Body

North Carolina will soon have tougher probation supervision that should help strengthen public safety.

Governor Perdue announced parole and probation policy changes today including upping the budget to add more officers, raising pay, and offering additional training.

Another initiative launched today is a website that lists parole and probation absconders by county.

Jean Walker, a local community corrections manager, said the site would be a big help. “These absconders may be your neighbors, they may be your co-workers, so if people have access to the names and the pictures online, then I think that’ll be great.”

Another change proposed by Perdue also proposed that probationers would have to consent to random searches without a warrant.
