Today’s Objectives
   Overview
   Using the Summary Report
       To identify criminogenic needs
       To prioritize
       To begin case planning
   Using the case plan to track
    interventions and strategies
   Group Exercise

     2010 and Beyond
     Where are WE going…

   Vision: Return to the Basics of Supervision
       It’s a Human Behavior and Relationship Business
       Culture of Respect in ALL of our Divisions
       Instill and Sustain a Customer Service Approach
       Intervene in the Cycle of Failure
       Empower the PPO and CPPO

   How do we do this?
       Implementing a common sense risk management
        approach to supervision…called EBP

Thoughts = Actions = Behavior & Habits = Character
    8 Principles of Evidence Based Practices

   Assess Actuarial Risk
   Enhance Intrinsic Motivation
   Target Interventions
   Skill Train with Directed Practice
   Increase Positive Reinforcement
   Engage ongoing Support in Natural
   Measure Relevant Processes/Practices
   Provide Measurement Feedback
Evidence-based Practices
Major Issues

   Risk Assessment
   Needs Assessment
   Supervision Levels Based on Risk
    and Needs
   Minimum Contact Standards
   Addressing Noncompliance
Verification of OTI Scores
An Overview

   Research/Best Practice suggest re-arrest
    is most appropriate risk measure

   Offender Traits Inventory – Subset of
    Wisconsin Risk Instrument; used since
    1974; widely validated

   Offenders were most likely to be
    rearrested in first 150 days of
Risk Scores
Recommended Supervision Levels

Level    Average Risk   OTI Range
Minimum       9%          00-15
Low          14%          16-25
Moderate     23%          26-35
High         31%           36+

        Mental Health Level 1 (potential suicide)
   Level 3: Moderate Need
       One of the Big Four criminogenic needs and both of the lesser
        criminogenic needs (substance abuse or low self-control) or
        Mental Health Level 2 (potential for serious mental health illness)
   Level 4: Low Need
       One of the non-criminogenic needs associated with criminal
        behavior (employment, school, financial) or either of the lesser
        criminogenic needs (substance abuse, low self-control) or only
        one Big Four need or Mental Health Level 3 (potential for mental
        health disorder)
   Level 5: Minimal Need
       No criminogenic needs identified

Contact Definitions
Purposes/Types of Contacts
   An offender management contact is conducted in
    order to address compliance with the conditions of
    supervision and any needs identified in the case
    plan, and engages the offender with effective and
    meaningful supervision practices.

   A curfew contact is used to monitor and control an
    offender’s activities and behavior by requiring the
    offender to remain in a specified place for a specified
    period each day.

   A home contact is conducted in order to assess the
    offender’s living conditions, to address compliance
    with the conditions of supervision and any needs
    identified in the case plan, and encourages
    household involvement and support during the
    period of supervision.
Tools of the Trade
 Supervision Plan
 Treatment Plan
 Behavioral Contract

      “The best way to monitor progress is to use the Case
      Plan as your guide. The Case Plan gives the Probation
      Officers a template to ensure that an emphasis is
      placed on reducing criminogenic targets and the
      probationers adhere to the court order”
