In 2003, the Board of Parole became a separate operating agency. The Board conducts executive session inmate hearings for all Wyoming felony inmates, which entails two hearings per month during most months of the year. Additionally, the Board conducts quarterly public business meetings each year.
The mission of the Board is to conduct prompt, fair, impartial hearings on the matters brought to its attention and take appropriate action. Consideration will be given to public safety, victims, and the treatment and control of the offender.
