The Board of Executive Clemency's Victim Notification program provides registered victims, their supporters and advocates information on inmates and parolees throughout the hearing process. In Arizona, victims are entitled to be notified prior to release consideration hearings (parole, absolute discharge and commutation of sentence). If registered, the Board is mandated to provide at least 15 day notification prior to the scheduled hearing date. The Board welcomes victim input. Victims may participate telephonically or attend in person and/or provide a written statement expressing their opinion.
The Board understands that this may be a difficult time and if needed can provide referral to the Arizona Department of Corrections Victim Services ADC's Office of Victim Services. ADC's Victim Services can provide an advocate to assist you during the process.
If attending in person, we ask that you notifiy staff upon arrival and we will ensure the you are escorted to a designated waiting area. If you have further questions or if we may be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the Board's Victim Notification Coordinator, Sabrina Fischer at [email protected] or call 602-542-5666. If you would like to register or update your address, please complete the Post-Conviction Notification Request. Post-Conviction Notification Request Form
