The Inmate Release Information reference service standard will allow requesting agencies, e.g. fusion centers, arresting agency, law enforcement, probation, parole, state criminal history repository, prosecutor, public defender, victim advocacy organizations, etc, to request summary or detailed information regarding an inmate’s supervision profile and release from a partnering corrections organization.  In turn, this is expected to facilitate enhanced situational awareness for the justice and public safety communities by providing timely notification of inmate reentry.
