Scope and Content Note

This series consists of archival copies of the publicly accessible Web sites of the New York State Division of Parole.

B2153-07: This accretion consists of a copy of the the Division of Parole site produced on April 11, 2007, shortly after Governor George E. Pataki (1995-2006) left office. It contains information about the division's mission and organizational structure. The site includes a press release (2006), the Parole Handbook (2005), Rules and Regulations (2006), and forms for victims to request information about parolees (2006). It also contains information about the Board of Parole, the Victim Impact unit, employment opportunities in the division, the Executive Clemency Bureau (2006), as well as legislation that concerns parolees and a listing of the most wanted fugitives in New York State (2007).

Researchers should note that owing to the structure of the live site and the limitations of Web archiving technology, some of the information contained within this site could not be captured properly in 2007. Moreover, none of the links in the menu at the left side of the home page work properly.

This accretion also includes a December 19, 2006 copy of the New York's 100 Most Wanted Fugitives Web site captured on December 19, 2006. At the time it was copied, this site was maintained by the New York State Police; however, in early 2010, the Division of Parole assumed responsibility for maintaining it. It contains a listing of the hundred most wanted fugitives in New York State (2006). For each fugitive, there is an image, a brief physical description, and a summary of offenses. A listing of the most wanted fugitives who have been captured (2006) is also present. Also included is information about Project SAF-T (Statewide Anti-Fugitive Teams), which is coordinated by the New York State Police, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the New York City Police Department, and includes officers from the Division of Parole, local police departments, and county sheriffs' offices.

B2153-08: This accretion consists of a copy of the Division of Parole Web site produced on May 27, 2008, shortly after the resignation of Governor Eliot L. Spitzer (2007-2008).

It also contains information about the Board of Parole, the Victim Impact unit, employment opportunities in the division, the Executive Clemency Bureau (2008), as well legislation that concerns parolees and a listing of the most wanted fugitives in New York State (2008).

Researchers should note that owing to the structure of the live site and the limitations of Web archiving technology, some of the information contained within this site could not be captured properly in mid-2008. Moreover, none of the links in the menu at the left side of the home page work properly.

This accretion also includes a May 9, 2008 copy of the New York's 100 Most Wanted Fugitives Web site. At the time this copy was produced, this site was maintained by the State Division of Criminal Justice; however, the Division of Parole assumed responsibility for maintaining the site in 2010. It contains a listing of the hundred most wanted fugitives in New York State (2008). For each fugitive, there is an image, a brief physical description, and a summary of offenses. A listing of the most wanted fugitives who have been captured (2008) is also present. Also included is information about Project SAF-T (Statewide Anti-Fugitive Teams), which is coordinated by the New York State Police, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the New York City Police Department, and includes officers from the State Division of Parole, local police departments, and county sheriffs' offices.
