Annotation: This 1978-79 annual report of Missouri's Division of Probation and Parole describes the structure, administration, policies, future plans, and parole board actions during the year.
Abstract: Data are given on parole board action by institution and at hearings and reviews, on parole versus commutation, on male parolees with successful outcomes, and on total parolees by year paroled. Court services are detailed, and graphs illustrate presentence investigations by fiscal year, caseload and assignments by fiscal year, and probation openings by quarter. Field services for each of the five regions of the State are also described, along with pretrial programs and staff training. The report indicates that between one-fifth and one-fourth of parolees are unsuccessful during their first year under supervision; however, only a small percentage of parolees become unsuccessful between the first and second years and between the second and third years under supervision. Assignments to the board and its caseloads increased at the end of 1979, in part because judges statewide were giving out longer probation sentences. The division collected nearly $610,000 in 1979 in court costs and restitution from clients. Tabular data, charts, and maps are provided.
