Funded by the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC), the Integrated Police-Parole Initiative (IPPI) places police officers in CSC offices, where they support the activities of parole staff.
First introduced in 2006-07, these officers work with high-risk offenders in their transition from the penitentiary to community, in order to increase public safety. Analyses of technical violations of conditional releases revealed that sites where these officers were deployed successfully reduced the number of parole violations. These promising results suggest that the IPPI has avoided the `community removal' element of parole supervision that is evident in some North American jurisdictions, and promotes the safe reintegration of offenders into the community. Implications for public safety, as well as law enforcement and correctional partnerships are discussed. Tables, notes, and references (Published Abstract)
