Authority: Title 37.1, Chapter 2, Article 1.1, and 37.1-70.1 through 37.1-70.l9. Code of Virginia.

A.1. The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) shall implement a plan to accommodate additional sexually violent predators committed to the Virginia Center for Behavioral Rehabilitation (VCBR). Such plan may include double-bunking dormitory-style, repurposing existing space, or the addition of new housing units at the current VCBR site. The department shall not reopen a temporary facility for the housing, confinement and treatment of civilly committed sexually violent predators at the Southside Virginia Training Center in Dinwiddie County. Further, the department shall not undertake a capital project to expand or construct additional units or facilities at a new site for the housing, confinement and treatment of these individuals until a comprehensive review of the current program for the civil commitment of sexually violent predators is completed. The Department of Corrections shall assist DBHDS in developing the plan to accommodate additional capacity and shall provide risk assessment data of the affected population. The department may make necessary capital renovations to the facility in Nottoway County to accommodate the increased capacity in order to ensure resident safety.

2. In the event that services are not available in Virginia to address the specific needs of an individual committed for treatment at the VCBR or conditionally released, or additional capacity cannot be met at the VCBR, the Commissioner is authorized to seek such services from another state.

3. Beginning on July 1, 2011, the department shall provide quarterly reports to the Governor and the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees on the plan for the housing of additional individuals committed for treatment.
