  APAI - Handbook for New Parole Board Members
Although the critics of parole sometimes portray these complementary functions as the parole board circumventing the will of the court and “letting the offender out early,” it is safe to say that judges are familiar with the law and that they certainly impose sentences in anticipation of the options open to the parole board.
Indeed, parole boards are often eager to understand the intent of the sentencing court in making its decisions and may seek input from the sentencing judge at the time that parole is considered.
Essentially, as a parole board is considering a case for possible release, its members are focusing in on how the offender has performed within the context of his or her period of incarceration.

They are also an excellent tool to orient new parole board members, especially in light of the inevitable turnover on boards deriving from the set terms of board members.
Parole boards have adopted two basic types of policy frameworks, also known as guideline models, to integrate the basic considerations that come into play when a parole decision is to be made.
