There were 38 offenders released on parole during 2018 that live in Park Forest zip codes, according to Illinois Department of Corrections data obtained by South Cook News.

The data shows that 37 men and one woman were released in Park Forest. The median age of the parolees was 34. The youngest parolee was a 20-year-old woman sentenced for a crime against a person in 2017, and the oldest was a 56-year-old man sentenced for a crime involving drugs in 2015.

The offender who had been incarcerated the longest was Keith Lipscomb. He was convicted of homicide in 2003 when he was 39 years old. He is now 54.
