  • the supervised, conditional release of offenders from custody when a sentence is greater than three years with a non-parole period, otherwise known as parole
  • determining if and how a parole order should be revoked
  • determining if and how an Intensive Correction Order, Home Detention Order or Periodic Detention Order is revoked.
