Some offenders are released from prison before the end of their sentence. Although the offender is released, they are still serving their sentence with conditions on their liberty. Most are released on parole or life licence.
The Parole Board is an independent body, which we sponsor, that works with its criminal justice partners to protect the public by risk assessing prisoners to decide whether they can be safely released into the community. Following the Criminal Justice Act 2003 and the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 it is only the most serious and dangerous offenders who go through the Parole Board process.
