Dubbed “Operation Efficiency,” the initiative involved two teams of officers from each of the three agencies visiting the residencies of all offenders under community supervision.
Officials from Georgia’s parole board stated goals of the operation included increasing law enforcement visibility in the community, determining if criminal activity was taking place and ensuring public safety.
A spokesman for the state parole office said 13 face-to-face contacts were made with offenders, and one arrest was made when police charged one state probationer with a misdemeanor.
Officials note last fiscal year, the Parole Board conducted about 200 joint law enforcement operations that typically involved local police, sheriff departments, state probation and the U.S. Marshals Service.
