Introduction This unit will cover the theories behind probation and parole. These theories are those that relate to crime and, therefore, are called criminological theories. These are necessary because the goals of probation and parole are to protect the community and rehabilitate the offender (Abadinsky, 2018). Before we can protect the community and rehabilitate the offender, we must first understand why an individual does or does not commit crime. As we begin this unit, can you think of some reasons why an individual might not burglarize a residence? What about a reason an individual might steal a car? Probation and Parole Theories It is important to first identify the definition of theory before beginning a discussion of the actual theories. A theory is something that explains a concept. For our purposes, a criminological theory is one that explains why crime does or does not occur. This unit will focus on specific theories as we attempt to learn about the motivations of offenders that will inform policy and procedure for their rehabilitation and release back into the UNIT III STUDY GUIDE Probation and Parole Theories BCJ 3150, Probation and Parole 2 UNIT x STUDY GUIDE Title community. It is important to remember that one specific theory does not explain all crime. There is not a onestop shop. Instead, a specific theory may explain a portion of crime.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
