Section 2210.25  Charges for Expenses for Costs of Incarceration

 

a)         The time period for determining the costs of incarcerating an offender shall be calculated from the date the offender was confined within the Department or from July 1, 1982, whichever date is later, until the date the offender is released.

 

b)         The maximum rate at which sums shall be charged for the expenses incurred by an offender for his or her incarceration shall be computed as the average per capita cost for all offenders of the particular youth center in which the offender is incarcerated for the fiscal year during which the offender was incarcerated or the average per capita cost for the most recent fiscal year in which a final average per capita cost is known.

 

c)         The average per capita cost of incarceration for a given Department youth center shall be computed by determining the total amount of operational expenditures for a given fiscal year for the particular youth center and dividing the expenditures by the average daily offender population for that particular youth center during that fiscal year.

 

d)         The average per capita cost for each Department youth center shall be recalculated annually by the Department as soon as the figures of the preceding fiscal year are available.

 

e)         The offender shall be charged for the time housed at each youth center.

 

f)         Payments received on behalf of a particular offender, regardless of source, shall be accepted and credited against the expenses charged to the particular offender.
