There were four offenders convicted of public safety violations released on parole in Chicago during 2018, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by the West Cook News.

The data shows that two men and two women were among the parolees. The median age of the parolees sentenced for public safety violations was 37. The youngest parolee was a 25-year-old man sentenced in 2018, and the oldest was a 66-year-old man sentenced in 2018.

The offender who was incarcerated the longest was Raven T. Harris. She was convicted of a public safety violation in 2018 when she was 27 years old. She is now 28.

Under state law, paroled offenders are still in legal custody of the IDOC, meaning they can be taken back to a correctional center at any time if the state has probable cause or a warrant.
