Parolees Pay Supervision and Victim Compensation Fees

In November 1984, the Board began collecting a charge for supervision from every parolee with a three-month or longer supervision term. The money was deposited into the state treasury general fund and is used by the Department of Corrections.

In September 1991, violent offenders who were on parole were required to contribute a monthly victim compensation fee to the Georgia Crime Victims Emergency Fund.

Parolees must pay either a $30 supervision fee or a $30 victim compensation charge each month, but not both.Parolees who, owing to specific impairments, may be unable to pay such installments without great difficulty for them or their families are not penalized. The supervising fee and victim compensation fee are set by the Board, which has power to alter them as long as they are similar across the state.
