Annotation: GOALS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE RAMSEY COUNTY (MINN.) COMPREHENSIVE COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS PLAN ARE PRESENTED.
Abstract: THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF THE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS IS TO PROVIDE A STRUCTURE WHICH OTHER COMMITTEES CAN USE FOR THEIR PLANNING AND ORGANIZATION SO THAT ALL PARTS OF THE CORRECTIONS SYSTEM WILL BE OPERATING IN A FRAMEWORK WITH COMMON GOALS AND ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT. THE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDS DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURE TO FACILITATE CONTINUITY OF CARE AMONG ALL CORRECTIONAL ASPECTS OF THE HUMAN SERVICES SYSTEM OF RAMSEY COUNTY. THIS GOAL INVOLVES COMBINING THE DEPARTMENT OF COURT SERVICES, DETENTION AND CORRECTIONS, AND THE STATE PAROLE SERVICE, AS WELL AS CONSOLIDATION OF ALL ADULT AND JUVENILE SERVICES. NONRESIDENTIAL SERVICE GOALS INCLUDE DIVERTING CLIENTS FROM THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM, REDUCING JUVENILE COMMITMENTS TO STATE INSTITUTIONS, EXPANDING HELP AVAILABLE TO YOUNGSTERS WITH FAMILY PROBLEMS AND REDUCING ADULT COMMITMENTS TO CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTIONS BY FACILITATING APPROPRIATE CLIENT ATTITUDES OR BEHAVIORAL CHANGES WITHIN THE COMMUNITY SETTING. JUVENILE DETENTION GOALS INCLUDE LIMITING DETENTION TO ONLY THOSE JUVENILES WHO MUST BE DETAINED AND PROVIDING ADEQUATE PROGRAMS FOR STAFF DEVELOPMENT AND COORDINATION. RESIDENTIAL SERVICE GOALS FOCUS ON DECREASING THE AMOUNT OF TIME THE CLIENT MUST SPEND WITHIN THE SYSTEM BY EFFECTIVE RESOLUTION OF PROBLEMS OCCURRING EARLIER IN THE INTERVENTION PROCESS. THE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDS DEVELOPMENT OF MORE HUMANE, SPACIOUS JAIL FACILITIES; INCREASED DIVERSION FROM JAIL; AND REDUCED LENGTHS OF STAY FOR ALL PRISONERS. PROVISION OF A GRADED SERIES OF RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT PROGRAMS TO WHICH ADJUDICATED FEMALE OFFENDERS COULD BE SENTENCED IS SUGGESTED. TABLES, AND CHARTS ARE INCLUDED.
