Produced for TV One by Towers Productions, Parole Diaries follows the parole officers of Indianapolis, Indiana and the parolees they work with every day. Being on parole is a high-stakes journey where one wrong move will put you straight back into prison. And being a parole officer is like having 100 kids that need your love and guidance. Let them down, and they could be lost forever.
This fascinating series offers an unflinching look at this uncelebrated, underappreciated corner of the criminal justice system and follows 6 dynamic parole officers through their most difficult and heart-wrenching cases.
High on stress and low on glamour, the work these officers do helps keep the country’s prisons from overcrowding and offers ex-prisoners a chance to straighten out their lives.
