The purpose of this technical assistance request was to assist the Kansas Parole Board with reducing the num-ber of offenders revoked from post-release supervision and with streamlining the revocation process so that offenders spend less time incarcerated. The recommen-dations below are made for the purpose of assisting the Board with the aforementioned tasks. In suggest-ing ways the Parole Board may achieve these two objectives, we draw upon current research and best practices in the field community corrections, as well as the project teams’ collective experience working with supervising agencies. We provide these suggestions after a thorough review of the interviews conducted with the Board and parole managers, survey responses to the parole officer survey, and a review of the stat-utes, and internal policy and procedure manuals used by the Kansas parole agency. The recommendations are presented as a series of suggestions with the under-standing that the Board members and parole field staff are in the best position to decide which suggestions are feasible and most beneficial to adopt.
