An exception to this paragraph shall have prior approval by the Director, Community Corrections Division and final approval by the Secretary or a designee.

   (3)  Community corrections furlough program. This is a program which complements community corrections center residency and is permitted with the approval of the community corrections center director or contract coordinator.
