Evaluating the Honest Opportunity Probation with Enforcement Demonstration Field Experiment (HOPE DFE) – Results and Reactions
This presentation discusses results from the four site Honest Opportunity Probation with Enforcement Demonstration Field Experiment (HOPE DFE) that was conducted by the Penn State Justice Center for Research in collaboration with RTI, International, funded by the National Institute of Justice and the Bureau of Justice Assistance. HOPE is a probation supervision strategy that involves the application of swift, certain and fair sanctioning in response to violations. HOPE had been originated in Hawaii in the mid-2000s and had spread rapidly throughout the U.S. since. Early evaluations of HOPE in Hawaii showed promising results, which have not been sustained in more recent evaluations, such as the current DFE and a similar evaluation conducted in Delaware. This forum will provide an overview of the DFGE results and discuss reactions to the DFE that touch upon the issue of advocacy in science.
