Unless the inmate is transferred to the correctional release center, or returns after working hours to the institution under jurisdiction of the department of corrections, the department of corrections shall contract with a judicial district department of correctional services for the quartering and supervision of the inmate in local housing facilities. The board of parole shall include as a specific term or condition in the work release plan of any inmate the place where the inmate is to be housed when not on the work assignment. The board of parole shall not place an inmate on work release for longer than six months in any twelve-month period unless approval is given by a majority of the full board of parole. Inmates may be temporarily released to the supervision of a responsible person to participate in family and selected community, religious, educational, social, civic, and recreational activities when it is determined that the participation will directly facilitate the release transition from institution to community. The department of corrections shall provide a copy of the work release plan and a copy of any restitution plan of payment to the judicial district department of correctional services quartering and supervising the inmate.
