HOLLEY BOSSELL,Transitional Control/Residential Placement Administrator, Bureau of Community Sanctions, ODRC
MATTHEW MORRIS, Audit Administrator, Bureau of Community Sanctions, ODRC
Over much of the last five years, the Bureau of Community Sanctions (BCS) has worked closely with community corrections agencies to implement evidence based practices which have been shown to reduce recidivism in the offender populations we work with. With this task, both agency and bureau staff have focused heavily on programming and treatment, and have realized significant improvements in program modalities. However, given this focus, the need to get “Back to the Basics” has been identified in regards to audit preparation, standard requirements, and expectations of the Transitional Control Program and electronic monitoring.
This training will focus on the above, and be ideal for new program directors and agencies who have experienced significant staff turnover since the BCS audit process was modified or Transitional Control supervision was transferred to halfway house staff. The training will be divided into two parts. During the first session, participants will receive training in how to prepare audit files and demonstrate compliance with BCS General Audit Standards. The second will focus on Halfway House Specific Audit Standards with a focus on Transitional Control and electronic monitoring requirements. During this session, participants will receive training in the following: orientation and intake expectations, financial obligations, allowable program and pass activities, release planning, the behavior management system, terminations, violator at large and BOLO process, administrative returns, medical and mental health procedures, and incident report writing. Participants will be afforded ample time to ask detailed questions, and gain a thorough understanding of these processes.
