2 New York State Criminal Justice System 500 local police agencies arrest 600,000 annually. 62 locally elected county district attorneys prosecute arrests. 58 jail systems (57 counties + NYC) house 30,000 inmates: detainees and those sentenced to 1 year or less. Probation is county run, supervise 115,000. One agency now oversees prison (54,000 inmates) and parole (36,000 parolees). Strong network of alternative to incarceration and re-entry providers, especially in NYC. 2

10 Operation IMPACT Crime Reduction Program $13 million funds 17 counties which report 80% of crime outside NYC. Jurisdictions must use data driven strategies to reduce and prevent crime. Grants support crime analysts at each site. Specialized crime analysis centers in four counties. Data is shared among centers and with state s Fusion center. 63% of crime and incidents outside of NYC can be searched with a single query. 10

11 Grantee Using Data in Operation IMPACT IMPACT grantees required to hold monthly meetings w/partners: review crime trends and strategy. Grantees must attend State deliberation meeting where strategy, status, partnership, and challenges are presented. Sites required to report monthly data to DCJS, and data is monitored closely and widely distributed. State DCJS analyzes crime trends for the 17 jurisdictions and selects crimes of focus. Competitive Request for Application (RFA) considers crime volume, rates and quality of proposal. 11

26 Results First Cost Benefit Project Cost Benefit initiative used to prepare criminal justice investment advice for policy makers. Created by Washington State in the mid s, currently being implemented by numerous other states. Estimates impact of criminal justice programming or sentencing changes on public safety (crime and confinement). 26

27 Results First Cost Benefit Project Used to help predict which programs will achieve the best results at the lowest cost. Good fit for New York: Strong support from Governor s office. Comprehensive criminal justice data. Strong research capability. Will add a consistent, formal cost benefit methodology. 27

28 Having a Technical Cost-Benefit Model is Meaningless Without: 1) Targeting Programming targeted to right person through risk and needs assessment. 2) Quality Assurance Ensure funded programs operate with fidelity. 3) Evaluation Annual outcome studies of recidivism and other expected program results. 28

29 70% 60% Time to Reconviction Felons: Prison Releases by Risk Level 55% 63% 69% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% 41% 43% 38% 30% 21% 20% 17% 15% 9% 11% 6% 2% Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 High Risk Moderate Risk Low Risk N = 2006 Releasees with a Risk 29

30 Offender Risk Influences Program Outcomes Preliminary review of employment programs showed largest gains on riskiest offenders. Moderate and high risk offenders showed the largest differences in arrest/violation rates of participants compared to nonparticipants. The employment programs made little difference for low risk participants. Reserve expensive slots and intensive programming for high risk offenders. 30

31 One Year Arrest and Violation Rates for Employment Program Participants by Risk Level 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% LOW RISK: 5 Percentage Point Difference 18% 2% 8% 16% 15% Participants N=389 23% Non-Participants N=6,229 34% 4% 30% Participants N=384 48% 11% 37% Non-Participants N=5,988 HIGH RISK: 21 Percentage Point Difference 53% 7% 46% Participants N=498 Low Moderate High Low Moderate High 74% 12% 62% Non-Participants N=11,258 Arrest No Arrest but Violation 31

32 Strengthening Community Sentences and Alternative Programs Most sentenced offenders receive sentences to jail or probation (not prison). Drug courts, other problem solving courts, and alternative to incarceration programs widely used in New York. Recidivism rates are high, especially for younger offenders. Results First Business Model will add more precision to our funding efforts. 32

33 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% Time to Reconviction Felons: Jail and Probation Sentences 27% 22% 11% 6% 43% 34% 22% 11% 55% 41% 30% 15% 61% 45% 36% 18% 65% 48% 40% 20% 0% Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Jail Under 25 Jail 25 and Over Probation Under 25 Probation 25 and Over

34 Reconviction Activity for Year Old Felons and Misdemeanants Sentenced to Jail 80% 70% 60% 50% 48% 58% 55% 65% 61% 70% 67% 40% 30% 20% 10% 26% 15% 41% 0% Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Misdemeanor Felony

35 Results First Next Steps: Strengthen Alternative to Incarceration Network Identify regions with need, populations to be targeted, and program models to be considered. Maximize ROI, but craft a Balanced Portfolio. Require Risk and Needs Assessment for all program entrants (centralized system available to grantees). Require grantees to report case specific data. Analyze case data to confirm risk of those served, and conduct recidivism studies (controlling for risk). Use results to inform future funding decisions. 35

36 An Ongoing Fidelity Component is Essential to Achieve Expected Outcomes Dedicate a small percentage of contract dollars to quality assurance. Don t waste expensive programs on individuals who do not need it, or who are not likely to be positively impacted. If the wrong people are targeted, there may be no impact, or even a negative impact. Program evaluations (recidivism studies) will be conducted by DCJS staff to confirm expected results are achieved. Discontinue programs with poor results. 36

37 Proposed Business Model Analyze Population and Program Needs Recommend Programming Through Cost Benefit Analysis Implement Programming Verify Program Quality (Fidelity) Evaluate Program Outcomes Confirm Results are as Expected Use Results to Inform Future Funding Decisions 37
