​Questions about...

Pennsylvania Parole Board staff answer many questions on various topics on a day-to-day basis. Many questions are related to the overall parole process.; however, some of the questions asked are not under the jurisdiction or administration of the Parole Board.

There are two suggested ways to receive answers to your questions. First, review this section of the website. The Parole Board has provided information on many common areas of questions the Parole Board is often asked and the answers are the same because of a current law, policy or procedure, regardless of who has asked the question.

If your question or issue is not addressed in this section and involves another subject area different from these topics, please use the Contact Us icon at the bottom of this web page to submit your question and contact information.

PLEASE NOTE: The Parole Board does not provide individual parole case status information on any form of social media. Please do not use Facebook or Twitter to ask your question(s). Make certain you include the name of the person you are writing about, identifying information such as a Department of Corrections' institutional number or parole number and/or date of birth for proper verification. Your email will either be answered by the Parole Board or FORWARDED to the correct office/agency who will need to respond directly to you. The only public document the Parole Board can provide is a copy of the Board Action, which is the official document that either grants/denies parole. Please allow 7-10 business days for a response.
