The Pardon and Parole Board (PPB) utilizes the Victim Notification Program to notify registered victims and/or victim’s representatives of parole considerations, commutation requests, and medical parole requests that will be considered by the Board. The Pardon and Parole Board’s (PPB) Victim Notification Program notifies registered victims and victim representatives of any parole actions or hearings in which the offender will be considered by the Board and provides an opportunity for the victim or victim's representatives to provide input to the Board. The Department of Correction’s also has a Victim Notification Program; however, however, the one form will enroll the victim or the victim's representative for both the Pardon and Parole Board and the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
To register for the PPB’s Victim Notification Program, contact the Pardon and Parole Board at 405/521-6600 and request a form be mailed to you or the Victim Notification Form (notification request form) can be downloaded, completed and returned. The Victim Notification Form should be mailed to:
Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board
2501 N. Lincoln Blvd., Suite 201
Oklahoma City, OK 73105
Once the form is on file, a letter will be sent approximately twenty (20) days prior to the offender’s consideration date for regular parole hearing, a Stage II parole hearing, a Stage II Commutation hearing, or a medical parole request advising the victim of the time, date, and place of the parole hearing, as per Title 57 O.S. §332.2. If the victim or victim’s representative does not register, no notifications will be sent. The Board does not know who the victims or the victim’s representatives are in an offender's case.
In order to ensure continued notification throughout the parole, commutation, and/or the pardon process, address changes must be provided to the Pardon and Parole Board as soon as possible.
The PPB Victim Notification Program is separate from the VINE Notification Program through the Office of the Attorney General. For more information on VINE, click on this link https://www.vinelink.com/#/home/site/37000.
