Parolees can return to incarceration by having their parole revoked for a technical violation or for committing a new crime, or a combination of the two. For FY22 (July 2021-June 2022), there was a total of 46 parole violations that resulted in a revocation. Of the total revocations in FY22, 52.2% were due to committing a new crime (can include a technical violation as well) and 47.8% were due to technical violations.
It is difficult to identify a trend in this data as the COVID-19 pandemic has postponed many violation hearings for alleged new crimes due slow activity within the court system. Many new alleged crime violations are complex and it’s best to wait for court adjudication first in lieu of holding mini-criminal trials during a parole violation hearing.
