  Annotation: This brief presents the Transition from Jail to Community (TJC) initiative’s approach to case planning and community handoff.
  Abstract: This brief discusses the role of case planning in the TJC model, case plan content and structure, the referral process, the importance of continuity of care between the jail and community, interagency information-sharing, and the role community supervision agencies can play in case management and handoff. Topics covered include: the TJC initiative and model, a triage approach to interventions; the TJC case management approach; TJC case management principles; development of the case plan; referral process, inventorying available programs and services, and creating a seamless referral process; establishing continuity of care, jail “in-reach,” and consistency of programming and services; information sharing; and role of probation/community corrections. Analysis draws upon the implementation experiences of six TJC learning sites, all of which implemented elements of the TJC case management process to varying degrees and were continuing to work toward a more seamless and integrated process at the close of the TJC technical assistance period. Provided are concrete examples and strategies from the TJC sites for other jurisdictions, recognizing, however, that each jurisdiction is unique and will be confronted with different challenges and opportunities, depending partly on the availability of local resources.
