Supervision

Inmates granted parole must follow all of the conditions of parole established by the board or written instructions imposed by their supervising agent. Some general conditions of parole require an offender to:
 
• report to their parole officer
• reside at the approved residence
• pay court costs and restitution owed
• comply with all federal, state and local laws.
 
Special conditions are conditions that are tailored to an individual parolee’s needs, such as electronic monitoring, mental health treatment or drug and alcohol counseling.
 
The supervising parole agent reviews the conditions of parole and the supervision plan with the inmate. The agent uses problem solving strategies with parolees and assists parolees at risk of parole failure through interventions in the community.
 

What is the role of the parole agent?

Through a balance of supervision, enforcement and problem-solving case management, parole agents work with parolees to ensure that they are following their conditions of parole and help parolees transition successfully into the community. By assisting parolees with job training and employment, treatment for mental and/or physical illnesses, drug and alcohol programs, and life skills development they are much more likely to succeed, less likely to commit another crime and the public is safer.
