As an independent decision-making body, the Board receives information from a range of people, service providers and organisations, including the prisoner, Queensland Corrective Services, the Queensland Police Service, victims of crime, and community organisations. Whilst the Board scrutinizes the information it is provided, the Board is not an investigative body and has no such powers. However, the Board does have the power to request further information.
The Board maintains public confidence in the parole decision-making process through transparency in its processes and educating and communicating regarding the facts and myths about parole.
The Board is committed to working collaboratively with its stakeholders, and to continued and strengthened engagement to enhance its decision-making processes thereby helping to ensure community safety and facilitate the successful reintegration of prisoners back into the community.
