When someone is released on parole, it does not mean they are completely free and can return to their old life. Parolees must comply with stringent rules and restrictions. For example, many parolees are prohibited from consuming alcohol, maintaining gainful employment, etc. If a Parolee violates these rules, they could be charged with violating parole. The specific penalties and ramifications associated with violating parole are codified in the Nevada Revised Statutes, specifically NRS 213.150 to 213.153.
According to NRS 213.1518, this is when a parolee violates a condition of his or her parole status. Disregarding any of your parole conditions exposes you to the risk of losing all the benefits granted by the parole division after release.
The first violation of the condition of parole revokes all the benefits of a Parolee. The Parolee can also be arrested unconditionally and taken to detention or residential confinement. A warrant of arrest is not required so long as there is cause to believe that the parolee dishonored a parole condition.
According to NRS 213.151, any parole and probation officer has the authority to arrest an alleged violator so long as they have a written order from the board, which is also ascertained by the Chief Parole and Probation Officer.
A peace officer with powers to arrest may do so, so long as there is probable cause to believe that the parolee dishonored a parole condition.
According to NRS 213.151, a probation or peace officer carrying out an order of arrest of Parolee must do so in a manner as an ordinary criminal process. Under NRS 213.15105 having arrested a paroled prisoner and after placing them in detention, the arresting officer must immediately notify the Board of the arrest and detention.

In addition to this, they must also show a written explanation of how the Parolee violated parole conditions. Subsection 4 of NRS 213.151 says:
(a)Present to the detaining authorities, if any, a statement of the charges against the parolee; and
(b)Notify the Board of the arrest and detention or residential confinement of the parolee and submit a written report showing in what manner the parolee violated a condition of his or her parole.
According to NRS 213.1511, the board must carry out an inquiry, which determines probable cause to believe a violation occurred. The inquiry must be conducted before an inquiring officer who does not have any direct involvement in the case.
Upon completion of the inquiry, the inquiring officer shall make a written summary of what occurred at the inquiry, noting the substance of the evidence given in support of parole revocation. It remains at the discretion of the board to decide whether there is probable cause to hold the parolee for a Board hearing on parole revocation.
