Detention of Parolee Arrested for Violent Crime

Concerning the detention of a person arrested for committing a criminal offense while the person is on parole.
2024 Regular Session
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Bill Summary

The bill requires a parolee who is arrested for allegedly committing a crime of violence while on parole to be detained at a state correctional facility while awaiting a parole revocation hearing. The bill requires the department of corrections to reimburse a county or city and county for one-half the cost of transporting the parolee from the county or city and county to a state correctional facility.

Under existing law, a community parole officer who is informed by a law enforcement agency that a parolee has been arrested for a criminal offense is required to request that a parole revocation proceeding be deferred pending a disposition of the criminal charge. The bill repeals this requirement and instead permits the community parole officer to request that the parole revocation proceeding be deferred.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
