and prepares such reports as may be re-
quired by the Governor concerning persons
who may make application for pardon or
commutation of sentence or clemency. The
Division makes such investigations as may
be required by the Uniform Out-of-State
Parolee Supervision Act concerning parolees
and probationers from other states now
living in Maryland. Finally, the Division
makes investigations, reports and recom-
mendations with respect to applications for
review of criminal sentences as directed by
the Court of Special Appeals (Code 1957,
1973 Repl. Vol., Art. 26, sees. 130-136).

pervision Act.

worthy individuals unable to obtain their
own; an Alcoholism Rehabilitation and Nar-
cotics Program which aids those so addicted;
and Family Consultations which provide
counseling assistance in family and marital
problems While rendering these and other
services, each Parole and Probation agent
serves as a counselor and makes appropriate
referrals to other agencies, public and pri-
vate, to facilitate rehabilitation, bearing in
mind that the protection of society and the
rehabilitation of the offender are primary
