3056.  (a) Prisoners on parole shall remain under the supervision of
the department but shall not be returned to prison except as
provided in subdivision (b) or as provided by subdivision (c) of
Section 3000.09. A parolee awaiting a parole revocation hearing may
be housed in a county jail while awaiting revocation proceedings. If
a parolee is housed in a county jail, he or she shall be housed in
the county in which he or she was arrested or the county in which a
petition to revoke parole has been filed or, if there is no county
jail in that county, in the housing facility with which that county
has contracted to house jail inmates. Additionally, except as
provided by subdivision (c) of Section 3000.09, upon revocation of
parole, a parolee may be housed in a county jail for a maximum of 180
days per revocation. When housed in county facilities, parolees
shall be under the sole legal custody and jurisdiction of local
county facilities. A parolee shall remain under the sole legal
custody and jurisdiction of the local county or local correctional
administrator, even if placed in an alternative custody program in
lieu of incarceration, including, but not limited to, work furlough
and electronic home detention. When a parolee is under the legal
custody and jurisdiction of a county facility awaiting parole
revocation proceedings or upon revocation, he or she shall not be
under the parole supervision or jurisdiction of the department. When
released from the county facility or county alternative custody
program following a period of custody for revocation of parole or
because no violation of parole is found, the parolee shall be
returned to the parole supervision of the department for the duration
of parole.
   (b) Inmates paroled pursuant to Section 3000.1 may be returned to
prison following the revocation of parole by the Board of Parole
Hearings until July 1, 2013, and thereafter by a court pursuant to
Section 3000.08.
   (c) A parolee who is subject to subdivision (a) but who is under
18 years of age may be housed in a facility of the Division of
Juvenile Facilities.
