Our Mission

The Commission of Pardons and Parole will contribute to public safety by utilizing sound, professional judgment, and evidence-based parole decision-making practices.


The Commission of Pardons and Parole is composed of 37 staff members and seven (7) part-time Commissioners. Parole in Idaho is not presumptive – the Commissioners retain full discretion in parole decision making. In addition to making decisions as to whether to grant, deny, or revoke parole, the Commission also decides whether to grant petitions for pardon, commutation, and restoration of firearm rights. Commission hearing sessions are held in Boise during a 2-3 week period each month and are open to the public.


Our office is currently under construction. During this time we have limited staff for face-to-face inquiries. If you need assistance please email us at, or call (208) 334-2520 and we will be happy to assist you. Bond payments and letters and other documents related to persons incarcerated or on parole can be placed in the mailbox at our Elder Street entrance and staff will collect them daily during normal business hours.
We appreciate your patience while our building is under construction!
