BILL NUMBER:S7682

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the correction law, in relation to authorizing the sheriff of
Albany county to enter into agreements for custody of inmates from other
states

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To permit Albany County Correctional
Facility to house out-of-state offenders with sentences up to two
years.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 adds a new subdivision 4 to
section 500-o of the correction law to allow out-of-state inmates
serving a sentence of imprisonment to be held at Albany County jail
for up to two years, subject to approval by county legislature and
officials.

Section 2 provides an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Last year legislation was enacted to allow local
correctional facilities to enter into agreements to house
out-of-state inmates who are serving sentences of at least 90 days
and up to one year. The reason for the one-year limitation was that
local correctional facilities generally do not provide the necessary
services and programming associated with long term incarceration.
However, Albany County jail has demonstrated the capacity and ability
to provide the requisite services and programs for a person serving a
sentence of incarceration of up to two years. As such, and upon the
consent of the Albany County legislature and Albany County executive,
this bill would authorize the sheriff of Albany County to house
out-of-state inmates serving a sentence of at least 90 days and up to
two years in the Albany County Correctional Facility and to provide
the treatment, services and provisions afforded to local inmates.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
This bill creates a revenue opportunity for Albany County.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
