TCG Works on California Risk Assessment Pilot Project (CalRAPP)

The CalRAPP report (December 2015) notes: “The CalRAPP counties significantly reduced their combined probation failure rate (PFR) and sentenced a significantly lower proportion of felony probationers to prison and jail compared to jurisdictions in the rest of the state. Adults on felony probation in the pilot sites are being supervised effectively using graduated reward and sanction response grids to ensure that responses to offender behavior are consistent and evidence-based (i.e., swift, certain, and proportionate based on risk level and severity of behavior).
