Parole Officers are responsible in helping paroled convicts and felons in getting reintegrated back into mainstream society and ensure they have reformed well enough not to engage in the same criminals or felonious acts that have brought them to prison. Paroled convicts technically remain prisoners serving their sentences but have been granted freedom by the Parole Board for reasons like good behavior. It is now the responsibility of the Parole Officer to prove that the paroled offender deserves it.
