New Analysis Shows How Parole and Probation Violations Significantly Impact States’ Prison Populations and Budgets

New data reveals the startling extent to which probation and parole violations contribute to states’ high prison admissions and populations, as well as the subsequent cost to taxpayers.
In 2018, the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA) and the National Reentry Resource Center partnered to better understand challenges facing the community supervision workforce and identify ways to address them. APPA spoke with community supervision leaders from 15 states in interviews that focused on front-line staff recruitment, training, retention, and performance evaluation. This brief summarizes APPA’s findings and presents promising practices from the field.
