Navigating the Justice System

The New Jersey State Parole Board (NJSPB), recognizes that a growing segment of our inmate/parole populations have served in the U.S. Military prior to their entering the Criminal Justice system. In New Jersey approximately 8 percent of parolees have served their country.

For those individuals, large numbers of this subset of offenders have medical or psychological issues that were identified either at point of discharge from military service and noted in the DD214, or subsequently noted within the documentation provided upon entry into the Criminal Justice system, (PSI from AOC/Probation, or from UMDNJ/DOC).

The NJSPB seeks to put in place a process in conjunction with the New Jersey Department of Corrections (NJDOC), and our other state, federal and local partner agencies, that will identify all inmates, parolees and probationers that have served in the U.S. Military, and provide many services: See link for brochure list of services.
