Apparently so. I'm just thinking back to the last (only) time I accepted parole, all of us new releases had to show up at the P&P office for orientation on a Wednesday night. I remember it well. For me, it was literally the day after I had been released from prison.

Before the meeting even began, the agent doing the presentation said "I smell alcohol on someone's breath -- someone better fess up or you're ALL getting tested before you leave." Sure enough, no one fessed up, so he had one of his assistants fetch a breathalyzer kit, and one by one, we all had to line up on our way out, and give a quick blow into the device.

Two people blew positive. They had both just gotten out of prison less than a week before. They were both placed in cuffs and arrested back to jail that very night, I saw them show up on the local sheriff's department arrest register and everything.

I just assumed that was the norm everywhere, but maybe it's just an Idaho thing.
