Abstract: The mission of the Board is to protect the public, use agency and community resources to help parolees attain self- sufficiency, and supervise parolees and return those to prison who are not law-abiding.

Other topics covered include victims services, parole decision guidelines, rules for consideration of life sentence inmates, substance abuse counseling, and strategic planning.
