Probation and parole 2000
MetadataShow full item record
Community corrections will be a growth industry. From 1976 to 1996 the number of people in prison doubled, and the imprisonment rate per 100,000 adult population in Australia rose from 90 to 122 (up 34%). Probation and parole workers will be performing a valuable function for the state economy by keeping offenders out of prison. Their social work and human service skills will be tested to the full as they grapple with issues over which they have only a very small amount of control.
