Annotation: THE PRE-HEARING INTENSIVE SUPERVISION (PHIS) A PROGRAM DESIGNED TO SUPERVISE CERTAIN TYPES OF JUVENILE OFFENDERS DURING THE PERIOD PRIOR TO THEIR FORMAL ADJUDICATORY HEARING.
Abstract: THE MAJOR AIM OF PHIS IS TO ENABLE THE BOY TO MAINTAIN A REASONABLY NORMAL LIFE (RESIDING AT HOME, ATTENDING SCHOOL, ETC.) WHILE AWAITING AN ADJUDICATORY HEARING, AND TO MINIMIZE THE RISK TO THE COMMUNITY. PHIS PROBATION OFFICERS PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING SERVICES: TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM COURT HEARINGS, NEURO-PSYCHIATRIC EXAMINATIONS, AND SCHOOL: TUTORING; REFERRALS TO OTHER SOCIAL AGENCIES; CURFEW CHECKS; ASSISTING CLIENT'S FAMILIES WHO ARE RELOCATING; AND APPEARING IN COURT ON ALL CASES. THERE WAS A MAXIMUM CASELOAD OF SEVEN FOR THE SEVEN PROBATION OFFICERS. THIS EVALUATION ADDRESSES DEMOGRAPHIC CHARACTERISTICS, PAST COURT RECORD, AND THE NATURE OF THE CHARGE AGAINST PHIS CLIENTS; THE LIKELIHOOD OF ARREST DURING THE PRE-TRIAL HEARING PERIOD FOR PHIS BOYS COMPARED TO A CONTROL OF UNSUPERVISED BOYS; AND THE OUTCOME OF PHIS BOYS' FINAL ADJUDICATORY HEARINGS.
