Default From. J. Shaffer regarding covid and post-release housing

From Jennifer Shaffer, BPH: Parole Plans and Transitional Housing

We understand that the first few weeks after an inmate is released after a long period of incarceration can be particularly stressful and difficult. To ease this adjustment the Board generally imposes a condition that inmates participate in transitional housing. The Board will continue to do so. However, given the potential impact of COVID-19 on group living environments, the Board is working with the Division of Adult Parole Operations to evaluate alternative placements, when warranted. Specifically, the Board will consider placing some parolees in a residence with a pro-social friend or relative. Parolees already living in a transitional housing environment should notify their parole agent if they have COVID-19-related concerns and would like to request to live in an available alternative residence with a pro-social family member or friend. Inmates who have been granted parole and are waiting to be released can write to the Board to request consideration of alternative parole plans (address below). As always, inmates with an upcoming parole hearing are encouraged to bring parole plans and support letters to their parole hearings for discussion, which may include plans to live in a transitional housing facility or a private residence with a pro-social family or friend.

I read that Newsom was worried about this exact issue. Where is everyone going to go if we have large releases? He likened released inmates sleeping on park benches because they have nowhere to go as cruel. Not as cruel as prison but it is something they need to solve.

Home, where they came from. It's none of their concern, really. They have overstepped boundaries for far too long.
