A. Included within this appropriation is $20,000 the first year and $20,000 the second year from the general fund to contract with Offender Aid and Restoration of Fairfax for social services, vocational and employment counseling, and client emergency assistance for probation and parole technical violators in the Fairfax County Day Reporting Center Program.

The Department of Corrections shall provide a report by December 1 each year to the Secretary of Public Safety on the progress of this program.

C. The Department of Corrections, in cooperation with the Virginia Criminal Sentencing Commission and the Office of the Executive Secretary of the Supreme Court, shall initiate a pilot project directed at achieving effective punishment, control and rehabilitation of felony offenders who are under probation or post-release supervision and could be found to be in technical violation of their supervisory conditions. Notwithstanding the provisions of §§ 19.2-316.2 and 19.2-316.3, Code of Virginia, the pilot project shall allow the Division of Community Corrections to directly refer appropriate offenders to the state detention center incarceration program and diversion center incarceration program without initiating a judicial hearing. The Department of Corrections shall incorporate appropriate procedures to ensure that the referred offenders are those who (i) are most appropriate for such referrals and (ii) pose no significant risk to public safety. The pilot project shall be implemented in selected jurisdictions in a timely manner, as the Department of Corrections deems appropriate. The Department of Corrections shall provide the 2004 Session of the General Assembly with a preliminary report on the implementation and effectiveness of this initiative.
