Volume 66 Number 3
December 2002

There has been renewed interest in prisoner reentry and the role of community parole and release supervision officers in successful reentry. The author describes a study of parole officers in St. Louis, Missouri to identify those aspects of prisoner reentry they perceive as important to success, as well as their own supervisory activities that they believe improve the chance of success.
