Parole Release Unit
The PRU is an important partner to community transition teams pursuant to Prisoner Reentry. The PRU works with institution staff as well as field agents to provide a seamless transition from prison to the community by providing information on the offenders proposed placement in the community. As local transition teams conduct in-reach activity with prisoners, the PRU stands ready to revise placement plans to suit changing assessments of prisoners’ needs and identification of employment opportunities and offers of community support. The PRU has limited authority to add special conditions of parole in response to the findings of pre-parole investigators and to take requests from the field agent for the deletion of special conditions to the Parole Board for review and decision prior to parole release.
