The Parole Division is tasked with promoting public safety and providing community based supervision and services for adult offenders as they transition from the Tafuna Correctional Facility to the community.
What does the Parole Division do?
The Parole Division supervises offenders released from the Tafuna Correctional Facility who will be serving out the remainder of their sentence within our communities.
The overall goal of the Parole Division is to ensure that offenders released on parole become contributing members of society. It performs pre-release investigations taking into consideration proposed parole plans,
tracking parole-eligible inmates and submitting them for consideration before the Parole Board.
The Parole Division does not make parole decisions, revocations, or, if applicable, the attendant special conditions placed on those released from parole. The authority for such decisions rests solely with the Parole Board. The Parole Division serves an administrative role by providing members of the Board with the required documentation needed to make an informed decision.
Additionally, the Parole Board serves in an advisory role by providing recommendations on matters of clemency including executive pardons, to the Governor of American Samoa.
