What do you think are some of the advantages and disadvantages of alternative sanctions?Alternative sanctions such as, probation, restitution, house arrest, electronic monitoring, and communityservice have a number of benefits and disadvantages for society. Probation is beneficial to the community by allowing the offender to be self-sufficient so that they are not dependent on the state governments. Additionally, probation officers provide an added benefit of protection to the community. However, not many probation officers have time tosupervise all of their cases and success rates drop dueto the lack of attention. Restitution is a cost effective way to punish offenders, as they are not sent to jail or prison, relying on the state for care. The victim is paid back for any losses acquired in the crime. House
