Washington State law and court decisions have set guidelines for the ISRB to follow to protect a victim's identity and still comply with the Public Records Act . If you request confidentiality the Board will not make your original statement available for inspection. However, in line with court rulings, the Board must provide the inmate with a summary of your statement without disclosing your identity.
You may request confidentiality for the statement(s) you provide to the Board by using the Confidentiality Request form. When the ISRB sends you a notice of an upcoming hearing, we will include a copy of the confidentiality request.
The Board ensures victims and survivors of crimes are aware of their legal rights and are treated with dignity and respect as stated in the Washington State Constitution and RCW 7.69.010 . Victims and survivors have the right to make a statement during release/parole proceedings for inmates under the Board's authority.
