Indiana Parole Board

The Indiana Parole Board consists of five (5) members: the Chairman, Vice Chairman and three (3) members who are appointed by the Governor to serve four (4) year terms.

The Board has jurisdiction over all offenders who committed their crimes before October 1977 (referred to as “old code” offenders), and exercises discretionary parole release authority over them. The Board also has jurisdiction over all offenders who committed their crimes after October 1977 (referred to as “new code” offenders) whose release on parole is mandatory. When parole is violated, the Board makes discretionary decisions regarding the reinstatement of parole of all “new code” offenders whose parole has been revoked.

In addition, the Indiana Parole Board acts as a Clemency Commission for all capital cases and makes recommendations to the Governor concerning clemency or commutation requests.

The Indiana Parole Board is available to assist victims who have safety concerns regarding an offender’s parole release. If you have safety concerns, you may contact the Indiana Parole Board at 317-232-5673.

Parole Board Hearings

A Parole Board Hearing is a proceeding where the parole board allows the offender, victims, witnesses and other concerned parties to express their support for or opposition to the offender being paroled. There are two different parole Board Hearings involved in the parole process.

The public hearing is informal and welcomes any concerned party, including victims, witnesses and family members, to express support or opposition to the offender being paroled. You have the right to give a statement to the board, whether it is oral, written, videotaped or audio taped. You would not have to be present to enter a statement.

Anyone needing any special needs, such as an interpreter or video equipment, should contact the Victim/Witness Service Programs office at (317) 232-5749 at least 72 hours prior to the scheduled hearing. No dress code is required, but please keep in mind that you would be in a government facility and it is in your best interest to dress appropriately. There is no checkpoint, but Capital Police are located throughout the building for security purposes. You will need to check in with appropriate staff outside of the hearing room in order to give your name and relationship (e.g. victim, family, neighbor, etc.). At this time, you may request to speak to the board after the offender’s family and friends speak, if that would create more comfort for you.

There are two waiting rooms: one for visitors who support the parole and one for visitors who oppose the parole. When the offender’s name is called, both groups will enter the hearing room together, but will have separate rows of seating. The board will be seated at the front of the room and a video camera will be next to them. This camera will record the entire hearing; so please refrain from divulging personal information that you do not want exposed (i.e.; address, place of employment, etc.). The offender will not be present at the hearing, but he/she would be able to obtain this information on his/her own time.

The facility hearing is the offender’s time to speak to the board and it is held at the location of the offender. The victim may attend this proceeding, but will not have the opportunity to speak about or oppose anything said in the hearing. It is a privilege for anyone to visit the facility and there will be expected guidelines. Everyone attending a Parole Board hearing must dress appropriately. Those planning to speak before the Board should dress in a manner respectful of a criminal justice tribunal. Anyone planning to attend as interested observers shall be fully dressed, and must avoid any sort of revealing clothing. Each facility will have prohibitions against indiscreet or otherwise unsafe attire. Expect to enter through a checkpoint entrance. You could be asked to leave at any time, should the authorities find a reason. With that in mind, you can call the Victim/Witness Service Program office for more details on attending this hearing.

After both hearings are held, the board will make a decision whether or not to grant parole to the offender. You are more than welcome to call the Victim/Witness Service Program office in order to obtain the decision, which will be made no sooner than one week after the facility hearing. The Victim/Witness Service Program office will make contact with you at that time if requested.
