The National Reentry Resource Center is sponsoring a webinar on the supervision of parolees in the community titled "Neighborhood-Based Supervision: A Review of Promising Practices".
The practice of neighborhood-based supervision allows parole officers to
interact closely with parolees within their social environment, as well
as with community organizations and residents, providing them with
insight into the parolees’ susceptibility to negative influences in the
neighborhood. This webinar will provide an overview of the research and
current practices of neighborhood-based supervision during the
post-release stage of reentry. This webinar will be particularly
informative to parole officers in the field who work directly with
parolees, field supervisors, community corrections administrators, other
justice system personnel, and those working for community organizations
with an interest in enhancing successful offender reentry strategies
