THIS ISSUE IN BRIEF
The Influence of Social Distance on Community Corrections Officer Perceptions                                         2
of Offender Reentry Needs
Research suggests that offenders perceive officer-offender social distance as a potential barrier in the reentry process and, as a
result, offenders sometimes do not trust their community corrections officers. Using survey data from sample of state and
federal community corrections officers in Seattle, the authors examine the relationship between offender-officer social distance
and officer perception of offender post-release needs.
