State Parole Authority

​​State Parole Authority​​

The SPA makes decisions about releasing inmates safely on parole and setting conditions. It also can revoke parole, or revoke, substitute or reinstate Intensive Corrections Orders (ICO).

The SPA orders the supervised, conditional release of offenders from custody only when a sentence is greater than three years with a non-parole period.
