|Welcome to the Arizona Board of Executive Clemency
The Function of the Board
The mission of the Arizona Board of Executive Clemency is to ensure public safety by considering and granting parole to inmates certified as eligible by the Department of Corrections and who meet the legal criteria for a grant of parole and by recommending to the Governor appropriate clemency actions.
Each month the Board conducts parole hearings for inmates who have committed offenses prior to January 1994. Parole hearings may include consideration for home arrest, work furlough, rescission, modification, revocation and absolute discharge. The Board also conducts clemency hearings, which include commutation, pardon and reprieve.
