The NSW State Parole Authority (SPA) is an independent, statutory authority governed by the Crimes (Administration of Sentences) Act 1999 (CAS Act).
The Act, amended in 2018, primarily prescribes community safety as the SPA’s paramount consideration when making parole decisions.
Section 135 of the CAS Act states:
“The Parole Authority must not make a parole order directing the release of an offender unless it is satisfied that it is in the interests of the safety of the community.”
