Seeking information about a prisoner?
Family, friends, legal representatives
Due to strict legislative provisions in the Corrections Act 1986, the Board is unable to provide information without authorisation from the prisoner.
To gain authorisation, contact the prisoner and ask them to provide the Board with written consent.
Registered victims can receive information about a prisoner via the Victims Register. As a registered victim, you can also make a submission and have your say about the crime’s impact on you and suggest parole conditions for the Board to consider. The Board is independent and does not manage the Victims Register. For information on how to apply for the Victims Register, visit victimsofcrime.vic.gov.au (link opens in a new window). For victims of crime who are not registered, see victims of crime – make a submission and have your say
The Adult Parole Board is prohibited from disclosing confidential or private information about prisoners under Part 9E of the Corrections Act 1986, other than in very limited circumstances.
