More discussion of community corrections practices in other countries, more coverage applying theory, and more on the use of technology in community corrections sets this book apart from competitors.
Additionally, the treatment orientation and the substantive coverage of special needs offenders helps students understand the increasing need for community supervision officers to be well-versed in treatment based approaches and special offender typologies (i.e. sex offenders, mentally ill offenders, offenders with communicable diseases, drug offenders, and so forth).
