Writing a Parole Support Letter to the Parole Board
If you would like to send a letter to the Parole Board about an inmate who is being considered for parole, your letter needs to include the following:
• The inmate’s first and last name
• The inmate’s inmate/institution number (is 2 letters first followed by 4 numbers)
• The state correctional facility where they are housed
The Parole Board must have the inmate’s name AND some other form of identifying information such as the date of birth or the inmate/institution number or parole number to make certain the letter is placed in the correct individual’s file.
• The inmate’s parole number (is 3 or 4 numbers followed by 1 or 2 letters)
If you do not know the person’s inmate number or the institution where they are currently incarcerated, you may find this information on the Department of Corrections' website INMATE/PAROLEE LOCATOR
. This site will provide both the inmate/institution number and the state correctional facility where they are housed for you to use in your letter.
The final letter can be mailed or emailed to:
PA Parole Board | Records and Administration Office
1101 South Front Street | Suite 5300
Harrisburg, PA 17104-2517
