Biographical/Historical Note:     The Parole Commission was first established in 1941 (Ch. 20519, Laws of Florida) and has, at various times, been called the Probation and Parole Commission or the Parole and Probation Commission.  Operating under Chapter 947, Florida Statutes, the stated purpose of the Parole Commission is to provide for public safety and protect the rights of victims by administering effective post-incarceration services including offender release, offender revocation, clemency, and victim assistance.

    To carry out its goals, the Commission is authorized to (1) determine what persons shall be placed on parole or conditional medical release; (2) fix the time, terms, and conditions of parole or conditional medical release; (3) determine violations of parole and what action should be taken with reference to such violations, including  revoking supervision terms of offenders; (4) report to the Board of Pardons all circumstances relating to persons under consideration for parole; and (5) make investigations necessary for the carrying out of these duties, including clemency investigations and administration, providing investigative information and support to the Board of Executive Clemency.  The Parole Commission is comprised of three members who are appointed by the Governor and Cabinet and confirmed by the Senate.
