Parolees Pay Supervision and Victim Compensation Fees
In November 1984, the Board began collecting a monthly supervision fee from every parolee with a supervision period of three months or longer. The money collected from parolees is deposited in the State treasury general fund.
Beginning in September 1991, parolees serving for violent offenses began paying a monthly victim compensation fee, which goes to the Georgia Crime Victims Emergency Fund.
Eligible parolees pay either a $30 supervision fee or a $30 victim compensation fee each month, but not both. The Board may exempt parolees who, due to certain disabilities, may be unable to remit such payments without extreme hardship on them or their families. The Board has the authority to change the amount of the supervision fee or victim compensation fee as long as it is uniform statewide.
