BJA FY 18 Innovations in Supervision Initiative: Building Capacity to Create Safer Communities

The Smart Supervision Program seeks to improve the capacity and effectiveness of community supervision agencies to increase probation and parole success rates and reduce the number of crimes committed by those under probation and parole supervision, which would in turn reduce admissions to prisons and

jails and save taxpayer dollars.

Funds will be awarded in two categories.

In Category 1, state and local agencies will be selected to improve supervision using evidence-based supervision strategies or to innovate new strategies to improve outcomes for supervisees.

For example, agencies may test supervision strategies with offenders at high risk of committing or being victimized by violence and may shift supervision strategies from time focused to goal focused and from mass supervision to focus on individualized supervision.

In Category 2, a TTA provider will work with three sites to develop a model for law enforcement and prosecutors to work with probation departments with regard to high risk, violent offenders.

The TTA provider will select three sites in concert with BJA and pass through funds to support their work.

Agency: Department of Justice
