Share This Post

On September 17, 2021, the Less Is More: Community Supervision Revocation Reform Act was signed into law in New York. It restricts the use of incarceration for breaking noncriminal parole rules (“technical violations”), bolsters due process for people accused of violations, and provides “earned-time” credits to those who follow the rules. The new law also requires the state’s Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) to provide people on parole access to community-based drug treatment and mental health services.
