Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)


When will an individual's case be heard?

As a general rule of thumb, most cases are heard by the NC&PB approximately four to six weeks after the prisoner's Disposition Board,
which is a preliminary hearing at a military correctional facility. The case will be reviewed for clemency, parole and/or MSR depending on
the offender’s eligibility date once every year until the offender reaches his/her end of sentence. You must contact the NC&PB to obtain the
exact date of review.

The following link is where you'll find dates for the future Board hearing.

How do I find out the results from a hearing?

Board results are provided to the confining facility or parole office within 15 working days from the date the hearing was held hearing.
Victims and/or Witnesses (Vic/Wit) enrolled in the Vic/Wit program are notified by the confining facility’s Vic/Wit Coordinator.

Please note: Staff members at the NC&PB are not authorized to disclose any results directly to the offender, Victim/Witness, family
members, friends or power of attorney.

Does the NC&PB approve the release of Navy, Marine and Coast Guard prisoners held in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons(FBOP) to supervision?

No, the NC&PB only makes parole decisions on prisoners confined within Department of Defense (DoD) correctional facilities. The US Parole Commission (USPC) has the authority over supervised release decisions for military offender held in a FBOP facility.

What authority does NC&PB retain over Navy, Marine and Coast Guard prisoners held in the custody of the FBOP?

The NC&PB retains clemency control of naval members when they have been transferred to the FBOP except Coast Guard members.
