In Lieu of Parole Officers? LEADS 2.0

CDCR has launched the usage of LEADS 2.0, the new version of a parolee-management database that is accessible to law enforcement agencies. The database is supposed to contain updated information about the status of parolees (at-large, deported, and anyone belonging to the new category of non-revocable parole) and allow simultaneous searches by multiple users.

Interestingly, the software is promoted partly as a mechanism to offset personnel loss, and in that respect seems to be a similar technological "save" as GPS monitoring.
