Abstract

Beginning in 2006, the Iowa Department of Corrections embarked on a systematic offender program audit at each of the state’s institutions and community-based corrections agencies, the purpose of which was to determine each program’s effectiveness as supported by results and research (evidence-based practices). Those programs demonstrating success were maintained, and all others either modified to comply with evidence-based practices or replaced by programming that did.
