Nebraska State Probation’s Community Safety Impact Model is part of a strategic plan towards excellence and safe communities by delivering a system of seamless services founded on evidence-based research and valued by the public, victims, offenders and courts.
Probation’s Community Safety Impact Model encompasses a public safety approach to case management. Adult Offenders and Juveniles are prioritized for supervision and treatment services according to their risk of re-offending.
Community-Based Intervention (CBI) is a supervision approach specifically designed for offenders/juveniles who are at a high to high-moderate risk of re-offending. It combines intensive supervision and treatment resources to maximize community safety and reduce the potential for recidivism.
Community-Based Resource (CBR) is a supervision approach specifically designed for offenders/ juveniles who are at a moderate to low risk of re-offending. Community Supervision is most successful when it combines an equivalent level of supervision and community based services.
Specialized Offender Populations
We recognize there are specific offender/juvenile populations that require additional and unique approaches to community supervision. Within the Community-Based Intervention and Resource strategies, we have adopted additional principles and practices found in the research of “what works” in the field of Community Corrections specifically geared toward the following offender groups:
Adult and Juvenile: Juvenile Specific:
Substance Abuser Truancy
Disengaged Offender Ungovernable
Sex Offender Gang
Drug & Alcohol Abuse
Repeat Drunk Driver
Domestic Violence Offender:
Based on research available, the approach for this offender population includes a three pronged focus on offender accountability, victim safety, and community collaboration. Officers will work to hold offenders accountable through an intensive supervision approach that uses detailed case planning, graduated sanctions and cognitive based behavior modeling. This supervision will also include regular victim contacts, as well as collaboration with both victim and offender service providers in the community.
While this is a very small population of offenders overall, this group of offenders is at risk for recidivism if no intervention is implemented. As with domestic violence offenders, sex offenders will also receive an intensive level of supervision that will include direct responses to law violating behaviors of any kind, detailed case planning, and a sex offense specific cognitive behavioral treatment approach. Through a combination of treatment, victim contact, and supervision, research shows a definite decrease in recidivism.
