About State Board of Pardons and Paroles

The State Board of Pardons and Paroles is a part of the executive branch of Georgia's government, constitutionally authorized to grant paroles, pardons, reprieves, remissions, commutations, and to restore civil and political rights.

Parole is the discretionary decision of the State Board of Pardons and Paroles to release a certain offender from confinement after he or she has served an appropriate portion of a prison sentence. Persons on parole remain under state supervision and control according to conditions which, if violated, allow for re-imprisonment.

“While I was at the Board of Pardons and Paroles, I got to go to different Parole and Pardon hearings! I often interacted with members of the Board. I also got to read homicide files, see real crime scene photos, and learn from other members of the team that worked at the Board. Everyone that worked there was willing to share all their knowledge with you, and most had previously had jobs in other fields of law enforcement or corrections. It was just a pool of knowledge and experience! It was incredible to be around so many knowledgeable people. ”
