The Board may hold progress hearings for offenders it has released, to monitor their compliance with their release conditions. Progress hearings must be held within the following timeframes:
- Offenders on parole or compassionate release can only be required to attend progress hearings for up to a year post-release.
- Offenders released at their statutory release date can only be required to attend progress hearings for up to six months from the date of their release.
Progress hearings cannot be held more often than every three months.
The Board may vary the offender's conditions at a progress hearing or impose new release conditions, ask the Department of Corrections for a progress report on the offender’s compliance, and may require the offender to attend a progress hearing in-person.
The Board may also make an interim recall order at a progress hearing.
