The Tennessee Board of Parole provides services to crime victims who are navigating the parole process. Crime victims have the right to be notified of parole hearings involving offenders in their case(s). However, victims must register with the Board of Parole to receive these services.

In accordance with Tennessee law, the Board of Parole Victim Services Division will not release any identifying information on registered victims of crime, their family members and/or registered interested members of the public. All information is kept confidential. Their key goal is to assure victims’ legal rights are being upheld throughout the parole process.

The mission of the Tennessee Board of Parole Victim Services Division is to provide information, assistance, and support to victims of crime and other concerned parties in order to participate fully in the parole process. These services will be administered with respect and compassion and help lessen the negative experience of victimization.

If you would like to be registered for notifications of parole hearings, decisions, and potential release on community supervision or have any questions, you may contact a MADD Victims Services Specialist for assistance.
