Prisoner Review Board
Under the indeterminate release structure, the Prisoner Review Board  determines when an incarcerated inmate will be released. Furthermore, the Board establishes supervision conditions of parole and conditional release, discharges successful parole and conditional releasees from supervision per the recommendation of the parole officer and revokes the release of those who have violated the conditions of their supervision.
On July 1, 1993, the legislature enacted the sentencing guidelines system. In this process, the Prisoner Review Board gained the responsibility of establishing conditions of supervision for inmates released on post-release supervision. The board is also responsible for revoking those individuals who have violated their conditions of release. Under both systems, the Prisoner Review Board has the responsibility to review executive clemency applications and make recommendations to the Governor regarding the clemency.
