How does the Division of Parole supervise high-risk cases like sex offenders?
The Division of Parole has developed specialized units specifically for the supervision of sex offenders and other high-risk cases. These Special Offender Units are staffed by specially trained parole officers and operate throughout the state. Parole officers in these units make additional field contacts with the offenders and use surveillance devices such as electronic monitoring units to assist in the supervision effort. In addition, frequent contacts are made with law enforcement agencies and in some instances, parole officers and police officers work together to supervise the case in the community.
