Parole audit finds officers checking dead people

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - A state audit of the Board of Probation and Parole found that employees were making annual arrest checks of at least 82 dead parolees. The parolees had been dead anywhere from less than six months to more than 19 years.

In at least two cases, officers completed documents stating that the offenders were still alive.

The audit results were released on Monday.

In a statement on the audit, Comptroller Justin Wilson said, "If parole officers are supervising dead people, this is a waste of taxpayer dollars and makes us wonder about the supervision of parolees living in our communities."

The audit also found that many probation and parole officers were not completing all the supervision requirements. There were many instances of no evidence that officers tried to contact offenders.
