The State Board of Pardons and Paroles has been long recognized for its leadership role in the advocacy of victims' rights. They give the highest priority and greatest compassion to those citizens who are most affected by crime, survivors. The Parole Board wants all victims to know their parole system rights: to give the Board views about the crime and the offender, to find out what the Board is doing on the case, and upon request, to be notified of any planned parole. They also serve the citizens of Georgia by exercising the constitutional authority of executive clemency through informed decision-making, thereby ensuring public safety, protecting victims’ rights, and providing offenders with opportunities for positive change.
