Many factors are considered when termination of parole is determined. When an offender is discharged from prison and reenters the community, he or she remains on federal parole for a specified period of time. During the reentry process, many types of supports are incorporated into the reentry plan along with risk assessments, to measure the level and predictors of the offender reoffending again. The most important step after reentry occurs is determining an appropriate time to release the offender completely from judicial supervision.
