History of Mandatory Supervision

Mandatory supervision is the release of an eligible prisoner sentenced to the institutional division so that the prisoner may serve the remainder of the prisoner’s sentence not on parole but under the supervision of the pardons and paroles division.  It was originally created to ensure parole custody for all prisoners in order to prevent recidivism.  It was intended to provide the prisoner/releasee with a supervised transition from prison to the local community and to ensure that parole officers would provide the releasee with guidance, control, assistance, and support.  Since its creation in 1977, the mandatory supervision statute has been revised many times and on September 1, 1996, mandatory supervision became discretionary mandatory supervision. 
 
The attached paper, in PDF format, discusses the history of mandatory supervision and eligibility for release on mandatory supervision under the old law and under the new law.
