Only Ex-Offenders Need Apply. The Ohio Parole Officer Aide Program. An Exemplary Project.
The Parole Officer Aide Program of Ohio employs qualified ex-offenders as Parole Officer Aides (POA). The POA is given on-the-job training for six months and assumes the identical tasks as parole officers with the exception of signing parole violation reports. The POA's background and familiarity with local situations gives him the ability to handle multiple problem cases. The State, regular parole officers, and the parolees under POA supervision are the main beneficiaries of the program. The program's success can be attributed to the number of qualified applicants, strict and sensible screening, training, and the support of parole officers. Answers to questions regarding the development of POA programs are presented. (Author/EC)
