Any victim of any crime can send a written submission to the State Parole Authority to consider before a final decision is made about an offender’s parole.
Making a submission:
Submissions are optional and the purpose is to allow registered victims to request any conditions they feel should be imposed and to provide information to the SPA about the impact of parole, should it be granted.
Submissions are always kept confidential and not given to an offender without a victim’s consent.
Under the legislation, written submissions can be marked Sect 194 by a Judicial officer, which prevents it being made public or available to any party other than the Parole Authority. Sect 194 makes it impossible for the offender, their legal representative, NSW Community Corrections or anyone else to have knowledge or access to a victim’s submission.
If you wish to make a Submission to the State Parole Authority and need help or advice you can contact staff at the Victims Register on:
