Edward J. Latessa is Professor and Director of the School of Criminal Justice at the University of Cincinnati. He received his PhD from Ohio State University in 1979 and was a student of Harry E. Allen. Dr. Latessa has published over 170 works in the area of criminal justice, corrections, and juvenile justice. He is co-author of eight books, including What Works (and Doesn't) in Reducing Recidivism, Corrections in the Community, and Corrections in America. He has directed more than 195 funded research projects, including studies of day reporting centers, juvenile justice programs, drug courts, prison programs, intensive supervision programs, halfway houses, and drug programs. Latessa and his staff have also assessed over 1,000 correctional programs throughout the United States, and he has provided assistance and workshops in 48 states. Latessa served as President of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (1989-90). He has also received several awards including the Ernest Talbert House Award (2018); the Lifetime Achievement Award from Rite of Passage (2018); the William T.

In 2013 Latessa was identified as one of the most innovative people in criminal justice by a national survey conducted by the Center for Court Innovation in partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance and the U.S. Department of Justice. Brian Lovins is a Research Fellow for the University of Cincinnati's School of Criminal Justice as well as the Assistant Director for Harris County Community Supervision and Corrections Department. He earned his PhD in Criminology from the University of Cincinnati, School of Criminal Justice. Dr. Lovins has published over 20 peer reviewed articles and book chapters in the area of corrections, risk assessment, and juvenile justice. In addition to his work in Harris County, he is currently the Co-Editor for the American Probation and Parole Association's (APPA) Perspectives journal. He has contributed to the national discourse with his work in developing a non-proprietary juvenile risk assessment (Ohio Youth Assessment System: OYAS) and adult risk assessment (Ohio Risk Assessment System: ORAS), as well as redesigning juvenile and adult correctional programs to meet evidence-based standards. Lovins routinely assists community corrections agencies in developing and implementing risk assessment and the delivery of cognitive-behavioral interventions. Lovins has received the Dr. Simon Dinitz Award from The Ohio Justice Alliance for Community Corrections for his work and dedication in helping correctional agencies adopt evidence-based programs, as well as the Distinguished Alumnus Award from the University of Cincinnati.

Reviews

Criminal justice students are often taught very little about community corrections, even though 7 of 10 individuals under correctional supervision in the U.S. are on probation or parole. Latessa and Lovins have written an informative, current text about pretrial, probation, and parole that includes the latest evidence-based approaches. This is a valuable addition to the academic library and will help prepare the next generation of practitioners. Barbara Broderick, Chief Maricopa County Adult Probation With the latest edition of Corrections in the Community, Latessa and Lovins have created a comprehensive, highly engaging, and up-to-date book that will easily and effectively guide the reader through America's largest and perhaps most often misunderstood correctional system. Students will gain a thorough understanding of the history and development of the community correctional system, while also learning about the most recent issues that continue to shape and challenge the profession. Alexander M. Holsinger, Ph.D. Criminal Justice Coordinator for Johnson County, Kansas With the aim of providing a comprehensive review, the authors move beyond the basic concepts of probation and parole to a rich understanding of community corrections. The text stands out for its excellent review of the evidence-based approaches that lead to more effective policies and practices. Corrections in the Community is an essential reading for students and professionals alike. Shelley Johnson Listwan, University of North Carolina Charlotte
