§28-3-11. Discharge or parole; arrest and return of paroled girls.
The state commissioner of public institutions shall have authority, under such rules and regulations as the commissioner may prescribe, to grant, on the recommendation of the superintendent, a discharge or parole to any inmate of the Industrial Home; but while any inmate is on such parole, and until she is finally discharged, she shall remain in the legal custody of the commissioner, and shall be subject to be returned to the home at any time when, in the judgment of the commissioner, the interests of such paroled inmate will best be served thereby. The written order of said commissioner, countersigned by the superintendent, shall be sufficient warrant for any officer or person named therein to arrest and return to the home any paroled inmate named in such order; and it shall be the duty of any such officer or person to arrest and return such girl to the home. Expenses incurred in returning paroled inmates to the home shall be paid out of the funds provided for the support of the home, when such inmates are returned upon order of said commissioner.
