General Hearing Information

Hearings can be held any day of the week, Monday through Friday.

Parole hearings are conducted via video connection between the main office and the institution.   

Pardon hearings are scheduled and conducted via video connection between the main office and the applicants.

Each hearing consists of a three-member panel of the Board and a parole officer, and when appropriate, the Office of Victim Services (OVS) and the victim(s) and/or their family.  Individuals are allowed to express to the Board why they believe they should be paroled or pardoned.  The panel then asks questions.  Once the panel is satisfied, they will deliberate in open session and give their decision.

All hearings are scheduled ONLY when all information relative to the case(s) is received.

Hearings can be viewed by the public via live stream through links posted on the homepage, which is updated daily.   The schedule of future hearings can be found on the agency's Hearing and Event Calendar.
