Key recommendations of the Queensland Parole System Review (Sofronoff Review) were for the establishment of a new, independent and professional parole board, including the appointment of a full time Parole Board President, Deputy Presidents and Professional Members.
On 3 July 2017, Parole Board Queensland commenced operations and is solely responsible for all decision-making with respect to parole applications, amendments, suspensions and cancellations in Queensland. Parole Board Queensland is an independent statutory body.
Parole Board Queensland has replaced the three previous parole boards; the Queensland Parole Board, Southern Queensland Regional Parole Board and Central and Northern Queensland Regional Parole Board.
As per Section 242E of the Corrective Services Act 2006, the Minister may make guidelines about policies to help Parole Board Queensland in performing its functions.
