Ind. Gov't. - "To Work on Parole Boards, No Experience Necessary"

That is the heading to this article in the September issue of Governing, written by Katherine Barrett & Richard Greene. The intro:

The people who decide criminals’ freedom are often ill-equipped to make informed decisions. That’s where risk assessment tools come in, but they aren't always used.
Here is the website of the five-member Indiana Parole Board. IC 11-9-1-1 requires that to qualify for membership, a person must have at least a bachelor's degree, or 10 years of law enforcement experience. In addition, the person "must have the skill, training, or experience to analyze questions of law, administration, and public policy." Members shall devote full time to their duties.
