Description

Facilities for civilly committed sexually violent predators; reports to the Commonwealth's designated protection and advocacy system. Adds persons who are civilly committed sexually violent predators to the categories of persons for whom the Commonwealth's designated advocacy and protection system provides oversight, provided that funding for such purpose is provided by the General Assembly. The bill also requires state facilities to which sexually violent predators are civilly committed to notify in writing the Director of the Commonwealth's designated protection and advocacy system within 48 hours of critical incidents or deaths of individuals receiving services in the state facility, and requires the Commissioner of the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services to provide to the Director a written report setting forth the known facts of critical incidents or deaths of individuals receiving services in facilities to which sexually violent predators are civilly committed within 15 working days of such critical incident or death.
