Series/Report no.:Institute for Excellence in Justice. Seminars
In the late 1990s, prompted by the discontent of elected leaders and the general public, the Maryland Division of Parole and Probation sought to reinvent community supervision in order to better protect public safety; hold supervisees accountable to victims and the community; and help supervisees to become productive and responsible. This undertaking led the Division to make a commitment to implement supervision strategies and management practices based on research, to examine performance, to develop a learning culture, to adopt innovative techniques informed by science, and to embrace change. Judith Sachwald, who recently retired after serving for 7-1/2 years as Maryland’s Director of Parole and Probation, will discuss their journey including the detours and flat tires encountered in route to better results.
