An eye opening and sobering look into our parole system by a former insider a book that everyone should read Hardy’s client stories broke my heart So many good people who become POs with intentions to make a difference in their clients’ lives find themselves beat buried under mountains of case files and within a system fraught with budgetary constraints and too few advocates The prisons are where the government money is thrown not in rehabilitation efforts We are better than this America

A former parole officer shines a bright light on a huge yet hidden part of our justice system through the intertwining stories of seven parolees striving to survive the chaos that awaits them after prison in this illuminating and dramatic book Prompted by a dead end retail job and a vague desire to increase the amount of justice in his hometown Jason Hardy became a parole officer in New Orleans at the worst possible moment Louisiana’s incarceration rates were the highest in the US and his department’s caseload had just been increased to 220 “offenders” per parole officer whereas the national average is around 100 Al. 45 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️At first glance this book looks like something you might pass on and you might say “I don’t want to read about probation and parole” But then you might pausetaking a closer look at it and think about that one person you know or heard about that’s in prison and decide I’ll just take a look And I hope that happens because I think you’ll enjoy it My husband had a life sentence and has now been out of prison for over 15 years He has the privilege of working for and representing a place for the formally incarcerated to transition back into society It can be done and it’s a big job but it can be done one person at a time This book is well written and gives us a glimpse of the system at large The author takes us through his daily duties and lets us meet all the challenges he sees and the endless struggles Addiction poverty and the homeless It’s a compelling story with his honest view of the system and I hope you struggle with it as much as I did I definitely recommend this book and want to thank the publisher for allowing me to read this This was a NETGALLEY gift and all opinions are my own
