An Audit Report on the Department of Criminal Justice’s and Board of Pardons and Paroles’ Processes for Addressing Parole Violations under the Electronic Monitoring Program

April 2023


The Department of Criminal Justice (Department) had adequate processes to supervise parolees on electronic monitoring; however, it did not consistently comply with requirements for addressing violations for these parolees. Specifically, the Department should ensure that it completes all parole supervision requirements. The Department should also consider requiring that warrants be issued in response to severe violations to allow the Board of Pardons and Paroles (Board) to decide whether to continue parole.

In addition, the Board should consider developing guidance to ensure that its parole panels’ decisions address the severity of the violations.
