In 1988, State lawmakers enacted Public Act 511 (PA511) which is also referred to as the Michigan
Community Corrections Act. As a result, PA511 established statewide policy and a funding process for
locally designed and administered corrections programs that increase the range of sanctions and
services for nonviolent offenders.

The act requires the development of alternatives to incarceration that:
         protect the public,
         punish the offender,
         hold the offender accountable,
         increase restitution to victims of crime,
         provide needed rehabilitative services (e.g. substance abuse, mental health counseling, job
          training and placement, and continuing educational opportunities, and
         utilize valuable jail space for more serious, violent criminals.

The Oakland County Community Corrections Advisory Board (OCCCAB) was successful at securing
funding from the State in 1994, for it’s Comprehensive Plan. Since then, the OCCCAB has developed a
strong collaboration and cooperation from all components of the criminal justice system in Oakland
County. The plan is updated each year in order to review the effectiveness of existing programs, as well
as to create new programs as needed. The Oakland County Community Corrections Division provides a
wide array of sentencing alternatives for all types of non-violent offenders.
The following program descriptions are intended to be informational. If you have any questions about
the programs in this brochure, or you have any questions regarding Community Corrections in general,
please contact Barb Hankey, Manager, at 248.451.2310.

Misdemeanor Offense: A Pre-Sentence Investigation is not required for a defendant charged with a
misdemeanor offense, but may be ordered at the discretion of the court. MCLA 771.14(1). The period
of probation shall not exceed 2 years for a misdemeanor offense. MCLA 771.2(1).

Felony Offense: A Pre-Sentence Investigation is required for a defendant charged with a felony offense.
The period of probation shall not exceed 5 years.

There are three standard conditions of probation which should appear on every probationary order:
MCLA 771.3

    1. The probationer shall not violate any state, federal or local laws during the probationary term.
    2. The probationer shall not leave the state without permission of the court.
    3. The probationer shall report to the probation office monthly, or as often as directed by the
       probation officer.

In addition, other conditions may be imposed including, but not limited to; jail, fines, costs, community
service, restitution, mental health or substance abuse treatment/counseling, or electronic monitoring.
However, “... there must be a rational relationship between the restriction and rehabilitation,” People v
Loretta Miller, 182 Mich App 711, 713 (1990).

People v Marks, 340 Mich 495 states that “probation is not a matter of right but a privilege and rests in
the sound discretion of the court.”

People v Smith, 195 Mich App 147 holds that time spent in an electronic tether program is not
equivalent to confinement in jail. Therefore, an individual is not entitled to receive jail credit for
participation in that program.

CENTRAL INTAKE AND ASSESSMENT
   SENTENCED          The goal of the Central Intake and Assessment Unit is to screen and assess all jail
     FELONY           detainees to determine their eligibility and suitability for Community Corrections
  MISDEMEANOR         programs, and other alternative programs. The Central Intake and Assessment
Unit was established as part of Oakland County’s Comprehensive Plan for the purpose of providing
assessments of the needs of incarcerated inmates. This intake utilizes COMPAS (Correctional Offender
Management Profiling for Alternative Sanctions), the most advanced risk and need assessment tool
available developed by Northpointe, Inc. This assessment tool allows for making defensible
decisions using four risk scales – Violence, Recidivism, Failure to Appear and Non-Compliance).
This assessment will encompass the following areas:
       background information
       mental health and substance abuse problems
       matching offenders needs with available treatment and/or rehabilitative programs
       public safety
       offender’s willingness to participate in prescribed programming

Once an inmate’s eligibility has been determined, Central Intake staff will contact the Court and/or
Probation Department in an effort to recommend the offender be sentenced to one of the alternative
programs rather than serve a straight jail term. The alternative programs include:
       Life Employment & Skills Program (LESP) for Felons

LIFE EMPLOYMENT AND SKILLS PROGRAM

     SENTENCED         This program is designed for in-custody felony offenders who have a history
       FELONY          of past criminal conduct and substance abusing behavior. A willingness to
    PA511 ELIGIBLE     examine these issues within themselves is an essential component of the
                       program. For inmates sentenced to the program their jail term will be
reduced by 25% upon completion.
The program is a closed-end group that meets daily over a six-week period, for a minimum of 30 90-
minute sessions. A cognitive-behavioral methodology is used to challenge offenders to examine how
their belief and value system shape their behavior. This structured program will focus on:
       teaching new ways of thinking to precipitate self-change
       achieving self-control and positive change
       understanding distortions in thinking, and identifying criminal thought patterns
       participating in a variety of exercises and completing homework assignments is required
The Central Intake and Assessment Unit will administer the COMPAS assessment on all potential
program participants, enrolls offenders, and schedules the classes.

Eligibility
o Felony offenders should meet the eligibility requirements of PA511
o Offenders should have a sentencing guideline score that falls in the straddle cell range with a PRV
     score greater than 35

Cost
o There is no cost incurred by the offender

program will focus on teaching new ways of thinking to precipitate self-change in the following four
areas:
      attitudes towards alcohol and substance abuse
      criminal thinking
      thoughts and consequential thinking
      overview of systems and services available in the community

Eligibility
o Misdemeanor offenders with at least a 60 day sentence, and no history of assaultive convictions

PRETRIAL SERVICES
                       Pretrial Services (PTS) is a unit of the Oakland County Community Corrections
    PRETRIAL           Division established in 1987 with the primary mission of screening the adult
     FELONY
  MISDEMEANOR          pretrial arrestee population for release suitability in accordance with MCR 6.106.
                       PTS provides the court with neutral, non-adversarial, and accurate information at
initial court appearance hearings, as well as any subsequent court appearance where bond and/or
conditions of release are being reviewed. It is the goal of the unit to maximize defendant release rates
at the earliest possible time after arrest, while minimizing failure to appear and re-arrest rates.
The goal is achieved through a comprehensive screening process. PTS investigators interview adult
felony and misdemeanor arrestees (at the Oakland County Jail, local police lockups, or holding areas) in
order to:
      gather and verify information pertinent to release eligibility including
           – employment history
           – educational background
           – length of residence
           – criminal history
           – substance abuse/mental health
      conduct a complete computerized record check including District and Circuit Court records,
          Probate records, Secretary of State, and LEIN
      review local law enforcement and court records, including probation and parole information,
          prior juvenile arrests, as well as any outstanding warrants

The information obtained during the interview is then verified for accuracy. Contact with references,
family members, schools, employers, probation and parole officers, treatment providers, and others are
pursued by the investigators. The verified information is then compiled into a written report which is
made available to the judge, defense attorney, prosecutor, and probation officer. This report also
contains a recommendation as to the release suitability of the defendant. If a defendant is at risk to fail
to appear, or to be involved in pretrial misconduct, conditions of release may be ordered. These
conditions may include:
       participation in substance abusing testing or counseling
       refrain from the use of alcohol and/or drugs
       surrendering of a driver’s license or passport
       maintain or seek employment
       do not enter specified premises, or have contact with a specified person
       participate in Electronic Monitoring
Conditions of pretrial release may require defendants to report to the Pretrial Services Supervision Unit
(see Pretrial Supervision) to ensure compliance with those conditions. Violations or non-compliance of
release conditions are reported to the court and prosecutor.
In addition to an initial interview, report, and recommendation, PTS also provides a preliminary
sentencing guideline score (SGL) to indicate probability of confinement for felony defendants at the time
of exam in District Court and/or arraignment at Circuit Court.

require closer supervision may be placed on electronic monitoring (See Electronic Monitoring Devices).
Progress and compliance with conditions of release are continually evaluated and reported to the court
by the PSU case managers.
If the defendant is required to submit to random drug and/or alcohol testing per their bond conditions,
the PSU case manager will set them up with a testing facility. The PSU case manager can also assist
offenders in obtaining residential treatment in lieu of pretrial incarceration for their substance abuse
needs.

        all charges are eligible
        who is arrested while on bond
        who has been arrested on a fail to appear warrant regardless of the underlying charge

ELECTRONIC MONITORING DEVICES
                           For more intensive monitoring, in conjunction with Pretrial Supervision, an
      PRETRIAL
       FELONY              offender may be court ordered to an electronic monitoring device. Electronic
    MISDEMEANORS           monitoring allows for close supervision of an offender while in the
                           community. Schedules are set for offenders who are allowed to work, attend
school, counseling and other appointments required by the court. Restricted areas can be established in
cases where victims are involved. Progress and compliance with conditions of release are continually
evaluated and reported to the court.
The following are types of electronic monitoring devices utilized by Oakland County Community
Corrections Division:

Global Positioning System (GPS)
   The offender’s movements are tracked via satellites and reported at regular intervals, in the event of
   a violation, the offender’s movement is reported in as close to real time as possible. Exclusion zones
   for areas such as a victim’s home, work, school or church, are programmed into a map with a
   predetermined radius. If the offender enters one of these exclusion zones, the victim and GPS Staff
   are notified via pager, allowing the victim to enact a safety plan. Appropriate candidates for GPS
   include offenders charged with Domestic Violence, Criminal Sexual Conduct, or any crime with a
   victim.
   Requirements include:
    defendant must have a stable address
    defendant must have a standard power source
    defendant will be given a curfew to assure GPS device is fully charged
    for offenses with a victim, the defendant should be held in custody until installed on GPS tether
      to insure the victim has been contacted, and hot zones established
    defendant must follow all rules and regulations of the Pretrial Supervision Tether Unit

Transdermal Alcohol Tether
   These devices use transdermal (through the skin) analysis to determine the offender’s Blood Alcohol
   Content (BAC) every hour at least 24 times per day. It also monitors body temperature and distance
   between the leg and bracelet to detect attempts to tamper with or obstruct the unit. If the unit
   detects alcohol it will test every 30 minutes until alcohol is no longer present.
   Requirements include:
    defendant must follow all rules and regulations of the Pretrial Supervision Tether Unit

Breathalyzer Monitor
   This system does not require the offender to wear any type of ankle bracelet. Rather it randomly
   monitors and screens the defendant for alcohol while he/she is at home. The offender must submit
   to a Preliminary Breath Test (PBT) when the unit “calls” their home. The unit is also equipped with a
   camera and may ask the offender questions in order to verify identity. Result of the PBT are
   reported to the monitoring center and forwarded to the appropriate authorities for follow-up.
   Requirements include:
    defendant must have a stable address and a landline phone
    defendant must follow all rules and regulations of the Pretrial Supervision Tether Unit

                                                                                               Continued

Ignition Interlock
    An Ignition Interlock device is a breath analyzer installed into a vehicle to prevent a person from
    starting the engine if alcohol is detected in their system. The driver must blow in the device and
    pass a breath alcohol test before the vehicle will start.

SHERIFF’S OFFICE
RESULTS DRUG & ALCOHOL TESTING
                           Using a random color/letter testing system this program administers urine and
                          alcohol screens for the detection of illegal use of substances as ordered by the
                          court. Clients are assigned a color for drug testing and/or a letter for alcohol
                          testing pursuant to the frequency ordered by the court or referring agent.
                          Clients are required to call-in daily to a drug testing hotline that will indicate
the colors/letters for that day.
Drug test screens are directly witnessed, gender specific and are conducted by collecting urine samples
and analyzing the sample using an immunoassay testing technique (EMIT). All urine samples are initially
screened for dilution and/or adulterants. RESULTS follows drug cut-off levels in compliance with
Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services
Administration (SAMHSA). Positive drug test results are automatically confirmed by performing a second
immunoassay screen on the urine sample.
PBTs are conducted on-site for alcohol testing.
Courts and probation staff receive weekly compliance reports as well as notification of any positive test
results the day following testing except for week-ends.
The RESULTS program is located at the two Oakland County Community Corrections sites. All drug tests
and PBTs must be administered at one of the RESULTS sites. Make-up tests are not permitted.
