The IPO shall determine the county of residence for Texas residents and non-residents and
shall eventually enter this information on the Case Summary. When the county of residence
has been established, the IPO shall inform the offender that state law requires that a plan to the
county of residence be submitted (if available). Officers will use their best judgment to
finalize the counties of residence. Refer to PD/AD-3.1.4 for additional information on
releasee residence requirements. The following shall be reviewed, keeping in mind that a
combination of the offender interview and the following information should be used to make
a determination.
1. Pre-Sentence Investigation (PSI)
2. Police/Prosecution Reports
3. TDCJ-ID Admission Summary
4. Offender (self-report)
For non-residents, the county of residence shall be the county of conviction.

My best explanation is that each unit in TDC is assigned to an IPO and what they seem to be mainly involved with is the actual review process during parole. They work up the legalities of the sentence as it affects eligiblilties and releae dates and then gather and assemble information and profile on the offender into their file. Except for the actual vote itself, most other parole division functionality tha involves the review and release process is done by IPO personnel.

Now, that is just my take on it. I imagine that the actual job descriptions and work assignements are much more involved than that. Here is a link to the Parole Division Directory - IPO's and the units that are assigned to them.


Oh. Jo found some official words. Good!
