7-18-109. Transfer of inmate to facility by department.
(a) Subject to subsection (b) of this section, and upon recommendation of the warden or superintendent of the institution, the department may transfer an adult inmate to a residential adult community correctional facility.
(b) A transfer of an inmate to a residential adult community correctional facility under this section may be made only if:
(i) The department determines the inmate poses a low risk of escape or violence;
(ii) The inmate is eligible under W.S. 7-18-102(a)(iii);
(iii) The inmate is within at least twenty-four (24) months of his parole eligibility date and his conduct during his confinement has been such that he is appropriate for placement;
(iv) The residential adult community correctional facility is operated under a contract with a corrections board and the corrections board has contracted with the department to provide services which include placement of pre-parole inmates;
(v) The inmate has been accepted by the corrections board;
(vi) Funding for the placement is available; and
(vii) The department determines the correctional needs of the inmate will be better served by the transfer.
(c) Prior to the placement of an inmate in any nongovernmental adult community correctional facility, the department shall notify or cause to be notified the law enforcement agencies of affected units of local government concerning the identity of the inmate to be placed.
(d) No inmate shall be transferred to a residential adult community corrections facility under this section unless he agrees in writing to abide by the regulations of the program provider and any additional conditions imposed by the department. Approval of a transfer under this section is not a discharge of the inmate but shall be construed as an extension of the limits of confinement of the institution to which the inmate was committed. The department may revoke the approval of the transfer of an inmate under this section at any time for violation by the inmate of any conditions of the placement. Upon revocation the inmate shall be returned to the physical custody of the department.
(e) The probation and parole officers for the judicial district shall have general supervisory authority over all inmates in adult community correctional facilities or programs under this section.
