Texas state law allows the general public to track an inmate’s parole status, and as long as you have the inmate’s basic information, you can request a status by phone, through their database or by sending an email to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
- Collect needed information
Make sure you have the full name of the inmate, his Texas Department of Criminal Justice or state ID number and a date of birth.
- Make a telephone request
Requests for the parole status of an offender can be made over the phone by calling one of justice department's telephone numbers.
- Conduct an Internet search
Parole status can be verified online by entering the offender’s information. This index can only be used for current inmates.
