ANNUAL REPORT 2012 PAROLE BOARD OF THE NORTHERN TERRITORY | ANNUAL REPORT 2012 21 Supporting Indigenous Offenders Northern Territory Correctional Services has entered into formal arrangements with NAAJA and CAALAS to operate Prisoner Support Officers programs. Under these arrangements the following occurs when a prisoner is a client of NAAJA or CAALAS: The Secretary of the Board provides the relevant Prisoner Support Officer with a copy of the letter they send to a prisoner, informing the prisoner of the decision of the Board about whether the prisoner has been granted parole or not. This means the Prisoner Support Officer can go through the letter with the prisoner and also obtain further information from the Secretary if necessary. Where the Board makes a decision about the parole of a prisoner which is contrary to the recommendation contained in the report of the parole officer a meeting may be held with the parole officer, the Prisoner Support Officer and the prisoner to discuss the Boards reasons for decision. Both NAAJA and CAALAS have been advised that if the prisoner wishes to make an application to be present at the meeting of the Board which considers his or her application for parole, then this can be done by the Prisoner Support Officer and any such application will be considered on its merits. Further, NAAJA and CAALAS have been advised the Board will consider any written submissions that are made on behalf of a prisoner about parole.
