Parole Population in Georgia

As of July 1, 2015, supervision of parolees in Georgia is the responsibility of the Department of Community Supervision. The Parole Board assists in the transition of the offender back into the community and works with the Department of Community Supervision to quickly reincarcerate those offenders who fail to follow the conditions of parole.
