|Agency Decision||Take no action|
|Agency Decision Summary||
To deny petition but to request any additional information to indicate the need for teleconferencing supervision. At the end of 2010, there were 396 persons certified to provide sex offender treatment. While the Board does not keep records on work sites, it believes that a number of those are employed by the Department of Corrections. Therefore, the Board was not convinced that teleconferencing was essential in order to have supervision available in all parts of the state.
