Annotation: An audit of the Supervised Residential Center for pretrial detainees and sentenced offenders in Baltimore, operated by the Volunteers of America (VOA) Chesapeake, Inc. was conducted on August 9-10, 1993.
Abstract: The facility was found in compliance with almost all of the Minimum Standards for Adult Community Correctional Facilities. The few identified deficiencies involve a need to document and/or perform required functions and activities on a routine and consistent basis, train staff, and ensure that regulatory agencies perform inspections as required. Many previous audit suggestions have been adopted in whole or in part. Overall, the facility is well managed and operated by properly trained, professional personnel who provide for a safe and secure environment. The contractual relationship with the Baltimore City Detention Center seems to be a viable approach in population management. The corporate leadership, facility administration, and Division of Pretrial Detention and Services are encouraged to continue their proactive approach as well as provide the support and resources necessary to maintain a high level of achievement for this unique program.
