Community corrections systems. Makes clarifying and technical corrections to that part of the parole abolition bill from the Second Special Session of 1994 in the area of community corrections. The bill (i) allows the Department of Corrections 60 days to evaluate the suitability of individuals for participation in the detention center incarceration programs and 45 days for the diversion center incarceration programs, (ii) increases the authority of the Director of the Department of Corrections to purchase community-based services from all vendors, not just nonprofit vendors, (iii) provides that judges can commit individuals to community-based corrections programs for facilities only within their localities, (iv) requires court clerks to notify local jails of the date a crime was committed, and (v) directs local community corrections boards to develop and amend community corrections plans. The bill also clarifies (i) the Department of Corrections' authority to determine appropriate facility placement of individuals recommitted for violating provisions of their post-release supervision, (ii) the membership and appointment process for community criminal justice boards, and (iii) that moneys associated with implementing community corrections plans must be used as such. Additionally, the bill (i) clarifies the definition of who will be eligible for the local program, (ii) outlines provisions for the removal of an offender from a program for “intractable behavior,” and (iii) requires that the offender pay a fee for supervision in the program.
