Q What prison unit do offenders get released from for parole in Texas?
In Texas if the Board of Pardons and Paroles votes to release an inmate from TDCJ on parole or mandatory supervision they will be released from one of six regional release units. Prior to these facilities opening all men were released from Huntsville no matter where their current unit was located nor where they had been approved to live upon their release. This led to costly transportation costs for both the state and the families picking up loved ones. As a result they opened four additional release facilities across the state. Female offenders still pass through the Crain Unit in Gatesville. Male offenders may be released from the Huntsville Unit, the Clements Unit in Amarillo, the Robertson Unit in Abilene, Hutchins State Jail near Dallas, or the McConnel Unit in Beeville. Higher risk offenders will still be released from the Huntsville Unit. Prior to the inmates release you will be able to obtain all the specifics for when and where you should be.
