This bill establishes a confidentiality privilege for paid or
unpaid workers in a domestic violence shelter covering
information received while acting in their capacity as shelter
workers.  The person providing the information may waive the
privilege in writing.

Under current law, all persons arrested may not be detained in
custody for more than 20 hours without being charged with a
crime.  The bill establishes a separate detention period for
persons arrested for crimes involving domestic violence.  The
period is a minimum of 8 hours and a maximum of 36 hours.
