If they are in for possession of an illegal substance, theft without violence, or a DUI situation that caused a death through mva should be released with community service, mental health assessments and check ins, along with two to eight mandatory meetings to ensure they will abide by laws going forward.
i also feel like it depends because if someone is stealing and gets released then it still is something fellow citizens have to worry about because i personally know i wouldn't like knowing a thief was released then have to worry about running into one.
maybe need more information on cost of electronic braclet but I think combo of house arrest, limited or controled access to others, drug testing, community service or commhnity work, educations/skill building along with mental health treatment might reduce the repeat offenders and volume of crime.
Yes, it is called parole. Perhaps one should have a chance at parole more often or earlier into their sentence if they are non-violent offenders but I assume the rules are the way they are to help the members of parole boards across Canada not to become overwhelmed.
I think they should be released by with a lot of supports. Most people don't commit crimes because they want to be criminals, they commit crimes out of desperation. If they had resources, supports, retraining, optional relocation, etc., it would be better for society to have more people contributing to communities in a positive way than in prison.
