Serving Time or Serving the Community? : Exploiting a Policy Reform to Assess the Causal Effects of Community Service on Income, Social Benefit Dependency & Recidivism Paperback

Description

There is a widespread belief among criminologists, judges and the like that criminals are better off serving non-custodial sentences instead of going to prison.

However, empirical evidence of the effects of community service is scarce.

This paper exploits a policy reform that implemented the use of community service as punishment among specific groups of criminals in order to assess the causal effect of community service on post-sentence income, dependency on social benefits, and crime.
