HB15-1269 - Transfer Persons To And From Correctional Facility

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning The Transfer Of Persons Who Cannot Be Safely Confined In Their Current Facility Between A Department Of Corrections Facility And A Facility Operated By The Department Of Human Services.

The bill amends the language in current law relating to the transfer of persons with a mental illness or developmental disability either to or from a facility operated by the department of corrections (DOC facility) and a facility operated by the department of human services for treatment of mental illnesses (DHS facility). The department of corrections is required to develop, maintain, and adhere to a policy concerning the provision of due process guarantees for situations where the executive director of the department of corrections believes that a transfer of an inmate from a DOC facility to a DHS facility is necessary because the person cannot be safely confined in the DOC facility.

The bill clarifies that a transfer to a DOC facility from a DHS facility can only occur when the person is serving a sentence to the department of corrections concurrently with a commitment to the department of human services. The bill also clarifies that the department of human services may transfer an inmate back to a DOC facility if the inmate cannot be safely confined in the DHS facility.
