Probation and Parole Supervision

The Robina Institute conducts research in partnership with probation and parole agencies and community to assess how probation and parole supervision currently work—for example, how supervision conditions are set and enforced, how revocation decisions are made, how justice-involved individuals manage the requirements of supervision, and how community can support people on probation and parole.
