These findings aim to examine how different enforcement strategies affect the reconviction rates of offenders under probation supervision in the community. The main purpose was to explore how reconviction rates vary amongst areas with different patterns of enforcement. For this purpose, data were gathered on 882 offenders drawn from eleven probation areas, five of which had harsher than average responses to non-compliance and six of which were more lenient than average. The findings also explored how reconviction rates vary between offenders exposed to different enforcement strategies.
