Published
09/16/2016

Prior to being discharged from the state criminal justice system, adult offenders are released from prison for a period of parole. This issue brief summarizes recent state adult parole initiatives. These include the offender reentry programs authorized in House Bill 14-1355, and the “intermediate sanctions” program established in Senate Bill 15-124 to reduce offender returns to prison for certain technical violations.
