(c)Conditions of parole are subject to modification by OYA at any time, including an increase or decrease in supervision level or other changes OYA deems necessary; and

(a)Abide by the conditions of the Juvenile Parole/Probation Agreement;
(b)Remain within the control and care of the person(s) who has custody of the youth offender;

(e)Abide by the direction of the JPPO and the provisions of any written agreements, including special conditions.
