The Board Decision will tell the inmate whether they have been granted or denied parole and the reasons for the decision.

If the parole decision grants parole, it will highlight the reasons for the approval. The Board Action also spells out the individual’s parole conditions.

Parole release is not immediate when an inmate receives a Board Action granting parole. There are several things that need to occur before the inmate is released to parole supervision. After parole is granted, the inmate needs to work with the institutional parole agent to determine what criteria from this list must be met before release:

  • Crime Victims’ Compensation Fund Payment
  • DOC RRRI Certification (if applicable)
  • Victim Awareness Class Completion (if applicable)
  • DNA Sample (if there is a past or present felony conviction)
  • Sex Offender’s Law Registration (if required)
  • Completed Programming (if noted)
  • Urinalysis
  • CCC Bed Date (if applicable)
  • Approved Home Plan
  • Release Orders from the Parole Board
  • Release Date from the Department of Corrections’ Institutional Parole Office

If the Board Decision contains conditions that must be fulfilled before an inmate is released, they must complete them before any release processing will begin. Inmates must also remain misconduct free. Any detainers or new charges may delay or invalidate an inmate’s parole.

A Decision granting Parole may include Board Imposed conditions. In addition all parolees, must comply with the Board's general conditions and any Parole Agent imposed conditions.
