Inmate Releases and Time Served

Temporary vs. Permanent Prison Releases

Releases are grouped into two broad categories: permanent releases and temporary releases.

  • Permanent releases are those inmates who have reached the end point of a state prison sentence and whose state prison record has been officially closed out.

  • Temporary releases are those inmates currently in the service of a state prison sentence who are not in the physical custody of the department but whose prison records are still currently active.
