ADULT SUPERVISION/ CORE
EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICES
The Probation Department is implementing a standardized evidence-based supervision model titled, Coordinated Optimal Rehabilitative Efforts (CORE). CORE was developed utilizing the Eight Evidence-Based Principles for Effective Interventions, as well as other key evidence-based outcomes as the foundational structure for this supervision model. The CORE model builds upon the model of the Alternative Treatment Caseload (ATC) Specialized Program, but will be restructured concurrent with implementation of CORE. INVEST Deputy Probation Officers supervise under the CORE model.
