DENVER (AP) - An audit of Colorado's parole system is being expanded to review whether budget issues are keeping parole officers from placing some high-risk parolees under intensive supervision.
The parole division has been under scrutiny since the killing of prisons chief Tom Clements by a parolee in March.
Documents obtained by the Denver Post through an open-records request show that the state has in some cases been unable to place or keep parolees under intensive supervision because of caps or budget limitations on the program.
