The Indeterminate Sentence Review Board (ISRB or Board) was created in 1986. Before that, the Board had been the Board of Prison Terms and Paroles. The Board is a quasi-judicial board located in the Department of Corrections (DOC). The Board retains independent decision making, and has jurisdiction over the following three types of cases:

  1. Persons who committed crimes prior to July 1, 1984 and were sentenced to prison.
  2. Persons who committed certain sex offenses on or after September 1, 2001.
  3. Persons who committed crimes prior to their 18th birthday and were sentenced as adults.
