The 2012 Executive Budget Document
Virginia Parole Board [ http://www.vadoc.virginia.gov/vpb/default.shtm ]Mission Statement
The Virginia Parole Board's mission is to protect public safety and contribute to a fair and effective justice system by ensuring that persons who remain a threat to society remain incarcerated and those who have been sufficiently punished and no longer present a risk are released to become productive citizens. The Parole Board is empowered to make decisions regarding discretionary release of those inmates who are parole eligible; to revoke parole and post-release supervision of those found to be in violation of the terms of their release and to investigate, prepare reports and advise the Governor on requests for executive clemency. The Board also reviews and makes decisions on petitions for geriatric release and reviews appeals of cases for those declared ineligible for parole under the three-time loser law.Operating Budget Summary
