The act implements the recommendation of the department of regulatory agencies' sunset review and report concerning the domestic violence offender management board (board). The act extends the board until September 1, 2027. The act requires the board to conduct compliance reviews on at least 10% of the treatment providers who provide services to domestic violence offenders every 2 years beginning no later than July 1, 2023. The act conforms the fingerprint-based background check process for treatment providers to current law and practice.
The act requires the board to develop a data collection plan and requires providers to begin data collection pursuant to the plan by January 1, 2023. The act requires the board to produce an annual report that includes:
- The number of people who received domestic violence offender treatment in the preceding year, the number of those who successfully completed the treatment, the number of those who did not complete the treatment, and the number of those who reoffended and were removed from treatment;
- The number of treatment providers who provided domestic violence offender treatment in the preceding year;
- The number of treatment providers who applied to be placed on the list of approved treatment providers and the number of treatment providers placed on the list;
- The best practices for the treatment and management of domestic violence; and
- Any other relevant information, including any board recommendations for legislation to carry out the purpose and duties of the board to protect the community.
The act appropriates $70,232 from the general fund to the department of public safety for use by the division of criminal justice to implement the act.
