Kansas Parole Board

Mission Statement

Consistent with the principles of evidence based practices, parole privilege shall be extended to those offenders who demonstrate suitability by having served incarceration time set forth by the courts and who have demonstrated a reduction in risk to re-offend such that re-victimization is minimized and rehabilitation and successful reentry are maximized; similarly, parole suitability shall be rescinded in cases where an offender demonstrates increasing risk in the community.

Kansas Sentencing Structure – Determinate Sentences

Offenders sentenced under the determinate sentencing structure are not released under the Parole Board’s discretion, therefore, they rarely meet with the Parole Board prior to release from a prison setting. Indeterminate sentenced persons still require Board action.

Prior to an offender’s release, the Parole Board establishes special conditions of supervision by conducting a file review and assessing:

offender’s risk areas and needs

programmatic accomplishments

institutional behavior

pattern of crime

input from victims

This review process commences six months prior to an offender’s projected guidelines release date and may be revisited several times within that six month time frame as new and/or amended information becomes available.

Specific treatment assessment by providers elicits recommended treatment

Parole Board wording of conditions of supervision allow supervision staff to use the provider’s treatment recommendation

Do not need to return to Board to change wording of conditions

Use treatment recommendations & conditions to respond to violations as an intervention in behavior

The Bridge with Victim Services

The Kansas Parole Board works closely with the Kansas Department of Corrections Office of Victim Services to facilitate notification processes, enhance confidential communication of victims’ concerns, implement conditions to promote victim safety, and continuously identify opportunities that improve policies and procedures to include the victims in the parole process.
