Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision > Web site
The Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision works in partnership with the Department of Corrections and local supervisory authorities to protect the public and reduce the risk of repeat criminal behavior. The board imposes prison terms and makes release decisions on offenders whose criminal conduct occurred prior to November 1, 1989. The board sets conditions of supervision for all offenders being released from prison, imposes sanctions for violations of supervision and determines whether discharge from parole supervision is compatible with public safety. Discharge from supervision for offenders sentenced under sentencing guidelines occurs automatically upon expiration of the statutory period of post-prison supervision. The board’s decisions are based on applicable laws, victims’ interests, public safety and the recognized principles of offender behavioral change.
The governor appoints the members for four-year terms and also determines the chair and vice-chair. The full-time board was authorized in 1969. In 1975, the board was enlarged to five members, with the stipulation that at least one member must be a woman. The membership was reduced to three in 1992.
