HARTFORD, CT — Life On Parole, a documentary that takes an inside look at Connecticut’s efforts to change the parole system and reduce the number of people returning to prison, will air on CPTV at 10 p.m. tonight.
In collaboration with The New York Times, PBS’s Frontline follows former prisoners in Hartford as they navigate their first year on parole.
The program investigates the role of parole officers in whether a parolee successfully integrates into society and how they must learn to navigate an evolving system that requires a complex mix of social skills beyond just enforcement of the rules.
