Parole question, confused. When do they get their Parole Packet?
I read online in one of the policies that when they get within 5 months of their "parole date" or the least amount of time they have to be away. It will say they are eligible for parole. If this is the case, will he get his parole packet then? Or did I misunderstand this completely.

The Time Computation Unit has responsibility for the calculation of release eligibility dates for all offenders and oversight of the institution release processes. This would include the auditing of intake documents for accuracy, recalculation of release eligibility dates due to forfeiture of release credits, a change in release credits earned due to disciplinary sanctions and monitoring of the release eligibility dates.
Audit Intake: Ensures accurate information from court documents is annotated in Adult Inmate Management System (AIMS). Calculates offender release date(s) in accordance with the certified sentencing order and applicable statutes. Requests clarification from sentencing court or Department's General Counsel on discrepancies in court orders. Forwards restitution information to Inmate Banking. Sentence Modifications: Verifies additional sentences and sentence modifications. Re-calculates release dates based on certified sentencing orders. Verifies authenticity of conviction and sentence vacates. Board of Executive Clemency (BOEC) Certification: Certifies eligible offenders for BOEC review monthly. Verifies eligibility for commutation and/or pardon and forward applications to the Board of Executive Clemency. Forfeitures/Restorations and Class III Rescissions: Reviews and verifies all recommendations for forfeiture, restoration or rescissions. Ensures policy compliance. Processes approved actions and re-calculate time accordingly.
Paul's release packet had to be filled out and signed 210 days prior to his release. That "magic number" was this weekend, and he counselor was adamant about getting it signed by Friday. They went through the Parole Process with him, told him what he can and can not do. His release packet has him "paroling" to me, they have to verify my address, etc.
They also do a complete background check to make sure there are no outstanding warrants, etc etc. It is delivered to him at 180 days, which is 6 months prior to him walking out the gate. This final one will be signed by Central and the Warden, etc etc.
Hope that helps!!

Your loved one will be able to tell you when the release packet is finalized and his release is set. You can "track down" your parole officer, base on your address. They have a number of offices all around the state. They are all listed on the DOC site. Once the release packet is finalized, and accepted, then you can start calling the parole office. You will probably not get your questions answered from the prison, itself.
I'm about 6 months out, and will start making calls the first of June. NO need to bother anyone before then!
