Many experts have focused on specifically defining the meaning of probation, identifying the practice as a legal disposition, a punishment, an administrative process, a treatment alternative, or even as a measure of leniency. Many would argue that the field of adult probation has been plagued by an unclear statement of purpose. The belief that the goals of probation often conflict has been frequently reported in the literature. The author of this article drew upon his experience as an adult probation officer, coupled with interviews of probation staff & administrators & an extensive review of the literature on adult probation, to construct a questionnaire which reflected common practices of enforcement & rehabilitation in probation work. In addition, probation professionals were asked a series of questions focusing on the orientation of probation staff, co-workers, supervisors, management, & judges toward offenders. They were also asked to identify the overall orientation of the probation system in their respective states. A total of 512 questionnaires were returned & found usable for analysis (a return rate of 72%). Tables.
