Abstract: This report documents the preliminary impact of the additional funding and process changes that occurred during fiscal year 2006 in the five selected Community Supervision and Corrections Departments (CSCDs). As a result of delays in the implementation of the community supervision diversion initiatives, qualitative data was collected for analysis. The Criminal Justice Data Analysis (CJDA) Team conducted 160 site visits to the previously selected CSCDs to review what occurred regarding the implementation of the new initiatives and the potential impact. The purpose of the qualitative review was to gauge the preliminary impact of the additional funding and process changes in the five selected CSCDs. The major review components consisted of reviews of CSCD statistics and records; site visits to diversion facilities and specialty courts; and interviews with criminal justice decision-makers, practitioners, and offenders. Prior to the site visit, each CSCD was asked to complete a questionnaire regarding budgets, organizational structures, staffing patterns, violation policies, and other operational issues present during fiscal year 2006. Site visits were tailored for each CSCD visited. All new diversion beds were visited, as well as other residential facilities that divert offenders. Additionally, various specialty/drug/diversion courts were attended where applicable. Details of the site visits are provided in the later sections of this report for each CSCD.
