Parole Release & Revocation

Parole Release EA Header

The Parole Release and Revocation initiative researches the components and framework of parole release and revocation decision-making across the United States. This initiative is committed to engaging paroling authorities in both indeterminate and determinate sentencing states in examining all elements of the discretionary parole release and post-release violations process. An important goal of the research is to contribute to the enhancement of decision-making at every stage.

Outcomes of this initiative include the publication of comprehensive federal and state profiles that focus on the legal framework of parole release and revocation; partnerships with select jurisdictions across the nation; the completion of a national survey of releasing authorities across the United States; and a published report of the findings from that national survey.
