(This amendment modifies language authorizing the Department of Corrections to establish Detention Center Incarceration Programs in each of its four regions by directing the Department to also include the establishment of Diversion Center Incarceration Programs for male and female offenders who are placed on probation. The amendment further provides guidance on the continued use of correctional field unit #22. This directive is consistent with a master plan for community corrections facilities presented to the General Assembly by the Department of Corrections.)
