DIVERSION, ALTERNATIVES TO ARREST - SIM INTERCEPT POINT 1

Problem: Some clients are arrested and booked into jail for minor infractions, payable warrants, and incidents caused by mental health and/or AOD incidents.

Goal #1: Reduce by 30% the number of arrests for non-violent offenses by 2020.

2014

29,381

2016

24,814 (⇓ 16%)

2015 - 27,928 ( ⇓ 5%)

2020 Goal

20,567 (⇓ 30%)

   
Goal #2:  Reduce by 50% the number of persons with severe mental illness arrested by 2020.

 
DEFINITION: Severe Mental Illness: A mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder of an individual age 18 or older (excluding developmental, neurocognitive, and substance use disorders) that is currently diagnosable or has been diagnosed in the past year, of sufficient duration to meet diagnostic criteria specified within the most recent version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) and resulting in serious functional impairment which interferes with one or more major life activities. Such disorders would include but not be limited to: Schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorders; Bipolar disorders; Major depressive disorders of at least moderate severity or with psychotic features; Obsessive-compulsive disorders; Panic disorder; or Post-traumatic stress disorder. These conditions may exist with co-occurring developmental, neurocognitive and/or substance use disorders.

PRE-ARRAIGNMENT SCREENS & PRE-TRIAL ALTERNATIVES TO INCARCERATION - SIM INTERCEPT POINT 2

Problem: Some detainees spend disproportionate time in jail pre-trial lacking options such as treatment, bail, or electronic monitoring alternatives.     Detainees with mental health issues have average length of stay 60% higher than those without mental health issues (32d v 20d).

Goal #3: Implement 100% non-violent offenders pre-arraignment mental health screening and risk assessment by 2020.
 

ON TRACK
Q4 2016
MUNICIPAL PROBATION IS CURRENTLY SCREENING THOSE ARRESTED FOR CRIMINAL MISDEMEANORS (EXCLUDING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, OVI, AND ACCOMPANYING FELONIES) AND PROVIDING ORAS-PAT RESULTS TO ARRAIGNMENT JUDGES IN COURTROOM 4D.

FCSO, AT TIME OF INMATE INTAKE, USES THE BRIEF JAIL MENTAL HEALTH SCREEN, FLAGGING THOSE INMATES WHO NEED FURTHER MENTAL HEALTH EVALUATION.




   
Goal #4:
Reduce the number of incarcerated pre-trial non-violent offenders by 30% by 2020.

Goal #5: Reduce the number of incarcerated pre-trial offenders with identified mental illness by 50% by 2020.

Goal #6: Reduce disparity of average pre-trial lengths of stay for MH vs non-MH offenders by 50% by 2020.
 

UNABLE TO MEASURE
Q4 2016
UNTIL WE MORE FULLY IMPLEMENT BOTH A COMPREHENSIVE OBJECTIVE CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM AND JAIL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, AND UNTIL WE HAVE ON BOARD A NEW COMPREHENSIVE MEDICAL PROVIDER, THESE BASELINE AND PROGRESS DATA ARE NOT AVAILABLE. THE STATUS OF GOALS #4-6 IS THEREFORE UNABLE TO BE MEASURED.

REHABILITATION AND RESTORATION SERVICES WHILE INCARCERATED - SIM INTERCEPT POINT 3

Problem: Most (74%) Inmates are not connected to services while incarcerated, or are connected to services that terminate upon release. Inmates most often leave incarceration with no enhanced skills, resources, or community connections.

Goal #7: Implement pre-release skills and needs assessment for 100% of inmates by 2020.
 

IN PROGRESS
Q4 2016
FCSO REPORTS THAT 6,491 ATTENDEES ARE SERVED ANNUALLY IN 29 PROGRAMS AT THE FRANKLIN COUNTY JAILS. THESE PROGRAMS INCLUDE AA, NA, AND AOD MEETINGS, ANGER MANAGEMENT, PARENTING, CREATIVE WELLNESS, JOB READINESS, COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY, LIFE SKILLS, CHILD SUPPORT, AND EXPUNGEMENT, AMONG OTHERS. INMATES PARTICPATE IN THIS PROGRAMMING ON A VOLUNTARY, SELF-SELECTING BASIS AND ARE ELIGIBLE TO ATTEND MORE THAN ONE PROGRAM DURING THEIR STAY AT THE JAILS. FOR COMPARISON, 26,674 INDIVIDUALS WERE BOOKED INTO THE JAILS IN 2015. ASSUMING THAT WE TRACK ON THE NATIONAL AVERAGE OF 75% OF BOOKINGS BEING RELEASED WITHIN 3 DAYS, THAT WOULD IMPLY THAT 6,669 INDIVIDUALS STAY IN THE JAILS LONGER THAN 3 DAYS AND WOULD POTENTIALLY BE ELIGIBLE FOR PROGRAMMING.


   
Goal #8:
Reduce disparity between average length of sentence for MH vs non-MH arrestees by 50% by 2020
 

UNABLE TO MEASURE
Q4 2016
UNTIL WE MORE FULLY IMPLEMENT BOTH A COMPREHENSIVE OBJECTIVE CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM AND JAIL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, AND UNTIL WE HAVE ON BOARD A NEW COMPREHENSIVE MEDICAL PROVIDER, THESE BASELINE AND PROGRESS DATA ARE NOT AVAILABLE. THE STATUS OF GOAL #8 IS THEREFORE UNABLE TO BE MEASURED.

REENTRY AND COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS - SIM INTERCEPT POINTS 4 & 5

 Problem: Franklin County inmates are at risk of recidivating due to a lack of connection to critical resources needed to support successful reentry and community reintegration.

Goal #9: Implement social service linkage and reentry planning for 100% of inmates by 2020 [Inmates with stays >3 days]

JUST UNDERWAY
Q4 2016
AT PRESENT, ONLY THE PATHWAYS PROGRAM FOR FEMALE OFFENDERS OFFERS COMPREHENSIVE SERVICE LINKAGE AND REENTRY PLANNING TO PARTICIPATING INMATES. THIS PROGRAM SERVES 45 INMATES PER YEAR. FOR COMPARISON, 26,674 INDIVIDUALS WERE BOOKED INTO THE JAILS IN 2015. ASSUMING THAT WE TRACK ON THE NATIONAL AVERAGE OF 75% OF BOOKINGS BEING RELEASED WITHIN 3 DAYS, THAT WOULD IMPLY THAT 6,669 INDIVIDUALS STAY IN THE JAILS LONGER THAN 3 DAYS AND WOULD POTENTIALLY BE ELIGIBLE FOR PROGRAMMING.










 

Goal #10: Reduce return to jail rate in Franklin County jails by 50% by 2020. 
 

READY TO BEGIN
Q4 2016

DEFINITIONS (3 YR)

RECIDIVISM: Recidivism is any conviction for a jailable offense, when the offense occurs within three years of conviction, release from a prison or jail sentence imposed for a conviction, or release from community control or post-release control, whichever is the later date.
RETURN TO JAIL RATE: Return to jail is any return to incarceration, including re-arrest, violation of probation or parole, or order-in for failure to appear that occurs within three years of an original jailable offense.


BASELINE DATA WILL BE COMPILED FOR Q4 2016 AND INTO 2017. FROM A PROGRESS STANDPOINT, IT IS NOT UNREASONABLE TO ASSUME THAT FRANKLIN COUNTY "RETURN TO JAIL" 3-YEAR RATE TRACKS CLOSE TO THAT OF OTHER METROPOLITAN AREAS, AND CAN BE ESTIMATED TO BE IN THE RANGE OF 60-65%.‚Äč
