Senate Bill 678

The California Community Corrections Intensive Probation Services Act of 2009 funds probation departments to reduce the number of adult probationers revoked from probation and sentenced to prison.

SANDAG conducted a process and impact evaluation of the San Diego County Probation Department’s efforts to increase the use of evidence-based practices in its supervision of offenders under high-risk supervision. As part of this evaluation, the use of incentives and sanctions was documented, and service delivery and recidivism rates was tracked for three years.

Outcome measures were tracked for offenders in a baseline period, compared to two years after implementation, and a cost-analysis also was included. 

Annual reports describing evaluation methodologies and preliminary outcomes can be accessed below.
