About


Project Protocol allows you to rate your parole officers.

The Problem
The parole system lacks transparency, consistency, and accountability.
The Department of Parole Operations is responsible for guiding people coming out of prison on their journey to re-entry. In addition to keeping tabs on someone, the parole officer has the power to return them to prison for violating the terms of their parole conditions. However, this power is often abused and the behavior of parole officers can be inconsistent and unpredictable. When a situation happens, we often cannot hold them accountable—there is no accountability process that doesn't come with the threat of retaliation. If we try to speak out about our situation, we are often subjected to even more surveillance and incarceration. 

This looming threat of re-incarceration causes high levels of stress for people navigating the parole system. This makes the transition into the community difficult for already vulnerable people. 

The Concept
Rate your parole officer.
Project Protocol is an Android and iPhone app that allows you to rate and view the ratings of your parole officer. It allows you to predict the behavior of your parole officer and better prepare yourself for this new relationship.

All ratings are anonymous and we store and use your data based on our Ethical Principles. Rating questions include: "How helpful is your parole officer?" "Do you feel respected?" "Does this person care about your well being"?

The Solution
Transparency means accountability.
Lifting up the voices of the people impacted by the system will shine a light on all the harms of the system. 

We are partnering with people and organizations aligned with our principles to turn data into action. If you want to work with us to hold the parole system accountable for its harms and bring justice to the community, read our Ethical Principles and contact us.
