Annotation: This executive summary reports on a study of suspensions and revocations part of the major parole research program as conducted by the Research Division of the Ministry of the Solicitor General of Canada.
Abstract: It supplies data on the processes, documentation, grounds and reasons for suspension and revocations through a study including a review of NPB regional files, interviews with important decision-makers, and mailed questionnaires to parole supervisors in private agencies. The results provide information regarding reasons for suspensions and their outcomes; factors related to suspension/revocation decisions; and time delay. Recommendations deal with CSC documentation; time delay, criteria for suspensions and revocations, and criteria for re-credit and remission. In particular, CSC documentation in suspension proceedings should include specific information; time delay should be reduced either by additional Board members or by hearing examiners; and criteria need to be established for decisionmaking about suspension, revocation, and recrediting of remission. 4 notes
