2 Overview Treatment and offender management strategies through the criminal court process. Those that lead to better outcomes Those that make most efficient use of resources

3 Risk and Need Agreement Need for supervision Need for treatmen t Disagreement How to determine how much is appropriate.

4 Risk and Need By offense By assessment By offender history Etc. Disagreement How to determine how much is appropriate. Answer: Yes

5 Risk and Need Supervision Options Treatment Options Intensive Treatment Less Intensive Supervision Intensive Treatment Intensive Supervision Less Intensive Treatment Less Intensive Supervision Less Intensive Treatment Intensive Supervision Criminal History Current Charge Assessment

6 Risk and Need Assessment Identifies level of risk an offender currently poses (Risk to Re-Offend) Level of treatment services needed

7 Risk and Need Risk- Validated risk assessments are based on the “Big Eight” Risk Factors: Antisocial Attitudes Antisocial Associates History of Antisocial Behavior Antisocial Personality Pattern Problematic Circumstances at Home Problematic Circumstances at School or Work Lack of Pro-social Leisure Activities Substance Abuse

8 Risk and Need Need- Validated screening or assessment to determine level of substance use disorder and co- occurring mental health disorder: High Treatment Need: Substance Dependence/ Mental Health Disorder Lower Treatment Need: Substance Abuse/ No Mental Health Disorder

9 Risk and Need High Risk High Need Low Risk High Need High Risk Low Need Low Risk Low Need

10 Risk and Need Research identifies that matching levels of supervision and treatment with risk and need levels of an offender results in significantly better outcomes.

11 Risk and Need Providing too few resources produces inadequate effect for the offender and leads to poorer outcomes Just right Providing too many resources can not only waste available services and personnel time, but also leads to poorer outcomes for the offender. Requiring someone with a high likelihood to reoffend to only check in one time per month. Requiring someone with a low treatment need to attend an intensive treatment program (ex. Residential substance abuse treatment)

12 Risk and Need Offender Screenings New legislation authorized on November 1, 2012 OK ST T. 43A

13 Risk and Need Treatment providers conduct a risk, mental health, and substance abuse screen to identify what quadrant describes the most accurate current picture of offender attributes. Make referrals for prison diversion programs with this information.

14 Risk and Need High Risk High Need Low Risk High Need High Risk Low Need Low Risk Low Need

15 Specialty Courts Target Populations: High Risk/High Need Offenders Accept DUI and DWI Offenders Non-violent Prison Bound

16 Specialty Courts Specialty Court Teams: Made up of judges, district attorneys, defense attorneys, treatment providers, law enforcement, and coordinators. Oversee court and treatment compliance through a structured process. Hold the participants accountable for successes and violations.

30 DATA SHARING

31 DATA SHARING The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services and the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety have been working together to create an electronic data sharing plan

32 DATA SHARING This is a multi-phased project intended to enhance the efficiency of the process

33 PHASE ONE DPS will send electronic records of all license revocation related to DUI, DWI, APC certain drug convictions, etc. to ODMHSAS STATUS ~ Nearing completion

34 PHASE TWO ODMHSAS will send electronic record of all offenders completing all license reinstatement requirements to DPS STATUS ~ Some initial work completed

35 PHASE THREE DPS will inform of license reinstatements to ODMHSAS STATUS ~ Proposed

36 DATA SHARING BENEFITS Assessment quality will greatly increase Fraud and abuse will be greatly reduced or eliminated The system will become more responsive in “real time” Both Agencies will be able to better identify future trends and problems
