DENVER — Colorado parole officers must now respond to alerts from parolees' electronic monitoring equipment within two hours, after a review that followed the death of the state's prisons chief.

Parole records show that white supremacist gang member Evan Ebel slipped out of his ankle bracelet five days before Department of Corrections Director Tom Clements was killed at his home. Ebel is a suspect in Clements' death.

Colorado's governor announced a sweeping review of the state's prison and parole operations last week. Corrections officials announced the change in its electronic monitoring policy Tuesday.

Investigators are trying to determine whether Clements' slaying was an isolated attack or done at the direction of top members of the 211 Crew.
