DENVER (AP) A newspaper's review of about 2,000 audits dating to the beginning of 2011 reveals Colorado parole officers committed fundamental supervision errors in more than 60% of the cases they handled.
The Denver Post reports auditors found officers failed to respond appropriately to parole violations about 30% of the time, complete a behavioral and supervision plan in nearly 22% of cases and adhere to contact standards, including required visits to parolees' homes, nearly 32% of the time.
They also failed to conduct risk assessments to identify parolee weaknesses or hold initial office visits with parolees nearly 20% of the time and didn't respond to all telephone calls from or about parolees in 6% of cases.
The Post reports that, overall, 60% of the audits contained at least one of these failures.
