An Act to Amend the California Penal Code, Relating to Corrections
AB 1744, as introduced, Levine. Probation and mandatory supervision: flash incarceration.
Existing law authorizes probation and mandatory supervision, which in each case is a period of time when a person is released from incarceration and is subject to specified conditions and supervision by county probation authorities. Existing law, until January 1, 2023, allows a court to authorize the use of flash incarceration, as defined, to detain a person in county jail for not more than 10 days for a violation of the conditions of that person’s probation or mandatory supervision, as specified.
This bill would extend the authorization to use flash incarceration indefinitely.
