Division of Parole

Inactive Supervision Program

Parolees who successfully complete two-thirds of their parole may no longer be required to maintain contact with a parole officer. Such parolees are said to be in inactive supervision. We examined the procedures established by the Division of Parole for ensuring that only eligible parolees are placed in inactive supervision. We found that, because of delays in processing records indicating that a parolee should not be placed in inactive supervision, parolees may inappropriately be placed in this less intensive form of supervision. To help reduce these processing delays, we recommend that certain recordkeeping practices be automated.
