Parole is a legislated system by which an inmate can be released from prison at an early point in their sentence.

As a parolee, an individual is still a prisoner, but with the opportunity to live out their remaining sentence at home, living a normal productive life under supervision.

This system allows an inmate who is serving 2 years or more to be released back into the community under supervision after serving 50% of their sentence time.

It also allows inmates serving 10 years or a determine sentence of 21 years and above to be release after serving 7 years.

Those persons who are serving time for murder do not qualify for parole.

Parolees are monitored and supervised while on parole and this helps to foster the threshold for a successful re-entry to society.
