dc.description.abstract According to Correctional Services Act 111 of 1998, DCS has moral and legal responsibility over the parolees. Parolees are supposed to be reintegrated into the society, while still serving their sentences and ultimately become responsible citizens. Some of the parolees are unable to complete their parole sentences and end up re-offending. There are however some parolees who manage to complete their sentences successfully, despite the parole conditions and their personal circumstances. The researcher was interested in those parolees who completed their parole sentences successfully. The strengths perspective, together with other strength related theories, served as a theoretical lens that helped to identify and describe factors that enable parolees to complete their sentences successfully. A qualitative design and descriptive approach was employed. Semi-structured interviews were used to collect the data. A sample of 15 parolees who had completed their sentences successfully was identified. Data were analysed using Creswell’s approach. It was found that factors such as employment, educational qualification, job skills, personal qualities, support, relationships and networking enabled parolees to complete their sentences successfully. Recommendations are made based on the findings. en_US
