Finance Finances SE3 Bv STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA (CP) It's becoming increasingly dit- licult to make a premature departure trom a Canadian penitentiary- legally or il- legallv This is indicated alter a spr- ing in which the number ot es- capes and violations ot tem- porary absences and paroles trom prisons almost made the situation a national joke Now figures show paroles are down drastically. At the same time the penitentiary service is watching closely its temporary absence program and one new svstem ot absences under which super- vision is greater than the past, has been instituted by the parole board Security at some peniten- tiaries has been increased are pretty quiet now a spokesman tor the penitentiaries service said last week Last June, after several highly publicized escapes and leave violations. Solicitor- General Warren Allmand an- nounced in the Commons revi- sions in the parole and leave system and security improve- ments Perhaps the most dramatic indication ol how tough it is to get out ol prison legally comes in figures tor full parole this vear MANY REJECTED Until the end ol July, 1.681 paroles had been granted and 2.650 applications had been re- jected Comparable figures in 1972 were 2 259 granted and 2.137 rejected In 1971 2.977 were granted and 1.597 denied and in the banner vear of 1970 the I igures were 2.906 and 1.414 The lessening number ot pa- roles comes as the prison population is growing at such a rate that the penitentiaries service is contemplating a building program A penitentiaries official said that the number of temporary absences are expected to be down by the end of the year In pait this will be due to a new- system ol parole that was in- stituted this summer in re- sponse to Mr. Allmand's an- nouncement ADD ITS HARDER This "temporary parole" is helping the parole board to take over trom the system-ol back-to-back leaves that the service had up until Mr Allmand's announcement Under that system the ser- vice would grant a series of leaves in a row to permit prisoners to go to wort and to attend school DRAWS CRITICS' FIRE Critics said the action was in violation ot the Peniten- tiaries Act which allows the seivice to grant three-and 15- day passes lor a vanetv ot reasons Mr Allmand said the parote board will have responsibility tor the new temporary system which started this summer Now those desiring to go to work or school can apply tor two kinds ot parole Day parole This iias been in ettect lor several years. Generally granted as a pielimmarv to full parole, it allows a prisoner to remain outside the prison tor a lew days Prisoners report back to prison or some torm ol hall-way house each night or lust on' weekends, depending on the circumstances Pi isoners must spend a cer- tain time in prison belore be- coming eligible for this type ot parole Temporary parole' Parole can be granted at any time Unlike day parole it is not a pielimmary to lull paiule and is granted' to deal with one particular situation A parole board spokesman said ex- amples ol temporary parole would be permitting a prisoner to go to school, to go to work lor a time in the bush or improve or to maintain his standing in his particular trade At the end of this parole a prisoner can be returned to to continue his sentence OWNER TRANSFERRED 1421 Scenic Drhe Luxurious, custom built split level, 1 bedrooms, 2 fireplaces 2'; baths, den, dining rocm large living room large front entrance Total develcpment approx 2860 sq "ft Attached garage, patio, pljs many more extras PRICE Phone 328-4266 for appointrrent.
