The Prisoner Review Board hereby announces the schedule of public comment sessions to be held in September 2020.  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 October 2020. 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 in November 2020.  Meetings will be conducted on the dates and locations as indicated below: 

 *If planning to attend, please note that the following guidelines will be in place:-

- Adherence to social distancing practices

- Wearing masks 

- Limited to 2 people in the meeting room at a time to provide comments to the PRB regarding the offender's parole eligibility 

*Please note that plans to hold public comment sessions may change unexpectedly.  Please continue to refer to this site, which will be continually updated to reflect any additional updates.

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 STREET, 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.
