ANNUAL REPORT 2012 PAROLE BOARD OF THE NORTHERN TERRITORY | ANNUAL REPORT 2012 11 Parole Officers The functions of parole officers under Section 3R of the Parole of Prisoners Act are to: supervise persons released on parole as assigned by the Parole Board; supervise persons who are mentally impaired and unfit for trial and are therefore made subject to a noncustodial supervision order within the meaning of Part IIA of the Criminal Code; prepare reports as required by the Parole Board; maintain case records and statistics as required by the Parole Board; carry out the directions of the Parole Board in relation to a parole order; investigate and make reports to the Parole Board on the employment and place of living available to each person applying for release on parole; and perform such other duties as directed by the Parole Board or the Chairperson. Parole officers commence working with a prisoner eight months before they become eligible for parole. During this time the parole officer works closely with the prisoners, their family, communities and victims to ensure that Parole Board members are provided with comprehensive, timely and reliable information.
