Historical Note

The 1903 Indeterminate Sentencing Law allowed each of the state prisions to authorize their own paroles. In 1957, a three member Board of Parole was created to replace the State Prison Board of Directors as the paroling authority. On July 1, 1968, the Department of Correction was established with an autonomous, single State Board of Parole, to replace the former three separate boards of parole. On July 1, 2001, the State Board of Parole was replaced by Connecticut Board of Pardons and Paroles.
