Toward Safer Communities

Welcome to the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and
Parole's website.



to Victims


On this site you can find resources to further your understanding of the responsibility of the state parole system, the vital role it contributes to community safety, the research that drives the process, and the Board’s reentry efforts and solid supervision practices.

Through effective parole decisions and successful reentry of offenders our goal is to reduce the likelihood that an offender will commit another crime and return to prison.

  Who do I call?
