SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)

State Board of Corrections; membership; powers and duties; review of death of inmates in local correctional facilities. Authorizes the State Board of Corrections (the Board) to conduct a review of the death of any inmate in a local or regional correctional facility in order to determine the circumstances surrounding the inmate's death and whether the facility was in compliance with the Board's regulations. The bill requires the Board to develop and implement policies and procedures for the review of the death of any inmate that occurs in any local or regional correctional facility. The bill provides that the Board (i) may request the Department of Corrections to conduct a death review if the Board determines that it cannot adequately conduct such review because the Board is already in the process of conducting another review and (ii) shall request the Office of the State Inspector General to review the operation of any entity other than a correctional facility if such review is necessary to complete the death review. Finally, the bill also specifies requisite qualifications for individuals appointed to the Board.
