The mission of the Tennessee Board of
Parole is to minimize public risk
and promote lawful behavior by the prudent,
orderly release of adult offenders.
The Board of Parole is an independent agency of the State of Tennessee. It is composed of seven members who are appointed by the Governor. Member terms last six years and may be renewed upon the Governor's recommendation. Board members live and work in all three of Tennessee's Grand Divisions.
By statute, the Board has the authority to parole eligible offenders who have served a certain percentage of their sentences. It also has the authority to revoke parole privileges if offenders do not comply with supervision rules and standards set forth for them upon their release. Additionally, the Board considers requests for executive clemency and makes recommendations on those requests to the Governor.
