The Governor with the consent of the Senate, appoints the Commis-
sioner. He shall not be less than thirty years of age and shall have
been a registered voter of the State of Maryland for at least four years
pnor to his appointment. He is appointed for a term of two years
from the first Monday in May next ensuing his appointment, Ch. 29,
Acts 1922 (Maryland Code 1924, Article 41, Sections 46-56).
It shall be the duty of the said Commissioner to investigate and to
collect all information that may aid him in determining the advisabil-
ity of recommending to the Governor the conditional pardon (parole)
of all persons sentenced for one year or more to any penal mstitution
of the State upon the expiration of one-third of the term for which
each of such persons has been sentenced.
In pursuing his investigations, the Commissioner is assisted by a
staff of six persons. He has been granted the power to summons wit-
nesses and if necessary to examine them on their oath. The Commis-
sioner, the Secretary and the Parole Officers appointed by the Commis-
sioner, shall have the power to arrest, without warrant within the
State, those violating the conditions of their parole. Furthermore the
Commissioner shall have visitorial powers over every institution
receiving aid from the State, City or private sources, to which prison-
ers, whether adults or minors, are committed.
Being the only agency available for such purposes, the Department
also undertakes the investigation of all applications to thc Governor,
for Pardons to restore citizenship and for reduction in sentences im-
posed by the Courts, where applications are filed with the Governor
or this Department. In this as in the matter of applications for con-
ditional pardons (parole) only such cases as are acted upon favorably
by the Commissioner are forwarded to the Governor for review and
final action.
For detailed information of duties and jurisdiction of the Parole
Commissioner, see Annotated Code of Maryland (Bngby) Article 41,
Section 46-56.
