Description

The role that parole plays in criminal justice is hotly debated. Some states have dismantled their Parole Boards, while others have undertaken the painstaking work of revamping the system, replete with new parole revocation guidelines. This policy brief examines the current state statute and release criteria governing the Massachusetts Parole Board's decision-making process, plus parole trends over the last decade, Board membership, the impasse created by parole criteria and classification practices, and the role of parole in maintaining public safety.
