​Update: USGE’s position on CSC’s DRAOR pilot project

National President Stan Stapleton encourages community and institutional parole officers to participate in training related to the CSC’s pilot project known as DRAOR (Dynamic Risk Assessment for Offender Reintegration). 

While members are encouraged to take part in the training, USGE has told CSC that resources for each site involved in the DRAOR pilot must be in place before USGE members can participate. If members are eventually ordered to participate, they should not refuse, and are advised to file a grievance. 

USGE is concerned that if the issue of proper resources for each site involved in the project is not resolved, the pilot will unfairly increase workloads for employees who are forced to participate.
