1. Assistance during supervision, urgent aftercare of discharged offenders
When the rehabilitation of probationers and parolees could be hindered by illness, injury, lack of a proper abode or occupation or other reasons, probation officers and volunteer probation officers give advice and guidance so that probationers and parolees are able to receive the necessary support from public welfare facilities. If such support cannot be obtained immediately or the support provided by such facilities is deemed to be inadequate, probation offices provide specific support. This is referred to as assistance during supervision.
Assistance during supervision includes (1) temporary aid provided by probation offices, such as providing food and clothing, medical treatment, travel expenses to the place of next abode and (2) continuous aid through entrustment to halfway houses and individuals. Table II-23 shows the number of parolees and probationers who received assistance in 2000.
