Should the board decide to release an offender they are released to parole under certain conditions. Conditions of parole are designed to protect victims and the community, and to reduce the likelihood for offending behaviour. There are two categories of parole conditions: core and additional. Every parole order is subject to all of the core conditions as set out in the Crimes (Sentence Administration) Act 2005) and the accompanying regulations.
Additional conditions of parole that are appropriate for the individual are set by the board. For example, the board may determine that a parolee is not to visit a particular suburb, associate with particular people or contact or cause to be contacted victims of the parolee's offences.
The board may vary the additional conditions of a parole order upon application.
