Parole in Nebraska was established in 1893 with the Governor holding sole power to parole an individual. By legislative action that was enacted in August 1969, the Parole Adminsitration was established. Nebraska's parole officers play an extremely important role in the transition that an inmate makes when they are released into the community. The officer's goal is to assist each parolee in achieving a successful discharge from parole supervision and to become a responsible member of society.

Adult Parole: Parole Operations
Parole is a method of prison release whereby inmates are released into the community under supervision before having completed their entire sentence. Parole was established in Nebraska in 1893. The Nebraska Board of Parole has the statutory power to grant parole, discharge from parole and revoke parole.
Parole Officers, who are employees of the Nebraska Department of Corrections, supervise inmates released on parole by the Nebraska Board of Parole and parolees from other states in Nebraska. During budget year 2005, the average cost of supervising a parolee was $2,433.
Parole Officers supervise parolee activity while assisting with the parolee's reintegration into society. A parole officer monitors the parolee's travel, residence, employment, associates, financial obligations, drug/alcohol use, and compliance with laws and special conditions of parole. Parolees may also be required to attend mental health counseling, sex offender counseling or substance abuse counseling. Sex offenders are required to register their address with law enforcement agencies. Electronic monitoring may be used to monitor a parolee's activities. Urinalysis tests are performed on parolees to deter drug and alcohol use. Violating a condition of parole may result in the parolee being returned to prison.
Nebraska has participated in the Interstate Parole and Probation Compact since 1937. Under this Compact a parolee may live in another state while being supervised. The Compact provides guidelines for the regulation and supervision of Nebraska parolees who live in other states and parolees from other states who live in Nebraska.

Adult Parole: Statistics
A comparison between the cost of parole supervision and incarceration shows that parole supervision is more cost effective. Even when an inmate pays a portion of his/her room and board while on work release, the cost for parole supervision continues to be lower.

Average Cost per Inmate (2005):
Parole - $2,433

Because parolees pay for their own housing, food, and medical expenses, the largest budgetary items for Adult Parole administration consist of personnel, vehicles and equipment.

Average Population: 767

Number of Staff: 31

There are various types of parole violations. The more serious parole violations result in parole revocation (generally, putting the offender back into the prisons), while less serious violations may result in an extension of the parole term through loss of good time. Other sanctions may also be applied.

Parole during the year 2005
Paroled: 870

Adult Parole: Public Safety Efforts
Parole Administration is involved in many programs and activities in an effort to keep Nebraska communities safe, assist victims, and aid parolees in a successful transition back into their communities. A few of these programs are:

Project Impact: A program designed to stop youth violence by placing local law enforcement officers on the streets with probation and parole officers, to make nighttime enforcement contact with known gang members who are currently under supervision.

Governor's Substance Abuse Task Force: A committee working towards establishing an affordable continuum of treatment through the court, probation, corrections, and parole systems enabling offenders to receive needed help for drug and alcohol addictions.

Continuous Quality Improvement: An effort is being made by the Department of Correctional services to improve quality of services to victims, the community, offenders and department employees.

Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE): Victims who register with VINE will be notified when offenders are paroled.

Community Involvement Committee: A committee composed of a cross-sectional representation of community members who provide feedback on the impact of Parole Administration policies, procedures and practices.

Victim Assistance Program: A Department of Correctional Services Program designed to assist staff who have been victimized while conducting department business, or as the result of employment with the Department of Corrections.
