Course: Introduction / Community Corrections

Parole supervision refers to the period of time after an individual is released from prison, during which they are subject to certain conditions and restrictions as a condition of their parole.

Parole supervision is typically intended to help individuals successfully reintegrate into society and reduce recidivism risk.

The specific conditions of parole supervision can vary depending on the individual case and the jurisdiction but may include requirements to check in regularly with a parole officer, to abstain from drug or alcohol use, to attend counseling or treatment programs, to maintain employment or education, and to refrain from engaging in criminal activity.

Parole supervision is typically granted as a form of early release from prison, and is often used in cases where an individual has demonstrated good behavior and has completed certain rehabilitative programs while in prison. Parole supervision is intended to provide a period of transition between incarceration and full reintegration into society, and is often seen as an alternative to longer prison sentences.
