Community Supervision Resource Center

Funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Community Supervision Resource Center (CSRC) serves pretrial, probation, and parole supervision agencies and helps them to align their operations with best and evidence-based practices. The CSRC supports state, local, and tribal jurisdictions and agencies in implementing supervision policies, programs, and practices that promote successful outcomes and ensure public safety.

The community supervision field has made advances over the last several decades. For example, core evidence-based practices, based on risk-need responsivity, are widely implemented by supervision agencies. However, agencies need more support to continue to improve outcomes for the people served and their communities.

Through centralizing critical resources, offering trainings, and providing technical assistance, the CSRC will strengthen agency practices and build a network of practitioners committed to pursuing innovative and best practices.


The CSRC is managed by the Center for Effective Public Policy (CEPP) in partnership with the American Probation and Parole Association, the Association of Paroling Authorities International, the Center for Justice Innovation, and the National Association of Pretrial Services Agencies.
