- (a) The commissioner shall determine the availability of state correctional facilities suitable for the detention and
confinement of persons held under authority of state law or under agreement entered into under (e) of this section. If
the commissioner determines that suitable state correctional facilities are not available, the commissioner may enter
into an agreement with a public or private agency to provide necessary facilities. Correctional facilities provided
through agreement with a public agency for the detention and confinement of persons held under authority of state law
may be in this state or in another state. Correctional facilities provided through agreement with a private agency must
be located in this state unless the commissioner finds in writing that (1) there is no other reasonable alternative for
detention in the state; and (2) the agreement is necessary because of health or security considerations involving a
particular prisoner or class of prisoners, or because an emergency of prisoner overcrowding is imminent. The
commissioner may not enter into an agreement with an agency unable to provide a degree of custody, care, and discipline
similar to that required by the laws of this state.
- (b) [Repealed, Sec. 37 ch 2 FSSLA 1992].

- (e) The commissioner may enter into an agreement with the United States, another state, a municipality of this state, or
another state agency, to provide a correctional facility for the custody, care, and discipline of a person held under
authority of the law of that jurisdiction.
