Inside Corrections, Probation and Parole

Correctional, probation and parole officers are involved in the supervision and monitoring of convicted offenders who are incarcerated or who are out of prison on supervised released. While they perform different roles in public safety, these officers help offenders adjust to life outside of prison. For example, a correctional treatment specialist may organize programs for inmates, monitor and record their progress and create a rehabilitation plan once inmates are paroled and released. Probation and parole officers then monitor offenders who have been released from prison.
