The Prisoner Review Board is interested in knowing the view of citizens concerning the possible parole of these residents. Any citizen who would like to express comments on these residents, 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 STREET, SUITE 300;  TOPEKA, KS 66603.

Residents 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.
