The court may place such person for the duration of the presumptive sentence. The court may only place a person in a local detention facility pursuant to this section if there is a contractual agreement between the chief correctional officer of that county and the Department of Corrections. The contract may include all operational functions, or only housing wherein the department would provide staffing and medical costs. The agreement must provide for a per diem or partial per diem reimbursement for each person placed under this section, which is payable by the Department of Corrections for the duration of the offender’s placement in the facility. The full per diem reimbursement may not exceed the per diem published in the Department of Corrections’ most recent annual report for total department facilities. This section does not limit the court’s ability to place a person in a local detention facility for less than 1 year.
