Sisseton Wahpeton Agree With D.O.C. On Parolees

Some parolees who are working to reintegrate back into normal life can now do so closer to their families and homes.  

 The State of South Dakota has entered into an agreement with the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate that allows former prison inmates a chance to do parole at home.

The effort is part of broad reforms to the prison system in South Dakota that aim to reduce recidivism.
