Hon. L. T. Pennell (Solicitor General):

1.

There are 74 parole officers employed by the National Parole Board, which now forms a part of the Department of the Solicitor General.

Parole officers interview inmates of penal and reform institutions, both federal and provincial, and investigate home conditions

in order to appraise their prospects for rehabilitation in the light of conduct, industry, maturity and prospective community environments. They make comprehensive reports of their findings and make recommendations to the board.

Parole officers provide supervision for parolees either directly or indirectly through after care agencies. They are empowered to suspend parole and make recommendations for revocations, continuation or forfeiture of parole.

They also review applications for remission or suspension of court orders prohibiting operation of motor vehicles under the Criminal Code, conduct investigations and make dations to the board.

2. Thirty-three of these parole officers are trained social workers.

3. Thirty-nine are university graduates in the social sciences.

4. The department does not make provision for bursaries for the training of more parole officers. Rather, it promotes and encourages existing parole officers to improve their professional qualifications, particularly in the fields of social work and criminology. Departmental assistance takes the form of educational leave with pay and reimbursement of tuition fees.
