Explanation

BACKGROUND:
This ordinance authorizes the Administrative and Presiding Judge of the Franklin County Municipal Court to enter into contract with The Carey Group for training on evidence based practices. The Court was awarded two grants from the State of Ohio and one from the State Justice Institute (SJI). All three in part or completely were awarded for training. We were awarded $50,000 from the SJI and $21,500 and $10,150 from JRIG and JCORE grants, respectively. The probation user fee fund will be funding $8,250. This is a grand total of $89,900

In 2015, the Department of Probation Services (DOPS) committed to becoming an evidence-based organization, and to employing the Risk, Needs, Responsivity (RNR) Principle through a differential, risk-based supervision structure. Two major hurdles were identified in the planning phase: how to manage the high volume of new cases that the DOPS receives (approx. 500/month) while keeping caseloads manageable; and how to allow placement, duration and programming decisions to be guided by the assessment without access to the information prior to sentencing. In a significant demonstration of commitment to this project, the judges agreed that they would allow these decisions to be made post-sentence, by the DOPS.


EMERGENCY ACTION is requested in order to start training as soon as possible.

FISCAL IMPACT: The funds are available in the Grant Fund and the Probation User Fee Fund. Pending passage of legislation 1049-2019 for grant G251906 (SJI).
