BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:

Section 1. Amend §6538, Title 11 of the Delaware Code, by redesignating subsection (d) thereof as subsection (e), and by inserting a new subsection to read:

"(d) The Department may permit inmates to participate in Community Service Projects by granting special furloughs for the period of such projects, not to exceed fourteen days. Such furloughs shall not be considered personal furloughs under the Department rules and regulations. The time spent participating in a Community Service Project may be counted towards a restitution or community service component of a sentence. During a Community Service Project, the inmate need not be under the continual escort and supervision of custodial officers. All associated transportation and custodial costs shall be the responsibility of the organization which sponsors the Community Service Project."
