PROBATION & PAROLE
Representing With Respect
Probation is supervised by the Court or a probation officer. Parole is always supervised by a parole officer. A State Board of Probation and Parole Authority generally governs the release of offenders from confinement by means of parole or conditional release. The Authority determines whether placement in a residential facility, community release center or on electronic monitoring is appropriate. The Authority establishes special conditions in order to address an offender’s specific needs, ultimately reducing risk and improving success under supervision. The board conducts investigations and provides information to the governor on all applications for pardons, commutations of sentence, reprieves or restorations of citizenship.
Probable Penalties & Monitoring Conditions
The penalty for a violation of probation can me the balance of the maximum term not yet served. Violations of Parole are usually 1 year for each violation. Probation and parole staff coordinate and manage a continuum of community based programs and employ a variety of supervision services to improve public safety and offender success.
