The New Zealand Parole Board puts public safety at the forefront of every decision it makes.

Parole is the managed release of a prisoner, subject to conditions set by the Board.

Compliance is closely monitored by Community Corrections, and a person can be recalled to prison if their conditions aren't met.

The Board also considers compassionate release applications and imposes conditions for offenders on Extended Supervision Orders.
