DIGEST OF HB 1284 (Updated February 5, 2002 9:50 PM - DI 84)


Violent offenders on home detention and community corrections. Creates a provision for constant supervision of violent offenders and flight risks on home detention: (1) as a condition of pre-trial release; and (2) as a condition of parole. Requires the department of correction, probation departments, and community corrections programs to develop written criteria and procedures to determine if an offender placed on home detention as a condition of pre-trial release or parole is a violent offender or flight risk. Requires that an entity monitoring a violent offender: (1) provide local law enforcement agencies with information indicating whether an offender on home detention is a violent offender; forward a photograph of the offender to local law enforcement; and (3) cause a law enforcement agency to be contacted first if a violent offender or flight risk violates a condition of home detention. Requires state and locally operated community corrections programs to report to the executive director of the legislative services agency the race, ethnicity, and communicable disease carrier status of offenders in the programs. Adds the reintegration of offenders into the community as a purpose for the establishment and operation of community corrections programs. Amends the definition of "community corrections program" to include programs that reintegrate offenders into the community.
