Behavioural change follows a multi-level, rather than a single, track. Rarely does real change occur simply because someone like Sonny Rollins simply decides to ‘straighten up and fly right’ or even as a direct result of enrolling in a treatment programme (as Rollins did when he went to Lexington). Both tracks – self-determination and professional intervention – are part of a larger process of change. This process also involves a third, often unacknowledged track involving informal help, social support and social control from friends, acquaintances, family members, neighbours and significant others (see especially Farrall 2002; Warr 2002).

Having identified these needs and risks, intervention professionals then proceed to develop supervision plans that gear levels of surveillance to the documented levels of threat presented by the offender. In some jurisdictions, and especially in juvenile justice agencies, these professionals also conduct offender needs assessments and attempt to match offenders with appropriate services and treatment or remedial programmes designed to address the deficit in question. Though various aftercare models talk about communitybased agencies, and occasionally about the role of work and educational institutions, the parole/aftercare enterprise is in essence a highly individualized one.
