Tribunals and Boards

The Department of the Attorney General's Prisoners Review Board administrative branch administers the following three boards that make decisions on the release of offenders and mentally impaired accused people in Western Australia:

Prisoners Review Board

The Prisoners Review Board (PRB) is an independent statutory body governed by the Sentence Administration Act 2003. The PRB replaced the Parole Board in January 2007 as part of reforms involving the management of prisoners in Western Australia. 

The Prisoners Review Board is responsible for all decisions about release on parole. The board also considers prisoner requests for re-entry release orders and re-socialisation programs. Approvals for some board decisions are required by the Minister and the Governor. More information on the Prisoners Review Board is available from its website.
