April, 2006

Dear Applicant:

I am pleased to announce that the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety is making funding
available for secure juvenile alternative lockup programs in Federal Fiscal Year 2006 via the Juvenile
Accountability Block Grant and Formula Grant Programs awarded to Massachusetts by the U.S.
Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency
Prevention.

The purpose of the Juvenile Accountability Block Grant Program in Massachusetts is to improve the
juvenile justice system by developing, adopting or improving policies and programs to reduce juvenile
delinquency, improve the juvenile justice system, and increase accountability for juvenile offenders.
The intention of the Formula Grant program is to improve the lives of juveniles in the Commonwealth
by preventing their involvement with the juvenile justice system and to improve the operation and
services provided within the juvenile justice system itself.

I recognize that the amount of funding available is small relative to the need for secure juvenile
alternative lockup programs in the Commonwealth. For this reason, I seek to make strategic
investments with this funding. Therefore, funded projects will be selected through a competitive
process. Selection criteria will include the ability to achieve results with modest resources.

I look forward to your proposal.

Sincerely,



Robert Haas

                                           Introduction
In an effort to maintain the Commonwealth of Massachusetts‟ level of compliance with the lockup
removal mandate of the federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA), the
Executive Office of Public Safety (EOPS) Programs Division is making Office of Juvenile Justice and
Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), Juvenile Accountability Block Grant (JABG), and Formula Grant
funds available for the continued operation of a secure juvenile alternative lockup network throughout
the Commonwealth.

The Executive Office of Public Safety Programs Division is the state agency designated to receive and
administer the OJJDP Juvenile Accountability Block Grant (JABG). The JABG program was initially
created under the provisions of the FY 1998 Commerce, Justice, State Appropriations Act, but it is
based on provisions contained in Title III of H.R. 3, the Juvenile Accountability Block Grants Act of
1997. The JABG program awards grants to states to address the growing problem of juvenile crime by
encouraging accountability-based reform at the state and local levels. For a comparison of provisions
under JABG and JAIBG, see the OJJDP Bulletin: Changes to OJJDP's Juvenile Accountability
Program.

The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA) of 1974, as amended, designates
Formula Grant money to fund specific programs that offer a high probability of improving the
functioning of the juvenile justice system and preventing youth from entering the juvenile justice
system.

Section 223(a)(14) of the JJDPA prohibits, with certain exceptions, the use of adult jails and lockups
for the incarceration of juveniles. In order to comply, police departments must adhere to the following
three conditions: status and non-offenders cannot be confined in a secure lockup for any length of time;
all juveniles must be separated from adult detainees; and juveniles accused of delinquent crimes may
be securely held for up to six hours. In addition, the Act requires states to monitor their detention
system and ensure compliance. In the past, Massachusetts violated the “six hour” rule, and lost federal
JJDPA funds that could have been allocated to innovative juvenile delinquency prevention programs.
Fortunately, Massachusetts achieved full compliance with this “six hour” rule in 1998, and will
maintain compliance with the “six hour” rule by continuing to fund the network of secure Alternative
Lockup Programs (ALP-Secure).

In an effort to ensure full coverage, EOPS has divided the Commonwealth into 4 regional coverage
areas, each to be served by one lead implementing agency. The breakdown of cities/towns within each
coverage area is as follows: Western Area (103), Central Area (78), Northeast Area (75), and Southeast
Area (89). The ALP-Secure programs are also responsible for providing services to State Police
barracks and college campus police departments located in towns within their coverage area. A
complete list of the communities located within each coverage area is attached. (See Attachments B, C,
D and E)




                                                   3
                                           ALP Purpose
The ultimate goal of the alternative lock up programs (ALP‟s) is to relieve police departments of the
burden of caring for alleged juvenile delinquents during non-court hours, thereby ensuring that no
juvenile is detained in a police lockup for longer than the federally mandated six-hour time limit. In
order to accomplish this goal, the ALP-Secure provider must provide a minimum of six beds, for use
by either males or females, located in an appropriate secure facility within the coverage area applied
for, to house alleged juvenile delinquents from the time of their arrest until their arraignment during
the next available court session. The ALP-Secure program provider must serve serious and violent
delinquent offenders who are arrested during non-court hours by law enforcement agencies within their
designated region. In the event of overflow in regions outside their purview, secure ALP‟s with
available bed space are encouraged to accept alleged juvenile delinquents from regions other than their
own. Juveniles age 14 and older who are accused of murder are considered to be under the jurisdiction
of the “adult” Trial Court, and therefore, would be excluded from ALP-Secure placement. Funding is
available under JABG Purpose Area 2 and Formula Grant Program Area 17.

The JABG Purpose Area 2 is defined as building, expanding, renovating, or operating temporary or
permanent juvenile correction, detention, or community corrections facilities.

The Formula Grant Program Area 17 is defined as programs, research, or other initiatives designed to
eliminate or prevent the placement of juveniles in adult jails and lockups, as defined in section 223 (a)
(13) of the JJDP Act of 2002.

                   Critical Elements of the Secure ALP Program
State agencies, local units of government, private, non-profit entities, or community-based
organizations are eligible to apply. Specific criteria for the aforementioned entities are outlined in the
Eligibility Requirements section of this application. State or local units of government may
subcontract to private, nonprofit entities, or community-based organizations to carry out the purposes
specified. Proposed programs must demonstrate the following:

   Have a clear understanding of the basic federal regulations regarding juvenile detention and how a
    secure facility will ensure continued compliance with these laws in the region for which they are
    applying. (See Attachment F)

   Accept referrals of alleged juvenile delinquents, utilizing a standard referral process, thereby
    assisting police departments to comply with the “six hour” secure detention limitation.

   Provide a short-term, juvenile-dedicated, secure alternative lockup facility for alleged juvenile
    delinquents until they can be brought to court for arraignment on their charges.

   Establish a “hotline” number available to all police departments for placements during non-court
    hours. This number should also be available to police during the hours prior to the court‟s closing
    when cases are no longer being processed.

   Provide informational services to law enforcement agencies on a 24-hour basis.




                                                     4
   Work collaboratively with the Department of Social Services (DSS) funded Non-Secure
    Alternative Lockup Programs. These programs are responsible for housing status and non-violent
    delinquent juvenile offenders until their arraignment. It is imperative that the Secure and Non-
    Secure programs work together to ensure the highest possible level of service to the law
    enforcement agencies within the coverage area.

   Utilize a standard assessment instrument for each referral to determine the youth‟s appropriateness
    for the program. Providers who are unable to demonstrate a prior history of working with Non-
    Secure ALPs in a manner that ensures all referrals receive prompt and trouble-free placement, may
    be required to use the attached charge sheet to determine proper placement of juveniles. EOPS and
    DSS will make the final determination as to whether or not the charge sheet will be implemented in
    a particular region. (See Attachment G)

   Resolve all calls from police departments within three hours. If a pager is used for the referral
    “hotline,” the initial return call to a police department must occur within 30 minutes of receiving
    the page. Within three hours of the initial call for service, the program shall have completed all
    steps necessary to ensure that the juvenile may begin to be transported from the department to the
    program. When responding to police calls for service in which a juvenile has spent more than three
    hours in a lockup, providers should make every effort possible to ensure the referral process can be
    completed prior to the six hour detention limit being reached.

   In the event that the ALP-Secure is filled to capacity, it is the responsibility of the ALP-Secure
    provider to locate an opening at the closest available ALP-Secure facility and provide directions to
    that facility for the referring police department, thereby coordinating placement between police and
    the alternate ALP-Secure provider.

   Assist other ALP-Secure programs throughout the Commonwealth by providing available bed
    space as needed in the event that another ALP-Secure is filled to capacity and/or is unable to accept
    any further referrals.

   Provide a minimum of six beds for nightly accommodations for male and/or female juvenile
    offenders.

   Meet regularly with police departments in the region to review the objectives and procedures of the
    project in order to ensure proper utilization of the program‟s resources.

   Maintain detailed demographic and detention records on participating youths in the ALP-Secure
    Program.

   Provide overnight accommodations for juveniles arrested by any municipal or college police
    department as well as state police barracks in the designated coverage area.

   Secure ALP‟s must either transport juveniles to court or make other appropriate arrangements.




                                                    5
   Satisfactory and timely submission of the Monthly Juvenile ALP Transportation Data Form to
    EOPS on or before the 5th business day of each month. This form contains the vital information of
    all juveniles transported with program funds during the previous month.

   Satisfactory and timely submission of incident reports.

   Adherence to all EOPS reporting requirements.


                                  Transportation Program
The purpose of the Transportation Program is to relieve the burden police departments have in
transporting serious and violent juvenile offenders to and from alternative lockup programs in the
Western region of the state. The application for funding must address the operation components
involved with transporting juveniles in police custody to and from the closest available secure ALP
including the following:

          In the event that the ALP-Secure is filled to capacity, it is the responsibility of the ALP-
           Secure provider to locate an opening at the closest available ALP-Secure facility and
           provide directions to that facility for the referring police department, thereby coordinating
           placement between police and the alternate ALP-Secure provider.

          Meet regularly with police departments and ALP‟s in the region to review the objectives
           and procedures of the project in order to ensure proper utilization of the program‟s
           resources.

          Transportation programs should market their service to police departments within their
           designated ALP Region.

          The programs must develop and utilize a transportation intake form. This form must be
           completed for each juvenile transported under this grant and forms must be made available
           to EOPS staff during monitoring site visits.

          Transportation programs should articulate a plan for nightly communication with secure
           ALP Programs to remain aware of available bed space.

          Transportation programs must demonstrate that they have a fleet of safe and reliable,
           insured vehicles provided for transporting youth to secure ALP‟s.

         The transportation programs developed under this grant must provide transportation to and
          from the secure ALP program for all juveniles referred by a police department and Secure
          Alternative Lockup Programs located within the western Secure ALP coverage area. (See
          attachment B)

   Please note that only juveniles being referred to a secure ALP are to be transported by this
program. Transportation of any juvenile being referred to a non-secure ALP is the responsibility
                                 of the non-secure ALP provider.




                                                    6
                                   Eligibility Requirements
Funding will be awarded to programs that submit the highest quality applications. Prior grantees will
be reviewed for previous adherence to EOPS guidelines as well as the level of program success as
determined by EOPS Grant Managers. Submission of an application does not guarantee an award.

JABG eligibility requirements mandate that state, local units of government, and private, non-profit
entities, or community-based organizations are eligible to apply. State or local units of government
may subcontract to private, nonprofit entities, or community-based organizations to carry out the
purposes specified. A unit of general local government is defined as a city, county, township, town,
borough, parish, village, or other general purpose political subdivision of a state. A local unit of
government may also be a law enforcement district or judicial enforcement district that is established
under applicable State law and has the authority to, in a manner independent of other State entities,
establish a budget and raise revenues. It should be noted that school districts are not considered units
of local government.

Formula Grant eligibility requirements mandate the same, however, non-public agencies must provide
proof that they have applied for and been denied for funding or sponsorship of the same or a similar
project and this must be submitted with the application. In this case, a letter from a state agency or unit
of general local government saying that no funding was available for the project and conformation that
no other state agency or local unit of government in the geographic area has proposed or is engaged in
the same or a similar program would suffice as justification for eligibility for a private agency.

In addition, local private applicants must also demonstrate adequate fiscal capacity to manage federal
funds and meet all state and federal conditions pertaining to the management and administration of
such funding. Local private non-profit applicants must submit documentation of status as a non-profit
entity and a copy of the most recent financial statement and audit (OMB A-133 audit if previously
required).

Please note that EOPS reserves the right to designate which grant stream the successful
applicants will be paid from. Grantees are expected to adhere to definitions and requirements
outlined in the guidelines for the funding source assigned to their program by EOPS. Therefore,
application responses should address the requirements of both JABG and Formula as described
in the application.

                                 Performance Measurement
JABG Program
OJJDP has developed systems to measure the effectiveness of the JABG and Formula Grant programs.
Through a process of reviewing existing literature (such as the Best Practices Bulletin Series) and
gathering feedback from grantees, the following mandatory indicators were selected to measure the
accomplishment of the most important objectives of the JABG and Formula programs.




                                                    7
JABG-funded projects must identify and report on the following mandatory output, short-term,
intermediate-term, and long-term outcome performance indicators that are bolded below as they apply
to their specific activities:

      Performance indicators

               Output
               1. Number and percent of eligible youth served using graduated sanctions
                  Approaches;
               2. Number and percent of staff salaries paid.

               Short-term
               1. Number and percent of program youth completing program requirements;
               2. Number of square feet per youth.

               Intermediate
               1. Number and percent of eligible youth served using Graduated Sanctions
                   approaches;
               2. Number and percent of youth placed elsewhere because of lack of space.

               Long Term Outcome
               1. Number and percent of program youth who re-offend.

Definitions of important terms and guidelines for using each indicator can be found on the OJJDP Web
site at: http://jabg.nttac.org/pmpacket.cfm then follow the link: Updated JABG PM Materials. These
should be reviewed carefully.

The reporting period for grantees that are selected for funding under the JABG will be for the duration
of 1-year (April 1 through March 31).

Formula Grant Program
Formula Grant funded projects, under Program Area 17, are required to report on all of the Formula
Grant Output Measures as defined at the link listed below. Additionally, as stated under Program Area
17, grantees funded with Formula Grant money must report on both Outcome Measures. Important
terms and guidelines for using Program Area 17 can be found on the following website:
http://www.dsgonline.com/performance measures.htm and should be reviewed carefully.

Applicants must briefly acknowledge the Output and Outcome Measure reporting requirements in the
application.

JABG and Formula Grantees will be required to submit quarterly programmatic and fiscal progress
reports containing basic program statistics that include race/ethnicity and gender-related data on
program participants. Grantees should consider developing and implementing additional Outcome
Measures, based on program need, to measure program success by showing how the program has
benefited targeted individuals or populations.




                                                   8
                                           Compliance
By submitting an application, a participating agency agrees to adhere to the following requirements:

1. Satisfactory and timely submission of quarterly programmatic and financial reports to the
   Executive Office of Public Safety Programs Division. In addition, timely submission of any
   Incident Reports are required. These reports are intended to measure the progress in meeting your
   stated goals and objectives, and to track expenditure of funds. Grantees are required to submit to
   EOPS their Quarterly Progress Report within 15 days after the end of each quarter. (1/15, 4/15,
   7/15, 10/15)

2. Completion and submission of Monthly Alternative Lockup Program – Secure Data Forms. These
   forms are designed to evaluate the utilization of the program and to assist EOPS staff in monitoring
   police departments in the coverage region for compliance with the JJDPA. (See Attachment H)

3. An assurance that any youth refused by a program will be reported to EOPS in writing explaining
   the circumstances surrounding the refusal of the youth and attached to that month‟s alternative
   lockup data submission.

4. Cooperation with EOPS monitoring, site visits, and participation in quarterly ALP providers‟
   roundtable meetings.

5. An assurance that JABG/Formula Grant funds will not be used to supplant local, state, or other
   federal funds. Supplanting of funds is prohibited. Funds for programs and services provided
   through this grant are intended to supplement not supplant other state or federal funding sources.
   Specifically that means that no position previously funded by the Massachusetts Legislature
   through a state agency may be supported with JJDPA Formula/ JABG Grant funds.

6. As stated in the Federal Guidelines of the General Sub-grant Conditions: If a sub-grantee chooses
   to implement the proposed project by further sub-granting to an implementing sub-grantee or an
   independent contractor, all or any part of the amount of this award, the sub-grantee shall include
   the provisions of these standard sub-grant conditions in a further sub-grant award or contract.
   Written acknowledgement of the receipt and understanding of the guidelines shall be submitted to
   EOPS by the sub-grantee for approval prior to the commencement of the program.

                                Sub-grantee Requirements
Successful applicants will receive a comprehensive grant-award package detailing all requirements of
the grant. A summary of grant requirements is provided here for your information and for your benefit
in preparing a proposal.

    behavioral management policy;
    physical restraint and mechanical restraint procedures and techniques;
    visiting policy;
    emergency procedures;

                                    Cash Match Requirement
A cash match, equal to ten percent (10%) of the total project cost, is required for secure ALP
Programs. Please refer to the Cash Match Computation section.

Federal funds may not exceed ninety (90%) of total program costs. Matching contributions need not
be applied at the exact time or in proportion to the obligation of federal funds. However, the full cash
match amount of ten percent (10%) of total program costs must be provided and obligated by the end
of the project period.

Construction or remodeling funding can only be provided via JABG dollars, and federal money cannot
pay for more than fifty percent (50%) of the construction or remodeling costs.

                                    Cash Match Computation
The recipient of an award must contribute (in the form of a cash match) ten percent (10%) of the total
program cost. The total program cost is made up of the federal award amount and the cash match. For
example, if the federal award is $80,000, the calculation of the match requirement is as follows:

1. Convert the federal award amount percentage to a fraction (i.e., 90% = 9/10).
2. Invert the fraction from 9/10 to 10/9.
3. Multiply the federal award amount by the numerator (i.e., $80,000 x 10).
4. Divide the result by the denominator to determine the total program cost (i.e., $800,000/9 =
   $88,889).
5. Subtract the amount of the federal award from the total program cost to determine the cash match
   (i.e., $88,889 - $80,000 = $8,889).




                                                       11
                                     Allowable Sources of Match
Allowable sources of cash match are as follows:
       Funds from states and units of local government;
       Housing and Community Development Act of 1974;
       Appalachian Regional Development Act;
       Equitable Sharing Program, a federal asset forfeiture distribution program to state and local
          officials; and
       Private funds.

                                                 Award Period
Funding for the programs will begin on July 1, 2006, and end on June 30, 2007.


Disproportionate Minority Contact and Youth Development Model
The Massachusetts Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee (JJAC) has chosen to focus on two primary
priority areas throughout each of its grant programs: disproportionate minority contact (DMC) and
youth development. Grant applicants must address both DMC and youth development in their
applications. Successful applicants will demonstrate that their proposed program will employ staff that
are culturally competent and have expertise in working with children of color. Successful applicants
must also indicate how they will utilize a youth development model “an approach to understanding and
supporting youth and young adults as they mature that incorporates a positive, multi-dimensional view
of their lives. For more information about DMC and youth development, please read the following
information:

Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC)
Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC) refers to the overrepresentation of minority youth in the
juvenile justice system at all points in the juvenile justice process.1 DMC is a problem in
Massachusetts and across the nation. In the United States, African American and Hispanic youth are
likely to be overrepresented at each stage of the juvenile justice process. At the secure confinement
stage, minority juveniles make up an increasingly larger segment of all juveniles incarcerated.

In Massachusetts in 2003, the secure detention rate for minority youth was approximately five times
higher than the white rate; the rate of minority youth residing in secure juvenile correctional facilities
was seven times higher than the white rate; and rate of minority youth living in non-secure correctional
facilities was four times higher than the white rate. The most overrepresented group in the
Massachusetts juvenile justice system is African American.2 In 2003, the African American secure
detention rate was over seven times greater than the white rate; the African American probation
placement rate was over twice as high as the white rate; the African American non-secure correctional
facility rate was almost six times higher than the white rate; and the African American secure juvenile

  Data from the Massachusetts Department of Youth Services, 2004. Compiled by the Executive Office of Public Safety,
2004. These rates were created by taking the number of youth at each of these stages of the juvenile justice system and
dividing by the total youth population (according to the 2000 U.S. Census).



                                                           12
correctional facility rate was twelve times higher than the white rate.3 Please note - these rates are
based on the total juvenile population and not on arrests or adjudications.

There are many theories as to why DMC exists, grounded in hypotheses such as:

            White youth may have access to better legal representation, who more vigorously advocate
             for their release.4
            White youth may have better access to programs and services in the community than
             minority youth.5
            Minority youth may be more likely to live in areas that are more aggressively policed and
             therefore result in more arrests.6
            People involved in the decision to detain a youth may bring stereotypes to their decision.7
            Minority youth may commit more offenses.8
            The offenses that minority youth commit may be more serious than the offenses that white
             youth commit.9

In the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA) of 2002, Congress required that
States participating in the Formula Grants Program “address juvenile delinquency prevention efforts
and system improvement efforts designed to reduce, without establishing or requiring numerical
standards or quotas, the disproportionate number of juvenile members of minority groups, who come
into contact with the juvenile justice system.” For purposes of this requirement, the Office of Juvenile
Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) have defined minority populations as American Indian
and Alaska Native, Asian, Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino, and Native Hawaiian or
other Pacific Islanders.

                                             Youth Development
EOPS and the JJAC expect grantee programs, to the fullest extent possible, to incorporate a Youth
Development approach to their programs. According to the Massachusetts Department of Public
Health and the Governor‟s Adolescent Health Council, youth development is “an approach to
understanding and supporting youth and young adults as they mature that incorporates a positive,
multi-dimensional view of their lives. There are six main aspects to the youth development approach:

    It is youth centered, focusing on young people‟s resources;
    It encourages meaningful youth participation in arenas that impact their development;
    It is asset-based, versus deficit-focused;
    It focuses on positive youth outcomes;
    It emphasizes and values caring relationships between youth and adults; and
    It involves the whole community.”10

The Massachusetts Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee (JJAC) has adopted a shared vision of youth
development, which is “all Massachusetts youth grow up to be healthy, caring, economically self-
sufficient adults.” This shared vision has five goals:

     1.   All youth have access to resources that promote optimal physical and mental health.
     2.   All youth have nurturing relationships with adults and positive relationships with peers.
     3.   All youth have access to safe places for living, learning and working
     4.   All youth have access to educational and economic opportunity.
     5. All youth have access to structured activities and opportunities for community service and civic participation

The EOPS and the JJAC intend to fund programs that incorporate a youth development focus into their
work to the fullest extent possible.

DEINSTITUTIONALIZATION OF STATUS OFFENDERS

Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act Section 223 (a) 14

 The JJDP Act provides that no status offender or non-offender be detained or confined in secure
  detention or correctional facilities.

       o Status Offenders include Child In Need of Services (CHINS), runaways, truants, stubborn
         child, juveniles charged with Minor in Possession of Alcohol and Protective Custody (a
         non-offense).
       o Secure Detention has occurred when a juvenile is physically detained in a locked room, set
         of rooms, or a cell, that is designated, set aside or used for the specific purpose of securely
         detaining persons in law enforcement custody.
       o Secure Detention can also occur by physically securing a juvenile to any stationary object
         such as a cuffing rail.
              Status Offenders may be handcuffed to moveable objects, such as a chair or bench.

 The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), since 1975, has provided an
  exception to allow pre-arraigned status and non offenders to be detained for up to 24 hours,
  excluding weekends and holidays, in a secure juvenile detention center.

Massachusetts General Laws (MGL) Ch. Sect 39H

 A child may be arrested for committing the behavior described in the definition of Child In Need of
  Services…..such child may not be securely detained in a police station or town lockup.

MINIMUM LOCKUP AGE – 14 YEARS OLD

MGL Ch. 119 Sect 67

 When discussing a juvenile being held securely in town/municipal lockups, only refers to juvenile
  between the ages of 14 and 17.

The Office of the Attorney General’s, Juvenile Procedures Manual for Police, therefore interprets that
no juvenile under the age 14 may be held securely in town/municipal lockup.

SIGHT AND SOUND SEPARATION FROM ADULT OFFENDERS

JJDP Act Section 223 (a) 13

 The JJDP Act provides that accused and adjudicated delinquent, status, and non-offender juveniles
  shall not have contact with incarcerated adults.

 In order to meet this separation requirement, sight and sound contact with adults is prohibited.

 Sight is defined as clear visual contact.

 Sound is defined as direct oral communication.

 Separation may be provided by architectural or procedural means.

 Sight and Sound contact that is both brief and inadvertent/accidental must be reported as a
  violation only if it occurs in secure areas of the facility that are dedicated to use by juvenile
  offenders.


JAIL ROMOVAL MANDATE

JJDP Act Section 223 (a) 14

 The JJDP Act provides that juveniles cannot be detained in any adult jail or lockup.

 OJJDP provides an exception to the requirement: an alleged delinquent offender may be detained in
  an adult jail/lockup, while separate from adults, for up to six hours.

 The Six-hour clock begins when the juvenile is placed in Secure Detention (a juvenile cell, locked
  room, or cuffed to a stationary object). The clock will stop when the juvenile is removed from
  Secure Detention, provided he/she is not returned to Secure Detention at any time.

   NO ONE has the authority to supercede the six-hour jail removal mandate.

* In the event that the arresting agency finds itself needing to refer a juvenile to an ALP and feels strongly that the ALP
  designated by this charge sheet is not in the best interest of the juvenile and/or the ALP, the referring agency has the
 authority to supersede this charge sheet and refer the youth to the ALP (Secure/Non-Secure) that they deem is most
appropriate.

* Unable to locate the charge? - use the charge on the sheet that most closely resembles the charge against the
  Juvenile to determine placement.

  a crime, use the crime that was attempted or conspired to determine placement of the juvenile.

* Warrants - to place a juvenile arrested on a warrant, use the original charge in the warrant to determine placement.

* Violation of Probation - use original charge to determine placement of juvenile.

CONTRACTOR VENDOR/CUSTOMER CODE:

INSTRUCTIONS: Any Contractor (other than a sole-proprietor or an individual contractor) must provide a listing of
individuals who are authorized as legal representatives of the Contractor who can sign contracts and other legally binding
documents related to the contract on the Contractor‟s behalf. In addition to this listing, any state department may require
additional proof of authority to sign contracts on behalf of the Contractor, or proof of authenticity of signature (a
notarized signature that the Department can use to verify that the signature and date that appear on the Contract or other
legal document was actually made by the Contractor‟s authorized signatory, and not by a representative, designee or
other individual.)

NOTICE: Acceptance of any payment under a Contract or Grant shall operate as a waiver of any defense by the
Contractor challenging the existence of a valid Contract due to an alleged lack of actual authority to execute the
document by the signatory.

For privacy purposes DO NOT ATTACH any documentation containing personal information, such as bank account
numbers, social security numbers, driver‟s licenses, home addresses, social security cards or any other personally
identifiable information that you do not want released as part of a public record. The Commonwealth reserves the right
to publish the names and titles of authorized signatories of contractors.

listing are current as of the date of execution below and that these individuals are authorized to sign contracts and other
legally binding documents related to contracts with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on behalf of the Contractor. I

to any state department with which the Contractor does business whenever the authorized signatories above retire, are
otherwise terminated from the Contractor‟s employ, have their responsibilities changed resulting in their no longer being
authorized to sign contracts with the Commonwealth or whenever new signatories are designated.
