Default Changing Parole Address

I need to know if it is possible for an inmate to change his parole address. My brother lives in San Bernardino county and wants to change his parole to LA county. His parole officer keeps telling him he cant do it. Is this true? and if not what does he need to do in order to get it changed?

Transfers to another county are allowed in certain circumstances according to parole rules:

81010.2 Policy
Revised November 28, 1990
Updated August 27, 2007
All inmates shall be paroled to the county of commitment unless the
case complies with an exception criteria. County of commitment is the
county where the crime for which the parolee was committed occurred,
except for crimes committed in prison. Commitments to prison for an
in-custody (prison) felony shall not be used as the basis for determining
the county of commitment. If the parolee has been discharged from all
previous terms, consideration shall be given to placement in another,
more appropriate county in accordance with exception criteria. An
inmate may be paroled to another county if it would be in the best
interest of the public and of the parolee. The reasons for parole to
another county shall be specified in writing in the parolee's C-File.
Another County
The following factors shall be considered in determining if parole to
another county is justified:
The need to protect the life or safety of a victim, the parolee, a
witness or any other person.

Public concern that would reduce the chance that the individual's
parole would be successfully completed.

The verified existence of a work offer, or an educational or
vocational training program in another county that encompasses
the following:

Permanent employment that will enable parolee to be
financially self-sufficient. (Minimum wage jobs, such as
busboy or short-term jobs such as cannery worker, are not
self-supporting or of sufficient duration to qualify.)

Training or educational program that will: be full time;
materially upgrade the parolee's employment skills or
educational level and thus substantially improve
employability; and will provide sufficient funds to preclude
the parolee from relying on welfare, CDC cash assistance or
similar programs.

The last legal residence of the parolee having been in another
county.

The existence of family in another county with whom the parolee
has maintained strong ties and whose support would increase the
chance that parole would be successfully completed.

Family members are defined in Section 3000 of the Title 15
as the parolee's legal spouse, registered domestic partner,
natural parents; adoptive parents, if the adoption occurred
and a family relationship existed prior to the parolee's
incarceration; step-parents or foster parents; grandparents;
brothers and sisters; the parolee's natural and adoptive
children; step-children or grandchildren. Aunts, uncles and
cousins are not considered as immediate family members
unless a bonafide foster relationship exists.

The lack of necessary outpatient treatment programs for parolees
receiving treatment pursuant to PC 2960.

An inmate who is released on parole shall not be returned to
within 35 miles of the actual residence of a victim of, or a witness
to, a violent felony as defined in paragraphs (1) to (7) inclusive of
subdivision (c) of PC 667.5 and any, felony in which the defendant inflicts
great bodily injury on any person other than an accomplice which has been
charged and proved as provided for in
PC 12022.7 or 12022.9, if the victim or witness has requested additional
distance in the placemeny of the inmate on parole, and if the BPT or the
P&CSD finds that there is a need to protect the life, safety or well-being of a
victim or witness.

Preparole referrals for out of state placement shall not be made unless the
inmate is a resident of the other state or has relatives in the receiving state
and it is clear that the inmate will be self-supporting.

If he meets the criteria his parole agent needs to file a Transfer Investigation Request and send it to LA county parole.

He can change address' within the same county. If your families house is located in a different county then his last known residence then he would need to transfer his parole and he would need to meet the qualifications posted above by Mybrd in Title 15.
