Upon evidence shown that a parolee has violated a condition of release or shown behavior that would indicate he or she is a danger to society, the parole board may issue a "blue warrant" ordering that the parolee be arrested and confined in a Texas jail. The parolee then has the right to a hearing before the board or one of its designated agents to determine if there is sufficient evidence that a parole violation has occurred.

Upon being granted parole, a parolee must sign a contract accepting the parole terms the Board of Pardons and Paroles has chosen to impose. While terms can differ from case to case, several conditions are present for most parolees:
In addition to these general conditions, the Texas Parole Board is empowered to impose a whole host of individualized requirements on a parolee, and any refusal to comply with such requirements may result in parole being rescinded. The Board may order psychological counseling, substance abuse treatment, mandatory education, electronic monitoring, community service, and/or the payment of restitution. Additional conditions, including the prohibitions against Internet access, required registration, and the establishment of a child safety zone may apply to certain sex offenders.
