Among the components of the SDPSIA that impact the DOC are:. *A parolee who has a successful month on parole will be given that number of days off the end of his or her sentence. These credits cannot be revoked once earned. If a parolee has a misstep and violates his/her supervision agreement and the response to the violation is short of a revocation, the parolee will not receive credit for that month.
