Currently, there appears to be a significant need for further scientific study of the effectiveness of various types of community offenders. Although issues regarding the provision of monitoring and supervision services in order to protect society as a whole are important, scientific evaluation of needed programs and how those services are administered is also imperative. Preventive services that could be delivered within the community as a diversionary strategy for adult offenders could prove to be promising.
