RESOLUTION



    A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION urging the establishment of an interim study committee to review the procedures dealing with probation and parole.

    Whereas, The term "probation" refers to a procedure under which an order by a judge is issued as an alternative to incarceration and allows the convicted person to remain in the community;

    Whereas, Parole is ordered by the Parole Board and allows the convicted person to complete the sentence in the community;

    Whereas, The laws regarding probation and parole were created to help rehabilitate an offender and to return the offender to a productive role in society; and

    Whereas, If these procedures become a detriment to society instead of an enhancement, it is time to review the effectiveness of such procedures: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate of the General Assembly

of the State of Indiana, the House of Representatives concurring:



    SECTION 1. That the legislative council is urged to establish a commission to study the procedures dealing with probation and parole in Indiana's correctional system.
    SECTION 2. That the committee, if established, shall operate under the direction of the legislative council and that the committee shall issue a final report when directed to do so by the council.
