(d) Where the prisoner is supervised by the parole board pursuant to a grant of parole by a state or jurisdiction other than Rhode Island, the parole board shall issue a detention warrant and order the prisoner committed to the adult correctional institution or the women's division of the adult correctional institution until the authority from the state or other jurisdiction having granted the prisoner parole takes custody of the prisoner.
