Abstract: THERE are many reasons why research on probation is needed. There is no precise and systematic information about the different treatment needs of probationers, about variations in the treatment which is given, or about the relation between different offenders and the kind of probation treatment that is best for them. Further information is needed about the probability of reconviction of different offenders, and the possible use of other criteria for judging the success of treatment.
