About Us

The Parole Board’s mission is to promote public safety through supervised, conditional release of inmates to the community, so that a successful transition from confinement to discharge from parole provides a basis for continued responsible conduct. We serve the public, victims, inmates, parolees, and petitioners throughout the Commonwealth by conducting face-to-face parole release hearings, providing notice and assistance to victims, supervising parolees in the community, and providing reentry services to those leaving custody with no mandated post-release supervision.
