Organization Chart


The mission of the Parole Board is achieved by: identifying those parole eligible offenders for whom there is sufficient indication that confinement has served its purpose and setting conditions of parole; providing transitional planning, supervision, and assistance to the offender and direction to services that promote responsible conduct; enforcing compliance with parole conditions through the timely application of a graduated scale of sanctions including a return to confinement; developing partnerships with federal, state, county and non-profit organizations in an effort to provide a continuum of risk reduction programming to offenders that reduces recidivism, maximizes resources, eliminates duplication and demonstrates fiscal responsibility; striving to understand the concerns of victims and the general public, and giving full consideration to these concerns when setting policy and making parole decisions.
