dc.description.abstractIn the 5 years from 1993-4 to 1998-9 the Community Corrections population has risen by 28% (from 15,147 to 19,390 - daily average) while at the same time the prison population has risen by 123% (from 2259 to 5044 - daily average). Unlike prison which is a punishment exacted against freedom of movement and association or a fine punishment exacted against money, a community sentence is a punishment exacted against time and energy, but also has potential for enormous positives. Community Corrections is a growth business which is under great community and political pressure, and operates within a context of social change; it can help the State's economy; it is a risk management exercise with very high stakes, and involves significant professional challenges for practitioners.en_US
