Kentucky Parole Board
The Kentucky Parole Board conducts hearings within the eligibility requirements established by statute and regulation that consider the question of parole for convicted offenders. As part of the Criminal Justice System, The Kentucky Parole Board is committed to the safety and protection of all citizens of the Commonwealth by rendering fair and impartial release and revocation decisions which serve the best interest of the public, crime victims and those who are otherwise defenseless against the criminal element of our society.
The Kentucky Parole Board is composed of nine full-time members and two part-time members. Board members are appointed by the Governor to four-year staggered terms. Each board member must have had at least five years of actual experience in the fields of penology, corrections work, law enforcement, sociology, law, education, social work, medicine, or a combination thereof, or must have served five years previously on the Parole Board. The board members are required to give full time to their duties. The Parole Board conducts approximately 16,000 hearings annually within the eligibility requirements established by statute and regulation that consider the question of parole for convicted offenders.
