Public Comment Sessions

by CJ Perez last modified Apr 13, 2021 09:22 AM
Each month, the Prisoner Review Board offers multiple forums through which the general public, public officials, victims, and family or friends of an offender can comment either in support or opposition of parole suitability one month prior to an offender’s parole hearing.

Overview and Instructions for Written Comments

by CJ Perez last modified Aug 03, 2020 04:31 PM

The Prisoner Review Board conducts monthly Public Comment Sessions in the cities of Derby, Topeka and Kansas City.  These sessions provide an opportunity to allow victims, family, public officials, community members, and other interested persons to express their support, opposition, concern, or comments regarding the potential parole of offenders who are scheduled for parole hearings the following month.

In addition to the Board members, a representative from the KDOC Office of Victim Services will be in attendance at each session to provide instructions and assistance. 

Notice of the Public Comment Sessions and a list of parole eligible offenders are posted at: Public Comment Sessions.  Public officials including District Attorneys, Victim/Witness Coordinators and other related correctional agencies across the State also receive notice of Public Comment Sessions.  Victims registered through the Department of Corrections Office of Victim Services will receive direct and confidential notification of these sessions (K.S.A. 74-7335). 

Instructions for completing a written comment form

Please use the offender's name, number and facility if known.  On the relationship line, please note your association to the offender.  Use the comment lines to provide the Board information not already included in the offender's file.  The Board will have information available on institutional adjustment and programs, therefore you will not need to cover these areas unless you have additional information.

Commenting in opposition of parole:

  • Please discuss the present physical, psychological, emotional and/or financial impact of the offenders actions against you, your family member and/or your friend.
  • State any special conditions you would like the Board to consider in the event that the offender is granted parole.

Commenting in support of parole:

  • Please list specific ways in which you can provide assistance to the offender in the community if parole is granted (i.e. residence, job, transportation).
  • Discuss changes you have observed in the offender.
  • Note any of the offender's potential risk areas or concerns.
  •  

The Public Comment Form is provided in portable document format (.pdf) to allow you the option to download, print, fax, mail or e-mail your comments to the Prisoner Review Board. 

The Online Public Comment Form may be used to electronically send your comments to the Prisoner Review Board.

by CJ Perez last modified Mar 23, 2021 02:47 PM
UPDATE: In a continued effort to be more accessible to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, the March 2021 public comment sessions will be conducted using a Zoom Webinar platform. Sessions will be offered on March 10th and March 24th, 2021. Please be advised that the Prisoner Review Board will not be hosting in-person sessions at specific venues during the month of March. Those interested in attending or submitting correspondence to the Board may do so by registering and joining the scheduled Zoom Webinar and/or by mailing written comments to the PRB address included in the information below. Please utilize the Public Comment Forms in support or opposition in regard to offenders included on the April docket.

Please continue to watch this website for updates to include the Zoom link and instructions on registering for an upcoming session.

The Prisoner Review Board hereby announces the schedule of public comment sessions to be held in March 2021 via Zoom Webinar.  These specific comment sessions are held so that comments can be received from any interested citizens concerning inmates who are entitled by law to a parole hearing during the month of April 2021.   The attached list shows the county of convictions, which is not necessarily the inmate’s home, nor the county to which the inmate would return if granted parole. If parole is granted, the earliest the inmate could be released from incarceration would be May 2021.  

IMPORTANT:  The Zoom meeting link included below will serve as your personal registration for the upcoming  March 24th public comments session.  Please follow the prompts within the registration page for confirmation and additional details.

Zoom Webinar  Zoom Webinar 

 The Prisoner Review Board is interested in knowing the view of citizens concerning the possible parole of these inmates. Any citizen who would like to express comments on these inmates, but is unable to attend one of the Public Comment Sessions, may send a letter to: KANSAS DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, PRISONER REVIEW BOARD; 714 SW JACKSON, SUITE 300;  TOPEKA, KS 66603.

Inmates are required by law to receive a hearing when they become parole eligible. Parole eligibility is not necessarily the same as parole suitability. In determining parole suitability, the Parole Board considers the following ten areas: 1) crime; 2) prior criminal history; 3) program participation; 4) disciplinary record; 5) reports of physical/mental examinations; 6) comments received from the victim, the public and criminal justice officials; 7) prison capacity; 8) input from staff where offender is housed; 9) proportionality to sentence guidelines; and 10) risk factors revealed by any risk assessment
