The Parole Board

Offenders are usually released at the half way point, and serve the remainder of their sentence subject to licence supervision in the community.

The Parole Board is an independent body that carries out risk assessments on prisoners serving life sentences and indeterminate sentences for public protection, to determine whether they can be safely released into the community. It can also carry out assessments for prisoners who are eligible for early release.
