Require Arrests Of Intensive Supervision Program Escapees From Department Of Corrections

Concerning requiring an officer to arrest an offender who escapes from an intensive supervision program in the department of corrections.
Session:
2017 Regular Session
Subject:
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement

The bill states that when a peace officer or community parole officer has probable cause to believe that an offender in an intensive supervision program has committed an escape by knowingly removing or tampering with an electronic monitoring device that he or she is required to wear as a condition of parole, the officer shall immediately seek a warrant for the offender's arrest or arrest the offender without undue delay if the offender is in the presence of the officer. However, before an officer arrests an offender, the officer, if practicable, shall determine that the notification of removal or tampering was not merely the result of an equipment malfunction.
