Abstract: Parole offers an opportunity for offenders to serve a portion of their sentences under less restricted custody, usually in the community setting. Parole has been a part of Nebraska's correctional system since 1893. The parole board determines the time of release on parole of committed offenders eligible for such releases, fixes the conditions of parole, revokes parole, issues or authorizes the issuance of warrants for the arrest of parole violators, imposes other sanctions short of revocation for violation of parole conditions, and determines the time of discharge from parole. In addition, the board reviews the record of every committed offender, whether or not eligible for parole, not less than once each year. The board meets with offenders and counsels them concerning their progress and prospects for future parole. In making its determinations regarding release on parole, the board considers many factors, including the offender's record, achievements during incarceration, and probablility of completing a successful parole period. During this report period, 2,343 reviews were held, 470 hearings were granted, 405 paroles were granted, and 48 paroles were denied. Parole revocations totaled 101. Data tables and a chart are appended.
