CJCC Overview As an independent agency, the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC) for the District of Columbia is dedicated to continually improving the administration of criminal justice in the city. The Mission of the CJCC is to serve as the forum for identifying issues and their solutions, proposing actions, and facilitating cooperation that will improve public safety and the related criminal and juvenile justice services for District of Columbia residents, visitors, victims and offenders. The CJCC draws upon local and federal agencies and individuals to develop recommendations and strategies for accomplishing this mission. The guiding principles are creative collaboration, community involvement and effective resource utilization. CJCC is committed to developing targeted funding strategies and the comprehensive management of information through the use of integrated information technology systems and social science research.

Scope of the Problem: Truancy Initiative Schools (TIS) Note: Top 6 Truancy Initiative Schools (TIS) selected using combination of truancy rate & enrollment size
Taking Action: What Are We Doing To Get There? Middle Schools Expand TCDP from 2 to up to 6 schools High Schools increase staffing by $800K and increase case management Elementary Schools Increase Referrals from 18% to 100% The Office of Youth Engagement provides: tools, training, and support including assistance in forming partnerships, services for parenting teens, and Early Warning Interventions. Schools directly provide engagement with parents and communities, innovative supports, and a positive school culture Schools Central Office Central Office Support: Attendance targets included & tracked in CSPs, DC STARS updates to track root causes, interventions & MPD pick-ups, TruancyStat
Planned Truancy Interventions 2012-2013 InterventionExplanationMeasure of Success Beginning with training in July and implementation in August, DCPS will comply with all referral requirements at all schools (Elementary Grades) DCPS will centrally monitor unexcused absences logged at each school and the number of referral calls made by each school to ensure complete compliance DCPS will track changes in referral and truancy rates compared to prior years noting differences by school and grade level to ensure 100% compliance with referral rates. At the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year, DCPS will expand use of The Truancy Court Diversion Program (TCDP) in middle schools. (Middle Grades) While truancy rates are not at their highest in middle schools, we already have data to indicate which students are prone to truancy leading to our 9 th grade crisis. DCPS will track In Seat Attendance rates for students who participate in the TCDP to increase ISA for all participating students. Through the High School Case Management Initiative, DCPS provides case management support to a cohort of 9 th graders at TIS High Schools. While the first year of the program did not lead to reduced truancy rates, more families gained access to needed social services. DCPS will work with CFSA and human services to enhance the partnership. Working with the truancy task force, DCPS will track the number of students referred for social services, monitor progress in the reduction in truancy rates in the population and ensure increase in ISA. Beginning at the start of the 2012- 2013 school year, DCPS will add 8 social workers at the six schools with the highest truancy rates (TIS High Schools) DCPS will provide dedicated staff members to each of the six schools that account for the greatest number of truant students to assist in calling parents, working with students and making referrals. DCPS will track changes in truancy rates compared to prior years at the six targeted schools, compare changes in truancy rates in the six targeted schools to changes as compared to other DCPS schools and to ensure decrease in truancy.

Collaboration with DOC for release planning. 3. Expanding the Substantial Compliance Model to adult probation/parole matters. 4. Collaboration with BOP for release planning. 5. Resource mapping. 6. Examining performance based outcomes in treatment and criminal justice standards/outcomes. 7. Coordinating grant opportunities/Identification of grants. 8. Integrated co-occurring treatment providers. 9. Expanding housing options. 10. Basic information regarding service coordination. 11. Expansion of Mental Health Community Court to post-adjudication.
Mental Health and Substance Abuse Education The Substance Abuse Treatment and Mental Health Services Integration Taskforce’s (SATMHSIT) first annual Conference, “The Intersection of Mental Health Services, Substance Abuse Recovery, and the Criminal Justice System” was held on July 27, 2012. Educated key stakeholders on current issues, developments, and ways to further collaborate on the substance abuse and mental health issues in the criminal justice system.
DOC Discharge Planning Workgroup CJCC Discharge Planning Subcommittee to examine further collaboration with DOC in order to better serve our substance abuse and mental health population upon release. Currently, the group is working to coordinate medication planning for releasees who have mental health and substance abuse issues.
Substantial Compliance Model for Parolees USPC creation of a special docket for responding to non- compliance of mentally ill non-violent parolees instead of revocation. Total # of dockets held: 11Total # of warrants issued: 6 # of initial hearings conducted: 19 # of warrants issued for failure to report for MH docket: 2 # of status (re-) hearings conducted: 10 # of warrants issued for failing to comply with case plan: 4 Total # of individuals currently considered substantially compliant: 13
Substantial Compliance Model for Parolees (cont.) Next Steps: Extend Pilot through April 2013 Phase II (October 2012 – January 2013) Add 2 additional CSOSA male teams Add remaining CSOSA female team Increase to 6-8 cases per docket Phase III (February 2013 – April 2013) Add remaining CSOSA male teams Analysis of data collected during Phase I and Phase II
CSOSA/BOP Release Planning Collaboration Information Sharing Process to Enhance Continuity of Care CSOSA and the BOP are now working closely together on the transfer of health-related information to facilitate continuity of care and have implemented two strategies to facilitate such transfers. BOP is now sending CSOSA mental health and medical information on all DC inmates housed at their Federal Medical Centers (FMCs) that are within 90 days of release. DC inmates with severe mental health disorders or serious medical problems housed at prison facilities (other than FMCs), CSOSA is now able to request the necessary records from a designated BOP point of contact. One potential data sharing solution is the automated transmission of mental health and medical information from the BOP to CSOSA. BOP has formed a multidisciplinary committee to address the technological, privacy, and workforce challenges associated with this option.
CSOSA/PSA/APRA Explore Enhancements to the Client Referral and Intake Process On August 8, 2012, APRA representatives briefed CSOSA and PSA staff on APRA’s automated client information system, District Automated Treatment Accounting (DATA). APRA requested that CSOSA and PSA complete various screens in the DATA system prior to referring an individual to APRA. One of the major advantages of this information sharing process would be the communication of already existing substance abuse and recovery information from CSOSA to APRA before assessment. Another advantage of this information sharing process would be CSOSA staff being able to track and rapidly determine the participation status of all referrals. CSOSA and PSA workgroup is recommending that a two-fold strategy be pursed with regards to accessing APRA’s DATA system: ◦ Near term approach involving manual input of relevant client referral data ◦ Long term approach involving linkage of IT systems to automatically import client referral data
Resource Mapping CJCC developed an online resource locator– a publicly accessible, interactive online resource guide for both criminal justice practitioners and community members. It is slated for release late fall. The resource locator is designed to enhance access to mental health and substance abuse treatment needs, as well as other social service needs.
Performance-Based Outcomes Workgroup Creation of the CJCC Performance Based Outcomes Workgroup to examine measures for performance based outcomes for treatment providers and criminal justice agencies. Currently, a review of current partner agency performance measures is underway.
Grant Coordination New mechanism established by CJCC to identify and notify the partner agencies of local and federal grant opportunities. This includes a written grant detail review for the partners. CJCC will continue these efforts in the upcoming year by expanding its coordination efforts.
