Due to circumstances beyond the Commission’s control, all hearing dates and times are subject to change. Changes to the schedule will be updated on this page.
The Commission of Pardons and Parole holds hearings via Webex. Victims may testify virtually, and supporters may also testify if they have provided notice to the Commission five days prior to the hearing. For more information on attending hearings, Webex, daily hearings order, please see the information below. The public is strongly encouraged to use WebEx to attend the hearings, and Commissioners and inmates will also be appearing virtually.

Stratford Drive, Meridian, Idaho. If you would like to attend hearings in person at the ISP office, please contact the Commission at least 24 hours in advance at 208-334-2520.
