Keeping Paroled Offenders Out of Trouble

The relief after a prison release is often followed by a hard landing: no job, no home, no safety net and a system too overloaded to help parolees from going back to jail. Jason Hardy was once a probation and parole officer and is now a special agent for the FBI, and he joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the often-ignored world of post-incarceration and his ideas for true system reform. His book is “The Second Chance Club: Hardship and Hope After Prison.”
