Parole provides community supervision to offenders who are serving a sentence for a non-violent offense released by the Parole Board and to offenders who are serving a sentence for a violent offense released by the Governor to finish serving their sentences outside of prison, subject to certain conditions. Offenders on parole must pay a supervision fee of $40.00 per month. Special conditions may be imposed by the Parole Board to further restrict freedom, limit movement in the community, add further punitive measures, or to require rehabilitative services. Violation of any of the standard or special conditions of parole may result in the imposition of additional/intermediate punitive sanctions, up to and including sending the offender back to prison.
