Program A: Adult Community-Based Rehabilitation Program

Program Authorization: R.S. 15:1111-1112

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Adult Community-Based Rehabilitation Program is to provide housing, recreation, and other treatment activities aimed at resocialization rather than isolation of adult offenders who have been approved for participation in a work release program. The program provides a smooth transition of offenders from prison back into society by affording an opportunity for offenders to obtain employment prior to release from state custody; this assists both the offender and his family. These facilities are nonsecure, community-based residential facilities that have generally been utilized as a reintegration resource. The use of the facilities has expanded as an alternative to incarceration for parole technical violators. The Department of Public Safety and Corrections has developed standard operating procedures (SOPs) to be followed by community contractors who house adult inmates in community rehabilitation centers; these SOPs include provisions for American Correctional Association (ACA) accreditation. The responsibilities of the Division of Probation and Parole have been expanded to include monitoring of functions and services of community rehabilitation centers (halfway houses and work release programs). Of the seven work release facilities monitored by the Division of Probation and Parole, three are contracted to private providers and four are operated through cooperative endeavor agreement with the local sheriff's office.

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).
