Perspectives on Probation and Pretrial Services (Part 2)

Federal Judicial Center Perspectives on Probation and Pretrial Services (Part 2) This fourth edition of Perspectives focuses on substance abuse cases, which now form a significant part of the workload of federal probation and pretrial services officers. In an interview, General Barry McCaffrey, director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, talks about the new National Drug Control Strategy and the impact it may have on officers' work. Gen. McCaffrey discusses the latest findings on the effectiveness of treatment and incarceration, and shares his views on the impact those findings should have on the supervision of drug-abusing offenders. Stories "on location" in San Antonio (W.D. Tex.) and Savannah (S.D. Ga.) explore innovative ways these districts have improved their handling of substance abuse cases. Updates from the Sentencing Commission and the latest information on legal and legislative issues from the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts are also featured.
