Peter Kinsinger, International Community Corrections Assn.

ABSTRACT
The International Communicyt Corrections Association (ICCA) has taken the lead among professional associations in bringing scholarly research to practitioners. The experiences of ICCA in advancing their evidence-based approach to risk management and public safety will be presented. The ICCA experience reveals that there is significant interest among practitioners, including legislators and policymakers, to develop state-of--the-art practices and thereby affirm their value in the public arena.
