    Community Corrections - Probation and Parole Overview

    Probation and Parole Eligibility
    Convicted felon offenders whose sentence to incarceration is suspended and conditioned upon successful community supervision. Or who have served at least one-quarter of their sentence to incarceration and are released conditioned upon successful community supervision.

    Old Law Sentences (GCA Inmates)
    Inmates who committed their offenses before January 1, 1995, may be eligible for parole consideration. These inmates will be brought into the Department of Corrections to serve their sentences, provided the sentence is more than 2 years of felony time or a combination of felony and misdemeanor convictions totaling more than 2 years.

    The parole eligibility date represents the date on which the inmate becomes eligible to be considered for parole. Having a parole hearing does not guarantee that parole will be granted. Being granted parole does not indicate instantaneous release. If parole is granted the inmate will be released as soon as all administrative work is completed. All parolees receive parole supervision after incarceration. If parole is not granted, then the inmate will be eligible for reconsideration, each year, within the same quarter as the original parole eligibility date. For more information on parole or parole inquiries see Parole Board.

    New Law Sentences (FTX Inmates)
    Inmates who committed felony offenses on or after January 1, 1995 are not eligible for discretionary or mandatory parole. These inmates can earn a maximum of 4.5 days for each 30 days served. Inmates who committed their offenses on or after January 1, 1995, are brought into the Department of Corrections provided they receive one year or more for a felony conviction or more than 12 months for multiple felony convictions.

    The mission of probation and parole programs is to enhance public safety by positively impacting offenders so they will lead pro-social and crime-free lives. The Community Corrections Division administers these programs and is committed to "A Balanced Approach" to offender supervision. In practice, this is accomplished through:

    Investigation and assessment of risk and needCareful and focused plans of supervisionUse of a wide variety of resources and treatment servicesPurposeful and proportionate application of sanctions for delinquency and non-compliance

    Community Corrections includes statewide regional offices and stand-alone special facilities
