Probation and Parole Case Study 1

In chapter 1, we discussed the importance of garnering public support for alternatives to prison. Assume you
are a staff member who works for a state legislator and you have been assigned to examine organizations and
interest groups affiliated with community-based corrections such as the American Probation and Parole
Association (APPA). Report back to the legislator the APPA’s position on other topics. Find other interest
groups that advocate the expansion of various community-based alternatives.
