My response is based on him being paroled in July and not furloughed due to medical conditions. IDOC is currently screening and releasing inmates to Electronic Home Detention which is different for parole. In these cases movement is restricted heavily and a landline will be required.
If he is ordered by the PRB for electronic monitoring, he will be on lockdown at the host site until seen by an agent and a tech completes the equipment installation. After that he will be granted 12 hours a day / 7 days a week for movement. Something like 7am-7pm 7 days a week is common. If he locates employment and needs to adjust the hours the agent will assist him. On parole if you live in area with good cellular reception then a cellular electronic monitoring unit can be installed negating the landline. However the parolee will need access to a personal cellular phone. Take Care Chris
