New York Consolidated Laws, Correction Law - COR § 634. Conduct of inmates participating in furlough program

<[Eff. until Sept. 1, 2019, pursuant to L.1972, c. 886, § 3.]>

1. An inmate who is permitted to leave the premises of an institution to participate in a furlough program shall have on his person a copy of the memorandum of that program as signed by the warden of the institution and shall exhibit such copy to any peace officer or police officer upon request of such officer.

2. If the inmate violates any provision of the program, or any rule, or regulation promulgated by the commissioner for conduct of inmates participating in furlough programs, he shall be subject to disciplinary measures to the same extent as if he violated a rule or regulation of the commissioner for conduct of inmates within the premises of the institution.

3. The provisions of this section relating to good behavior of inmates while participating in furlough programs outside the premises of institutions, and such allowances may be granted, withheld, forfeited or cancelled in whole or part for behavior outside the premises of an institution to the same extent and in the same manner as is provided for behavior of inmates within the premises of the institutions.

4. An inmate who is in violation of the provisions of his furlough program may be taken into custody by any peace officer or police officer and, in such event the inmate shall be returned forthwith to the institution that released him.  In any case where the institution is in a county other than the one in which the inmate is apprehended, the officer may deliver the inmate to the nearest institution, jail or lockup and it shall be the duty of the person in charge of said facility to hold such inmate securely until such time as he is delivered into the custody of an officer of the institution from which he was released.  Upon delivering the inmate to an institution, jail or lockup, other than the one from which he was released, the officer who apprehended the inmate shall forthwith notify the warden of the institution from which the inmate was released and it shall be the duty of the warden to effect the expeditious return of the inmate to the institution.
