  • The board fix the manner and time of payment of restitution as a condition of every parole;
  • Every parolee obtain the knowledge and consent of his or her community parole officer before changing residence, instead requiring a parolee to notify his or her parole officer before any change of residence;
  • Every parolee submit to urinalysis or other drug tests;
  • Every parolee not associate with any other person on parole, on probation, or with a criminal record or with any inmate of a correctional facility without the permission of his or her community parole officer; and
  • The board require every parolee at the parolee's own expense to submit to random chemical testing of a biological substance sample from the parolee to determine the presence of drugs or alcohol.
