This book provides an overview of the Parole Act 2002, discussion of the structure and functions of the Parole Board and a detailed commentary on the parole system in New Zealand. It covers all the major aspects of parole practice and procedure, with chapters on eligibility for parole, consideration for parole, criteria for release on parole, information for parole hearings, the parole hearing, assessing risk, progression from prison inmate to parolee and conditions of release.

It also goes on to cover the important topics of victims, the prison network, programmes in prisons, reviews and appeals, recall to prison, extended supervision orders, and parole and the media. There is a valuable chapter on the interface between mental health and intellectual disability, and the parole process. The book concludes with a chapter which provides the reader with general resource material on parole.

Parole in New Zealand: Law and Practice is designed to fill a large knowledge gap in the legal literature about parole law and practice. It provides a guide to the law of parole which will be an invaluable resource for criminal lawyers, law students and academics, the police, probation officers, prison officers, prison reform groups, prisoners, victims and victim advocates, government departments, parole board members and staff and the judiciary.
