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.
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
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.
