOSA embarked on two reorganizations in 2011, one focusing on women offenders (TV show filmed on February 16, 2011) and the other on high risk offenders; the focus of this production.

Multiple national research centers, such as The Urban Institute, Pew, and the US Department of Justice, suggest that parole and probation agencies focus their supervision and treatment resources on high risk offenders, as identified through objective, validated risk and needs instruments, while placing less emphasis on lower risk offenders through alternative methods of supervision.

The program intends to provide an overview of CSOSA high risk offender supervision and treatment efforts based on national best practice standards.
