State, Tribal Heads OK Shared Parole Pilot Program

May 5, 2014, 5:21 PM

PIERRE, SD -

Officials from the South Dakota Department of Corrections and the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate Tribe have signed an agreement on a pilot program allowing tribal members to serve parole at home.

The agreement is the result of the Public Safety Improvement Act designed to reduce the prison population. It took effect in July.

Corrections officials on Monday updated the policy's oversight council.

The council has approved an effort to seek federal funds to help reduce the disproportionate number of Native American women from Pennington County in the prison system.

Corrections officials are working to reduce parole times and provide housing for low-risk parolees.

The Department of Social Services has expanded substance abuse and criminal thinking programs as part of the public safety act.
