CDCR’s parole revocation process is expected to have transitioned to the 58 California Counties by July 1 of this year at which time the parole revocation process becomes a local court-based process in partnership with Parole.

The change is taking place under the leadership of the Division of Adult Parole Operations Director Daniel P. Stone and pursuant to the California Public Safety Realignment Act (AB 109/SB 1023).

Director Stone appointed Associate Director (A) Guillermo Viera Rosa as lead in this endeavor.

The change is taking place after extensive communications with the Administrative Office of the Courts, Community Corrections Partnerships, Board of County Supervisors, Superior Court Judges, District Attorneys, Sheriff’s Office, Public Defenders and others.

Master trainers were selected based on their knowledge and presentation skills to provide training of the court revocation process to parole field operations staff. This task is expected to be completed by the end of May.

A new dedicated computer program called the Parole Violation Disposition Tracking System (also known as “pivots”) is also schedule to be introduced to parole field operations staff beginning in June and is expected to be operational by July.

As with many new processes this transition has been at times intractable; however, the Division of Adult Parole Operations has embraced the challenge and is looking forward to its overall success.
