Faye Taxman, University Professor in the Department of Criminology, Law and Society, was interviewed by Len Sipes on the DC Public Safety Radio Show on the implementation of evidence-based practices in community corrections. Her interview covered the issues related to evidence-based practices in pretrial, probation and parole agencies and she discussed her book (with Steve Belenko), Implementation of Evidence-based Practices in Community Corrections and Addiction Treatment. The show runs throughout the U.S. and the audio is available via the link to the right.
Dr. Taxman is recognized for her work in the development of the seamless systems of care models that link the criminal justice with other service delivery systems as well as reengineering probation and parole supervision services, and organizational change models. Her work covers the breadth of the correctional system from jails and prisons to community corrections and adult and juvenile offenders, including all types of interventions and system improvement factors. She has had numerous grants from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institute of Justice, National Institute of Corrections, Office of National Drug Control Policy, and Bureau of Justice Assistance.
