6. The Crisis Intervention Unit The CIU has proven to be an invaluable asset since its
inception. The members have been producing high quality reports on the status of various security
indicators. Their analyses have been of great use in facility management.
Using the CIU members who work in Classifications, we have initiated a new one page Summary
of Criminal History which will be of great help in decision making during emergency situations.
7. Inmate Transports:
During April, Corrections Officers have conducted fifty-six (56) scheduled Medical Transports and
forty-one (41) Emergency Medical Transports, for a total of ninety seven (97) in April. The
transports have become a major cause of overtime spending. We are working through CMS to try
to consolidate scheduled medical trips to outside specialists and to establish clinics in the facility,
where possible. If I see no immediate success through CMS, I will approach Crystal Run Medical
personally in the next week. This year to date we have spent $51,640.00 in overtime associated
with these transports.

Our goals for 2007 are as follows:
II. Establish and develop a Crisis Intervention Unit (CIU).
The Mission of the Unit is to collect and analyze facility data from various sources, to
identify potential problems and propose strategies for intervention. In the four (4) months
since its inception, the Unit has made remarkable progress in data collection and I am
extremely impressed by the analyses they have provided
I believe that the Unit is about 70% of the way to full effectiveness.
2. Establish and develop a Discharge Planning Unit.
During April the following steps were taken by Beverly Moskowitz, Offenders Services
Counselor, in developing the Discharge Planning Program:
o Mrs. Moskowitz had two meetings with Angie Kays-Burden in regards to a TANF
grant that looks like a good match to our needs.
o Mrs. Moskowitz met with the new Jr. Grant Writer to discuss what the jail is doing
now and where we would like to see it go, so she can get a better feel for what we
are looking for when she is searching grant opportunities. The goal being to
o Mrs. Moskowitz continued to conduct research on Dialectical Behavioral Therapy-
(reached out to the creator of it and those involved in training for DBT) to get a
better understanding of what it is and looking into grant possibilities of bringing
DBT here in the jail to help assist with the inmates that continue to act out.
o Mrs. Moskowitz continued to work with Jo Anne Gurda with the Parole Reentry to
network to figure out a plan for the parole violators that are housed in the jail.
Their status and program eligibility are currently unclear.

discharge during April.

Administration’s relationship with all unions has remained positive throughout this period. We have
continued to work closely with COBA on initiatives to more fairly assign overtime and on employee
hardship issues and contract talks have begun
We have started using email for all uniformed staff. This is proving to be of great value in
improving our communications through more effective dissemination of information.
On April 13th we attended our ACA Accreditation Panel in Covington, Kentucky. We had submitted
a request for Waiver on one of the two standards that were found to be non-compliant and a plan
of action on the other. Both were accepted. Our final score was 100% on all standards.
