Multicultural Competencies in Probation: Issues and Challenges                                                          3
The vast numbers of persons currently being supervised under probation sentences are a diverse group who exhibit a wide variety of
treatment and supervision concerns that probation officers are expected to address. The questions and issues addressed in this article
speak directly to the role of multicultural competencies in probation as officers supervise this diverse group of offenders.

Interagency Priorities at the Crossroads: Aftercare Among Drug Users                                                  10
Three-quarters of the inmates housed in state and federal prison in 1997 could be categorized as alcohol- or drug-involved, yet only
about 20 percent of those within six months of release report having received treatment. The recent focus on reentry draws attention to
the issue of treatment after release from prison and the more general topic of collaboration between various criminal justice agencies
in addressing reentry requirements.

Electronic Monitoring of Domestic Violence Cases: A Study of Two Bilateral Programs                                   1 5
The criminal justice system has been using electronic monitoring for about 20 years, typically as a form of house arrest, an alternative
sanction, or in the context of pretrial release. The authors examine the use of EM for victim protection in domestic violence cases.

The Imposition of Economic Sanctions in Philadelphia: Costs, Fines, and Restitution                                   2 1
The author examines fines, costs, and restitution in Philadelphia during the seven-year period 1994-2000, looking at breakdowns of
crimes and distinguishing those in which private individuals and businesses were the victims from those in which the State was the
victim. He also tracks relationships among the awarding of the different kinds of economic sanctions.

Private and Public Sector Prisons: A Comparison of Select Characteristics                                             27
This study compares the private and public prison sectors on a number of characteristics, including correctional officer wages and
retention rates, staff-to-inmate ratios, frequency of institutional violence, etc. Findings are used to place the sectors upon an ideological
continuum showing the degree to which each subscribes to the correctional philosophies of eligibility and normalization.

victims, their advocates and victim service providers. The authors discuss the theory and reality of restorative justice, including
difficulties in implementation and features of good practice.

In Cold Blood Revisited: A Look Back at an American Crime                                                             39
In November 1959, four members of the Clutter family were murdered in their home in Holcomb, Kansas-the result of a planned
burglary by two parolees. The crime, which became the subject of Truman Capote's best-selling non-fiction novel In Cold Blood, was
widely considered to mark a watershed in the national perception of American violence.

High Anxiety Offenders in Correctional Settings: It's Time for Another Look                                           43
The authors accumulate evidence across four studies that find neurotic offenders of particular interest to correctional practitioners
and policy makers because of these offenders' poor adjustment to prison, high recidivism rates, and poor performance in cognitive
skills intervention.
