New SD Policies Cut Parolee's Time, Management

New SD Policies Cut Parolee's Time, Management
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota corrections officials are making progress in implementing a series of new policies aimed at reducing recidivism rates and the state's prison population.

A Department of Corrections official on Thursday updated an oversight committee on the policies that took effect in July.

The state is setting up pilot programs, staff trainings and assessments to comply with the changes.

Two pilot programs totaling $500,000 will offer new services for parolees. One will provide transitional housing for low-risk offenders.  Another program partners tribal and state officials to allow state parolees to return to their tribal homes.

One of the new polices already implemented has allowed more than 70 percent of the parolee population to reduce their parole time with good behavior.
