Protecting Our Parole Officers

After an individual on parole shot his parole officer last week, the governor has announced a pilot program to install metal detectors at three parole offices in New York City by the end of this month.

New York State Public Employees Federation , which represents more than 900 parole officers, has been trying to negotiate the installation of metal detectors at parole offices with the State Divison of Parole for several years. For more information on the pilot program, click here.
