U.S. Paroling Authorities as Key Partners in Promoting the Governor’s Criminal Justice Policy Agenda

11 Thu
May, 2017

On Thursday, May 11 at 2 pm ET, the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the National Parole Resource Center will host a 90-minute webinar with support from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance entitled, "U.S. Paroling Authorities as Key Partners in Promoting the Governor’s Criminal Justice Policy Agenda."

This webinar will provide an overview of the critical role that paroling authorities can play in advancing U.S. governors’ criminal justice priorities and an introduction to evidence-based and promising practices in parole.

In addition, the webinar will provide information about applying for a learning collaborative through which four selected U.S. state teams will: (1) participate in a two-day summit where they will review the latest research on parole best practices, identify strategies for strengthening their state’s parole system, and explore opportunities for enhancing collaboration between governors’ offices and paroling authorities; (2) receive technical assistance in convening a workshop to refine recommendations they develop during the summit; and (3) present those recommendations and a plan of action to their governor.
