Advancing Community Supervision Strategies

A green sphere made of dots the space between the dots is transparent so the inside of the sphere can be seen

The ongoing work of community corrections is dynamic based on the trends and changes occurring in the world we live in. Adjusting to issues, political changes, and other factors beyond our control makes the importance of sharing information and communications more important now than ever before. NIC has served as the clearinghouse for many initiatives through training, information sharing and networks available to the field. Involvement in professional organizations also allows for information sharing, training, and publications, however, there is not a formal mechanism in place to share information or a repository to store and highlight experiences in a broad sense to cover numerous topics and information needed by the field.

Agencies providing community supervision must rely on the most recent evidence-based programs, promising practices, and emerging approaches to further their work. NIC is invested in promoting equally important topic areas included in this microsite that target human-resource-related technical skills and staff training, hiring requirements and practices, equipment for officers, and topic areas supported by research and evaluation. Topics are covered from current practice methods to new and innovative practices.

This microsite contains information and resources for advancing community supervision strategies. Each topic area provides a discussion of how it applies to supervision, samples of policy and protocols, along with stories and testimonials from the field with lessons learned, and research reports on various topics.

NIC does not endorse nor recommend any of the products or topics discussed on this site, rather the intent of this microsite is to provide comprehensive information that will assist you in making more informed decisions regarding the use and implementation of technology, programs, and practices.

Please contact us if you have additional information that you believe would benefit others in the field on specific topics and it will be considered for inclusion. This database is not an exhaustive listing, and we encourage visitors to help us keep the site active by submitting new programs.
