PROBATION
The Monroe County Office of Probation - Community Corrections received $104,899.00 from STOP-DWI in 2008. These funds supported the services of the DWI Felony Unit. During 2008 this unit supervised 934 offenders. The DWI Felony Unit is comprised of six Probation Officers and one Senior Probation Officer. The unit supervises probationers identified as the most high-risk DWI-Felony offenders. Probation Officers assigned to this team maintain specialized caseloads in order to provide enhanced supervision. This includes surveillance; unscheduled field visits; close monitoring of treatment progress; more frequent contact with probationers and family members; and increased Alco-sensor testing and urine screening. Overall, the Office of Probation supervised a total of 2,298 DWI offenders during 2008 which includes 1,259 Misdemeanor DWI offenders. Violations of Probation were filed on 272 offenders who failed to comply with Probation. Sanctions included prison, jail, jail weekends, jail work weekends, electronic monitoring, community service and judgments ordered for unpaid fines and surcharges. Further, this Office supervised four Vehicular Assault 2nd offenders, three Vehicular Manslaughter 2nd offenders and over 200 Aggravated Unlicensed Operator offenders. In 2008 the Office of Probation collected a total of $387,665.97 in DWI fines. Surveillance Probation Officers frequently conduct surveillance on DWI offenders to ensure compliance with the conditions of probation. DWI Surveillance details are assembled to target offenders deemed at risk for repeated offenses. In 2008 eight DWI Surveillance Details comprised of 102 Probation Officers, conducted surveillance on 292 offenders. The details were conducted with the goal of enforcing conditions of probation prohibiting unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and the consumption of alcohol. During office visits, Probation Officers conduct “walking surveillances” of probationers, see if they have driven to the building. Probationers are monitored at their homes, jobs and other locations in the community during the day and night, weekdays and weekends. Random Alco-sensor tests are routinely conducted during office and home visits on all probationers but especially those deemed to be a risk for potential alcohol abuse. Alco-sensor tests enabled officers to confirm the absence or presence of alcohol; and if appropriate, to quickly intervene through either a Violation of Probation and/or suitable treatment alternatives. Urine-screen tests are also conducted in the office to detect the use of marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines and morphine based drugs. Early detection and expedient intervention further protects the community and enhances public safety. In 2008 Probation Officers conducted Alco-sensor testing for two STOP DWI Check Point Details resulting in several arrests for DWI. The Office of Probation - Community Corrections is committed to continuing surveillance of high-risk probationers convicted of DWI offenses. The Office remains highly motivated to pursue the mission of ensuring public safety through vigorous supervision of sentenced offenders, particularly those sentenced to probation for DWI offenses.

DWI VICTIM IMPACT PANEL
The Monroe County DWI Victim Impact Panel consists of three or four DWI victims who address an audience of DWI offenders about the drunk-driving crashes in which they experienced injury or a loved one was killed. A law enforcement officer may also serve as a panelist alongside the victims. The goal of the Panel is to change the behavior of the drinking driver and thus save lives. This does not replace conventional sentencing, but supplements it. The VIP is self-sufficient due to fees collected. In 2008, $38,387.00 was collected in fees to cover costs for DWI Victim Advocate, Victim Honorarium, Probation and other costs. The first DWI Victim Impact Panel was held in Monroe County in January 1992. The Panel is offered as a sentencing tool for all DWAI and DWI offenders. Year

PRE-TRIAL FELONY DWI DIVERSION
PRE-TRIAL SERVICES CORPORATION Felony DWI Diversion is a deferred prosecution program whereby all criminal proceedings are delayed while the client engages in a planned treatment program. The client is monitored in the treatment program over a six to eight month period. Participation is voluntary and clients must agree to immediately surrender their driver's license upon entering the program and pay a program fee, if financially able. Clients are screened through the District Attorney's DWI Bureau before referral to the Diversion program. Successful completion of Felony DWI Diversion is based on the client's ability to demonstrate significant attitudinal and behavioral change, and results in an offer to plead to a misdemeanor in satisfaction of the felony charge. If the client fails to follow through on the treatment plan and the Diversion contract requirements, the case is returned to court for prosecution. Diversion is offered only once. Pre-Trial Felony DWI Diversion received $53,498 in STOP-DWI funds in 2008, a reduction of 1.2% over 2007. One hundred and seventy cases were seen for intake in 2008, which represented a 15% increase over 2007. 138 cases or 87% of all terminations were closed successfully in the year. Pre-Trial Services is committed to providing effective intervention with multiple DWI offenders and will continue to measure the long-term outcomes for the Felony DWI Diversion Program. 2008 Clients Seen For Intake Cases Closed Success Rate 170 138 87% 2007 148 110 80% 2006 138 90 87% 2005 129 94 85% 2004 86 52 89% 2003 83 99 88% 2002 120 120 83% 2001 166 158 80% 2000 203 163 80% 1999 175 104 72%

WEEKEND DWI SENTENCE PROGRAM AT THE DAY REPORTING CENTER PRE-TRIAL SERVICES CORPORATION Structured to provide a sentencing option for those convicted of DWI, the Weekend Sentence program offers an intervention-focused approach. Those sentenced to this program attend structured classes from Friday night through Sunday evening, addressing important issues such as alcohol abuse, personal responsibility and reducing risk-taking behaviors. Judges sentence offenders for a specific number of weekends. Clients are required to pay fees to help support the program. Both attendance and client progress are followed closely by the staff and reported back to the court. During 2008, the program experienced a 54% increase in the number of clients who were sentenced to the program. As in 2007, of those who completed within the year, 91% did so successfully. The average number of weekends spent in the program was eight. STOP-DWI funds supplied $103,850 to support this sentencing option in 2008. 2008 154 125 91% 2007 100 102 91% 2006 114 115 87% 2005 124 118 90% 2004 93 82 89% 2003 115 97 83% 2002 105 83 82% 2001 93 81 87% 13
