Corrections
On May 28, 2009, the Department of Corrections submitted a proposed rule-making order to the Wisconsin Legislative Council Rules Clearinghouse.
Analysis
The proposed order repeals and recreates Chapter DOC 346, relating to secure detention facilities and juvenile portions of a county jail.
The Department of Corrections is authorized under s. 301.37, Stats., to develop “reasonable standards and regulations" for facilities, including secure detention facilities. The last revision of the current rule was in 1994. Subsequent changes in the law and accepted correctional practices necessitate revisions to DOC 346, including new standards.
The rule addresses three primary needs:
1. Repeal and recreate ch. DOC 346 to update, renumber and reorder for clarity. The Department is seeking revision of DOC 346, which not only reflects changes in law and correctional practice, but also clarifies existing standards. Since the last revision, it became apparent that clarification of many sections was necessary.
2. Bring the rule into conformity with ch. 938, Juvenile Justice Code, Wis. Stats. In 1996 the WI legislature created the Juvenile Justice Code (Chapter 938), which provided new direction in the ways juveniles would be managed in the juvenile justice system. Ch. DOC 346 was not changed at the time. The Department seeks to change DOC 346 to better reflect the changes in the law.
3. Bring the rule into conformity with the federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act.
Agency Procedure for Promulgation
A public hearing is required and will be held on June 26, 2009. The Department's Office of Detention Facilities is primarily responsible for this rule.
