Victim Information

The North Carolina Post-Release Supervision and Parole Commission is dedicated in its effort to provide information to victims.

Most victims are interested in how they can be aware and involved in the parole review process. The first step is to request notification.

Any victim who would like to be notified must submit a written request for notification of pending investigations or decisions in a case. Victims who are unsure if they are listed for notification should contact the commission at (919) 716-3010. It is very important for victims who wish to receive notification to contact the Commission of any address change so the notification data will remain accurate.

Victims may also be involved in the parole review process by submitting their opinions to the Commission concerning an upcoming parole review. There are two ways a victim may communicate with the Commission:

1. Victims may express their opinions about a case in writing at any time. They may also request that certain conditions be imposed on the offender upon release onto supervision. The letters are included in the inmate's file and the Commissioners take the letters into consideration during the decision-making process.
