Annotation: The responsibilities and activities of the Nebraska Board of Parole from July 1, 1979 through June 30, 1980 are reviewed.
Abstract: Although parole has been part of the State's correctional system since 1893, an autonomous parole board was first established in 1968. The report discusses the appointment, qualifications, removal, and activity limitations of board members and their constitutional and statutory duties and powers. A section on the paroling process considers institutional good-time and its effect upon eligibility for parole and mandatory release, parole criteria, hearings, parole plan development, reduction of the parole term for good behavior, and discharge from parole. The report also deals with parole violations and procedures for handling violation cases. A final section reviews the parole board's objectives and goals. Appended are a parole board functional chart and tables with information on types of crimes for which paroles are granted and on the paroling and violation processes. Other tables are concerned with prerelease and postcare program processing, interstate corrections compact transfers, requests for parole board approval, and the preparation and maintenance of offender files. A sample parole certificate is included.
