The Department of Corrections is preparing to enact regulations for the pretrial risk assessment tool it uses when deciding whether to recommend release of arrested persons before their trials.
The regulations update provisions regarding pretrial furlough of prisoners so that, under certain circumstances, the commissioner may find a past or pending disciplinary action does not affect the prisoner’s suitability for community placement. Other changes are included in the regulations as well.
The public comment period on 22 AAC 07.020 closes at 5 pm, June 4, 2018. Earlier versions of the regulations attracted no public comments.
Written comments may be submitted to the Department of Corrections Regulations Writer, PO Box 112000, Juneau AK 99811-2000, by fax at (907) 465-3315, or via e-mail at [email protected].
Comments may also be submitted through the Alaska Online Public Notice System.
