sNEW STATE DEPARTMENT WILL1
BESIN CLOSE TOUCH VITH
MEN ON PAROLE
Lansing, Jan.. 3.-Considerable in-
formation regarding the attitude of
paroled convicts toward society. the
principal reasons for reversion to
crime on the part of freed prisoners
and the percentage of convicts who go
straight when given their freedom wii1
probably become available through a
new department established by Fred
Janette, state commisioner of pardons
Elaborate Check System
The new policy Inthe pardon and
paroles department Is to elaborate on
the check up system for paroled con-
victs and institute a system whereby
the state department will constantly
be in close personal touch with men
and women on parole. Under the pres-
ent system paroled convicts report to
designated "best friends". The report
is then relayed to the state denart-
ment. Very frequently, it has been
found, the reports contain nothing
more than a statement from the con-
vict, and about the only information
is what the prisoner says about him-
Many On Parole Go Wrong
According to Mr. Janettethe per-
centage of paroled convicts who "go
wrong" while on parole Is high enough
to warrant a closer chek. Just how
much part men of this class have in
everyday crime is a question, but it is
admitted that under the present sys-
ter, there is a pssibility that it!
might; be considerable without the
state or anyone else knowing enoh
about it to cut off the liberty of the
offender. Under the proposed new
system, whereby a department will d-
vote its time exclusively to lookng
after paroled convicts, it is hoped
that information will be more definite
and that those freed prisoners who are
a menace to society will be returned
to prison before they have had a
chance to do much harm. The depart-
ment will also, it is believed, be of
inestimable value to the paroled con-
victs who are making good.
