A better proposal for NYS parole regulations

Print Friendly

In 2011, an Executive Law mandated the New York State Board of Parole to base release decisions on risk assessment tools, but until now, the board has failed to do so.

Now the Board of Parole has posted for public comment their revised regulations to meet this legal need.

As written, their regulations would not achieve the goal of changing parole practices and increasing the safe release of elderly incarcerated people, so the Correctional Association and the Release Aging People in Prison (RAPP) Campaign have proposed an alternative version of parole regulations.
