Title:

Revised: Budget Amendment (Revenue Increase) - Criminal Justice Services

 

Summary

ACTION:

Recognize, receive and appropriate for fiscal year 2018 $37,048.00 in funding from Cardinal Innovations Healthcare to support local jail diversion efforts related to the Stepping Up Initiative

 

Staff Contact:                      Sonya L. Harper, Director of Criminal Justice Services

 

Presentation:                     No

 

 

BACKGROUND/JUSTIFICATION:

Stepping Up is a national NACo initiative geared towards addressing behavioral health in jail populations across the country.  Cardinal approached CJS about utilizing the funding since our Forensic Evaluations Unit already conducts a significant amount of jail diversion work and the FEU Lead Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Stephen Strzelecki, co-chairs our local Stepping Up committee. The funding

will be used to make a technology upgrade to Correct Care’s computer system so that mental health cases can be flagged as they enter the jail and are connected with Correct Care staff.  Once we are

able to identify those within the jail with behavioral health needs, we can link them with community based services.
