PAROLE OFFICERS PRESENT THEIR CONCERNS TO LAWMAKERS

Dozens of PEF-represented parole officers from across the state met with legislators May 17 for the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision Lobby Day.

They raised a number of issues such as parity in benefits as those received by other law enforcement officers, the need for updated personal alarms, the risks they take protecting the public, and how the consolidation of facility parole officer and counselor titles is not benefiting the community or parolees.

The parole officers met with Assembly Members Gary Finch, Nick Perry, Luis Sepulveda, state Senators Patrick Gallivan, John Flanagan, and representatives from other legislative offices.parolemontage
