Defendants who are not residents of Kansas, who are the subject of specific detainer orders of other state or federal law enforcement agencies or who are in need of physical or mental care or treatment, including care or treatment for any chemical dependency or intoxication, shall not be eligible for a recommendation for supervised release or to participate in a supervised release program.

If the court orders the release of the defendant with the condition of specific participation in the supervised release program, the court services officer shall prepare and the defendant shall sign a written agreement containing (1) an acknowledgment of the relationship between the supervised release program and the defendant, (2) the details of the conditions of release and (3) a statement of the consequences of any breach of the agreement by the defendant.
(c) The supervised release program for each defendant shall be compatible with all required court appearances and shall include appropriate programs for diagnostic testing, education, skills training, employment and counseling. Each defendant under supervised release shall be closely supervised by a court services officer and may be terminated from the supervised release program by court order revoking the release order or by final disposition of the charges against the defendant.
