Report Recommends Ohio Lower Caseloads Of Parole Officers
A new report recommends the state lower the caseload of the parole officers who monitor inmates after release.
The report says the current caseload is one parole officer for every 76 inmates. The report says that should be reduced to for every 50 in general and one for every 40 in cases of inmates with a mental illness or other disability. The governor ordered a review of the state system following the alleged involvement of a recently released offender in a crash that killed two 6-year-olds last year.
