As part of the Mass Probation and Health project, the Robina Institute led a survey of probation officers aimed at learning about probation officer attitudes and beliefs about the links between probation and health, and how they saw their role with regard to the health of people on probation.

The Examining Probation Officer Views on the Links Between Probation and Health report summarizes the survey findings and suggests potential policy interventions that could be implemented to improve the health and probation outcomes of people on probation.
