Track the elite parole officers of New York's "Special Offenders Unit" as they keep tabs on their charges-some of the most dangerous parolees in America.
In the limbo between prison and freedom, parolees face the temptations of society but are bound by the restrictions of their release. This combination can sometimes lead to disastrous results. The difficult job of supervising these cons falls to parole officers.
Get an up-close look at the neither here-nor-there life of paroled prisoners with INVESTIGATIVE REPORTSÔ. Ride along with the 5 elite officers of New York's Special Offenders Unit, whose job it is to oversee the paroles of the "worst of the worst." Follow them as they bust violators, conduct curfew visits and shake down suspects in the aftermath of a horrendous rape and beating. See how the job of parole officers has become more and more enforcement oriented, and learn why these men wear bullet-proof vests and carry cuffs and guns as they carry out their dangerous job. And hear the incredible stories of their most difficult and dangerous moments.
