Program Authorization: R.S. 15:901-908

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Bridge City Correctional Center for Youth (BCCY) (formerly the Louisiana Training Institute - Bridge City) is a secure correctional facility for male juveniles adjudicated delinquent. The BCCY received American Correctional Association (ACA) accreditation in June 1994.

The mission of the Bridge City Correctional Center for Youth is to provide for the custody, care, and treatment of adjudicated offenders through enforcement of the laws and implementation of programs designed to ensure the safety of the public, staff, and inmates and reintegrate offenders into society.

  2. Provide for the safety of correctional staff and inmates by maintaining an organized and disciplined system of operations that promotes stability in institutional and other field operations.
  3. Ensure that basic services relating to adequate food, clothing, medical care, and shelter are provided to the inmate population.
  4. Provide an environment that enables behavior change by making rehabilitative opportunities available for inmates who demonstrate motivation for change and the desire to participate in rehabilitative programs.
  5. Maintain accreditation through the ACA while continuing to provide services in the most economical, efficient, and effective way possible.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indictors are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
