Abstract
Successful completion by an offender of a period of conditional release is not necessarily proof of his/her successful social reintegration. However, failure to complete a period of conditional release (parole or a mandatory/statutory supervision) amounts to a failure on the part of the offender to reintegrate into society. The successful completion of a period of conditional release by offenders depends on their compliance with the various conditions attached to their conditional release, and whether they manage to refrain from committing another offence – or at the very least manage not to get caught for committing one. Success on conditional release, it is generally assumed, depends in large part on the offenders themselves, but also on the quality of the supervision and assistance they receive.
