The Lingo Difference
The Case for Increased Supervision
As the statistics roll in for 2020, we’re seeing a disturbing rise in violence all over the country. More inmates were released in 2020 on parole than have been in a long time due to the pandemic.
This is a major problem, because probation/parole offices haven’t had a chance to staff up and were already overwhelmed. Parolees slip through the cracks and especially in the midst of an opioid epidemic, we can’t afford to allow drug dealers to continue dealing when we have the means to help prevent this behavior.
Here at Lingo Consulting, we also strongly believe in giving nonviolent offenders a chance to prove they can be law-abiding citizens. Taxpayers shovel out about $50 - $100 a day to house an inmate in jail, whereas a judge can put them on GPS monitoring for a fraction of that cost, providing significant savings to the community.
An offender on parole has the opportunity to be employed, connect with their family/support network, and get away from “the life”. Without a GPS tracking device and a reliable analytics process, parolees/probationers get lost in the shuffle and struggle to get the support they need to make it on the outside. Supervising agents appreciate our services because they are expected to be social workers as well as detectives, but we can help shoulder the “detective” portion of their duties.
