Temporary detention; alternative custody. Provides that if the facility indicated on a temporary detention order is a state facility, no bed for the person detained or in custody pursuant to the temporary detention order is immediately available at such state facility, and an employee or designee of such state facility is available to take custody of such person, such employee or designee of the state facility may assume custody of such person wherever such person is located and maintain custody of such person and transport such person to such state facility or to an alternative facility of temporary detention. The bill also provides that a person who is an inmate who is subject to an order authorizing treatment shall remain in law-enforcement custody at all times prior to admission to the facility designated for treatment of the person pursuant to such order.
