Locating Parolees on the Lookup

Finding Someone on this Lookup

The most direct way to find a parolee is by knowing the parolee's name, NYSID number or DIN number. To assist in this process, you may also want to access the "Inmate Lookup," which provides parole eligibility dates of indeterminately sentenced individuals. Incarcerated individuals are routinely scheduled to appear before the Board within two to four months in advance of their parole eligibility date. 

Click on the month and year of the incarcerated individual's appearance before the Board. An alphabetical listing of individuals scheduled to be seen, or who have been seen, that month by the Board. Then click on the name or NYSID of the individual, (a unique identifier assigned to individuals by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services) to obtain specific information about that individual.

To search for a named individual, use your browser's "Find on Current Page"* feature.

NOTE: All browsers work differently; not all use IE's. Ctrl+F (IE) launch the "Find" box.

Parolees Listed Here

Parolees under DOCCS' jurisdiction, except those subject to youthful offender adjudications, are identified through this service.

Individuals under DOCCS' jurisdiction as a result of a court order placing them on Strict and Intensive Supervision and Treatment pursuant to Article 10 of the New York Mental Hygiene Law are not identified through this service. Such an order is the result of a civil proceeding commenced in the New York State Supreme Court under Article 10 of the New York Mental Hygiene Law and any information related to that proceeding is confidential pursuant to section 33.13 of the New York Mental Hygiene Law.

Youthful Offenders

The names and records of youthful offenders committed to DOCCS who are interviewed by the Board for possible release to community supervision are not maintained on this webpage.

While Criminal Procedure Law §720.35 provides for certain youthful offenders to be punished as a result their misbehavior, it also protects them from the long-term effects associated with a criminal record by making their records confidential.

A youthful offender can be between the ages of 16 and 18 at the time the offense was committed. The longest prison sentence a youthful offender can receive is 1⅓ to 4 years. The law further provides that the youthful offender adjudication is not a judgment of conviction for a crime or any other offense.

Finally, the law requires that all official youthful offender records, as well as documents associated with the youthful offender adjudication, remain confidential and not be disclosed to any person or public or private agency other than the institution to which a youthful offender has been committed and DOCCS.

Crime Victims

If you are a victim of a crime as defined by section 440.50 of the Criminal Procedure Law, you may have a right to be heard by the Board in connection with an incarcerated individual's possible release to community supervision.

If you wish to submit a Victim Impact Statement to the Board, visit the Victims webpage, which will provide you with the information you need to register with the Office of Victim Assistance and exercise your rights under Criminal Procedure Law §440.05.
