CT: Rell to use stimulus funds on parole board


-Associated Press

HARTFORD, Conn. – Connecticut plans to use $600,000 in federal stimulus funds to upgrade the information system used by the state’s parole board.

Rell’s office said Sunday that the new system will better manage the information shared by the state Board of Pardons and Paroles and the Department of Correction, and help improve the supervision of offenders released into communities.

The upgraded system will allow parole officers to use their laptop computers in the field to access the most current information on offenders under their supervision.

The governor’s office says the current system is out of date, and relies on 15-year-old technology.
