State Parole Authority

NSW State Parole Authority​​

The State Parole Authority (SPA) makes decisions about releasing inmates safely on parole and setting additional parole conditions. 

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.

The SPA can revoke any parole order made in New South Wales, whether ordered by the Court or the SPA. 

It can also revoke and reinstate the community based Intensive Corrections Orders (ICO).
