Board Composition. The Adult Parole Board is an independent agency that reports directly to the governor. The board consists of seven members appointed by the Governor and approved by the Executive Council. Members serve five-year terms, and may serve no more than two consecutive terms. By law, three board members must preside over each hearing. The board is part-time, which means that members report for duty only when scheduled for hearings. Board members are always available to issue arrest warrants for parole violators, and to consult with parole officers regarding problem cases.
Parole hearings are generally held on Thursdays in the Parole Board Hearings Room located at the New Hampshire State Prison for Men in Concord.
Parole revocation hearings are generally held as needed on Tuesdays in the same location.
These dates and times can change based on necessity. Members of the public wishing to attend parole hearings must contact the Adult Parole Board in advance.
The standard parole conditions that apply to all parolees can be found in the Adult Parole Board's Administrative Rules. Section 401.02.
