4 To: Honorable David L. Mackey Presiding Judge, Yavapai County Superior Court From: Billie Grobe, Chief Yavapai County Adult Probation Date: January 10, 2011 Re: Second Annual Report, Fiscal Year 2009/2010 Fiscal Year 2009/2010 has been a challenging yet rewarding year. While our workforce has decreased in size (down from 102 to 86 of 99 authorized positions filled), we continue to fulfill our mission: To enhance community safety by holding offenders accountable to crime victims, the Court, and the community; and reducing or eliminating future criminal behavior through accurate and ongoing assessment, appropriate, evidence based treatment, individualized case management, and monitoring behavior. This is our second annual report. In it, we have highlighted programs listed on our website, using personal stories and data to provide a more robust picture of what we do, day in and dayout. If we sound like we re bragging about our successful outcomes, it s because we are! We are very proud of the changes we have made in our approach to supervision: our focus has been and continues to be on careful assessment, individualized case planning and case management, building relationships, responding with swift sanctions for violation behavior, and rewarding pro social behavior. The evidence based probation practices put into place over the last few years have had a significant impact on successful completions of probation; reductions in petitions to revoke probation; restoration of victims; and restoration of communities. The successes outlined in this report do not get done without the hard work and dedication of employees. Our staff has been engaged in bringing our mission to life through involvement in policy development and refinement; learning new techniques and practices; building new processes in alignment with our strategic plan; and improving relationships with our community partners. On behalf of the entire department, we thank you and the entire bench for your support of our mission and goals to make Yavapai County a safer place to live. Page 4

6 Access to Recovery (ATR) Oftentimes, when individuals are placed on probation for a drug related crime, they are court ordered to complete a substance abuse treatment program. These programs and associated services can often cost thousands of dollars and place probationers in a very difficult position. They want to comply with the court but are often unable to do so due to the cost of treatment. Access to Recovery (ATR) is a federal grant that allows eligible probationers to pay for the services they need to comply with the court s order and stay clean and sober. Yavapai County Adult Probation was able to create a strong working relationship with many different service providers in the community as a result of the ATR grant. These providers include substance abuse therapists, residential treatment facilities, recovery home programs, dental health providers, transportation specialists such as taxi providers, and faith based peer support providers. ATR is based upon client choice. When a client first begins participating in the ATR program, he or she is given a wide variety of services from which to choose. For example, a person may state that he needs to participate in substance abuse treatment. He can choose from the list of approved substance abuse providers. Payment is made directly to the provider via a voucher system. Over this past year, ATR helped over 80 individuals within our community get and stay clean and sober. Over 40 different providers have stepped up to offer services to these individuals. ATR paid these various providers over $297,000 to provide needed services to our participants. As our participants took advantage of the provided services, they were able to live healthy, lawabiding lifestyles. It is due to the willingness of our providers and their desire to help our community that ATR has been able to have such a strong impact here in Yavapai County. The following chart gives us a statistical picture of just how much of an impact ATR had on participants over the past three years as they worked to stay clean and sober just six months into participation: In the past 30 days % at Intake % at 6 month follow up % Change clients reporting alcohol use 22.4% 6.5% 71.1% clients reporting intoxication 5+ drinks 11.4% 2.6% 77.3% clients reporting intoxication 1 4 drinks 12.9% 4.6% 64.0% clients reporting illegal drug use 40.0% 6.5% 83.8% clients reporting both alcohol and illegal drug use 13.5% 1.8% 87.0% clients reporting marijuana use 10.6% 2.4% 77.8% clients reporting heroin use 2.4% 1.2% 50.0% clients reporting 87.3% 37.1% 4.7% methamphetamine use Page 6

7 IPS Performance Measures Each year the State of Arizona, through the Arizona Supreme Court s Administrative Office of the Court (AOC), measures performance in each county s Adult Probation Department (APD). The AOC has set measures that each APD reports its progress toward. The Intensive Probation Supervision program (IPS) has additional measures from those required of Standard Probation that includes treatment participation, employment, IPS FY 2010 Performance Measures paying restitution, not testing positive on drug and alcohol % % tests, community restitution 80.00% work compliance, and not going 60.00% to jail or DOC. As can be seen in 40.00% the adjacent graph, the Yavapai 20.00% County APD has surpassed the 0.00% statewide average in four of the six categories and effectively tied in the other two. We also met and far surpassed the expected statewide results in paying restitution. Treatment Program Full-Time Employ Pay Restitution Not Positive CWS No Jail/DOC 100% 80% 60% 40% 20% 0% Yavapai County APD Statewide Average Expected Statewide An example of a probationer who succeeded in all these areas is Brenda Gray. Brenda is a 60 year old woman who has been in and out of our criminal system, suffers from alcoholism, and was put on IPS in the fall of 2009 (following six months in jail) after incurring new charges including Harassment, Theft, and Aggravated Assault. When she was released, her Probation Officer, Carlos Zuniga, had her attend Intensive Out Patient treatment at the Verde Valley Guidance Clinic (VVGC), AA meetings, and worked with her regarding the IPS requirements. She got a sponsor, worked full time, paid her fines, and did her Community Restitution Work. She was transferred this summer to Standard Probation after successfully completing IPS. She is currently doing well and is still in the Women in Recovery therapy group at VVGC. When asked to be in this story, Brenda said she was honored, wanted her name and picture used, and said I m grateful to be on probation. Officer Zuniga and Brenda Gray at the Jerome Fire Station where she performed Community Restitution Work. Carlos Zuniga says about Ms. Gray: When I first started supervising Brenda, I did not have much hope for her due to her prior record and offense. She was an alcoholic who got her stuff together and completed her Court ordered requirements while at the same time living in Jerome. That is huge! Page 7

8 Standard Officers Reduce Revocations In an effort to increase community safety, reduce costs, and increase the use of Evidence Based Practices, the Yavapai County Adult Probation Department (APD) has been attempting to reduce the number of Petitions to Revoke (PTRs) that are not based on new crimes. These PTRs are called Technicals Only PTRs because the APD is petitioning the Court to revoke probation based only on violations of the technical conditions of probation, as the probationer has not committed any new law violations. Officers are encouraged to work more with probationers to change negative behaviors and anti social thinking instead of simply sending probationers to jail YCAPD Technicals Only PTRs Filed or prison knowing they will be released back into our community 320 with the same criminogenic risk and 400 needs. Officers are given tools for probationers such as cognitive skills 133 Standard 200 programming; officers are also IPS expected to use intermediate 100 sanctions prior to incarceration. One 0 FY 08 FY 09 FY 10 can see in the graph of Technicals Only PTRs that Standard officers have reduced the number of this type of PTR significantly over the last two years. A success story related by Probation Officer Chris Healy tells of a Standard probationer, who we will call Katherine, who was convicted in two different cases of four separate felony offenses. Early in her probation, Katherine was serving jail time but was allowed to leave for employment. She violated her conditions and her work release was revoked. She also failed to comply with the APD s directives for accountability. Instead of petitioning the Court to revoke Katherine s probation, Officer Healy continued to work with her. Katherine has remained employed, has been making monthly restitution payments of over $300 without fail, has completed her cognitive skills groups, and is enrolled in alcohol abuse treatment. She has become a model probationer! Chris Healy at Motivational Interviewing training with Officer Andy Gaul (right) and Supervisor Harold Cook. When Chris Healy s co workers, Officers John Daniels and Annette Travis, were asked about Technical PTRs, they responded as follows: Daniels: With minor violations, we are providing more help through services. We have a higher success rate with probationers, and the probationers are more honest with us because of that. Travis: Open communication is important; we are here to help. Daniels: Help them achieve success in their personal lives instead of being sent to prison. Page 8

9 Community Restitution Program (CRP) The Yavapai County Adult Probation Community Restitution Program (CRP) provides opportunities for probationers ordered by the court to perform community restitution. Participants give back and restore the harm done to their community by furthering their education, working individually at non profit or government agencies, and/or participating in our department run work crew. Through its Coordinator and Surveillance Officers, the CRP advocates pro social behavior which occurs when someone acts to help another person, particularly when they have no goal other than to help a fellow human. Each probationer is interviewed by the Coordinator to best match his or her skills and abilities to the needs of the agency, at no cost to the agency. During fiscal year 2010, the CRP recorded 63,245 hours of community restitution service, for an average of 5,270 hours of service per month. Based on a minimum wage scale, these hours represented a cost savings to our community and stakeholders of $458,526. The Coordinator interviewed and placed 489 probationers during fiscal year and maintained an average caseload of 600 probationers. In fiscal year , 282 probationers successfully completed their court ordered community restitution. In November 2009, Yavapai County Supervisor Chip Davis introduced Dead Horse State Park representatives Max Castillo and Les Bovie to the Coordinator to discuss their request for assistance in maintaining the park due to financial restraints. According to Supervisor Davis, the State Parks in Yavapai County are an economic engine, and he encourages the collaboration of the CRP and the State Parks whenever possible. Over a period of approximately six months, our crews dedicated 1,050 hours of service to Dead Horse State Park, a value of approximately $7,612. Park Ranger Randy Victory stated I am impressed with the crew s work; they are very enthusiastic. Park Ranger Max Castillo related The crew has gotten to projects our staff would not have been able to get to. Our crews continue to provide such services. Our partnerships with Yavapai County Government, Facilities Management, Public Works and Roads, Developmental Services, and Fleet Management cover the entire county. Our crews assist in weed abatement, trash removal from county lands, general landscaping of parks and cemeteries, and washing of county vehicles. During fiscal year 2010, the crews dedicated 4,055 hours of service directly to Yavapai County s citizens, for a cost savings of $29,398.

10 Specialized Sex Offender Supervision The Specialized Sex Offender Supervision caseloads, comprised of three probation officers and two surveillance officers, supervise those probationers sentenced to probation for a sex offense and/or sexually related offense, and the defendant is given sex offender specific conditions of probation. It is also utilized for those probationers who are not currently on probation for a sex offense; however, they have a history of sexual offending. These officers provide increased supervision and surveillance for these populations living in our communities. On a fairly regular basis, sexual offenders are sentenced to the Arizona Department of Corrections prior to being supervised on probation. Officers track these inmates so when the probationer is released from incarceration, there is a smooth transition into the community. If the probationer s offense is designated a Dangerous Crime Against Children, the probationer is subject to GPS (Global Positioning System) Monitoring. These cases are monitored via ProTech equipment and software by two surveillance officers. During FY2009/2010, there were three caseloads within the Yavapai County Adult Probation Department assigned to the supervision of these offenders, two in Prescott and one in the Verde Valley. The total numbers for these caseloads at the end of FY2009/2010 are as follows: Active Cases: 108 GPS (Global Positioning System) Cases: 11 Arizona DOC Cases: 53 For most probationers on these caseloads, internet access is limited and monitored to ensure that additional victims are not created and new crimes are not committed. If the probationer has a computer in their residence and they wish to have internet access, they must agree to and sign Sex Offender Computer Usage Guidelines and agree to have IPPC (Internet Probation & Parole Control) monitoring software installed on their computer to allow monitoring of their internet exploration. At this time, there are currently 11 probationers being monitored. Prior to the IPPC software being placed onto a probationer s computer, a search is completed using FieldSearch software. This software allows probation staff to search via keywords and/or images. The Yavapai County Adult Probation Department, in conjunction with treatment agencies, utilizes the containment approach to the supervision of sexual offenders. The containment approach is as follows: Probation + Treatment + Polygraphs = Containment. This model of supervision allows for open communication by all parties, verification of disclosed information, and acknowledgement of undisclosed information. Page 10

11 Global Positioning System (GPS) Commencing November 1, 2006, Arizona law stated that all offenders on Probation for Dangerous Crimes Against Children are to be monitored via GPS tracking. Yavapai County Adult Probation volunteered to be the Northern Regional Monitoring Center for this new program. The Monitoring Analysts in Yavapai County are responsible for tracking GPS Probationers in all seven Northern Arizona Counties (Apache, Coconino, Gila, La Paz, Mohave, Navajo, and Yavapai). From the ground up, Yavapai County officers have been instrumental in helping write and enact GPS policy for the state of Arizona. Many hours have been spent by Yavapai County officers at the Administrative Office of the Courts networking with other counties in order to help achieve the best practices for the GPS program. Yavapai County s method of documenting GPS information and violations has also been used as an example for the entire state. Our experience in this program is evident in that one of our officers has been involved in all aspects of implementing GPS since its inception. The Regional Monitoring Analysts responsibilities are many. They are required to track each minute of every GPS probationer s day. They inform fellow officers in our county as well as the other counties of their respective GPS probationer s locations and violation status. On the logistical end, they keep records of GPS equipment throughout the region as well as a log of who is required to be on GPS and assigned to the GPS program immediately upon release from prison. In fiscal year 09/10, a total of 41 sex offenders were tracked via GPS in the Northern Region. In fiscal year 09/10, GPS was used numerous times to help enhance public safety. Monitoring Analysts have indentified many restricted locations that sex offenders have visited, such as residential addresses in which children reside. Such locations are relayed to supervising officers and, subsequently, these probationers were held accountable for their actions. GPS is also a useful forensic tool for investigations; offenders can be confirmed as being present or absent at the scene of a new crime. GPS is a wonderful new tool we have to aid in enhancing public safety and keeping individuals accountable to their fellow citizens. Yavapai County is proud to be at the forefront of this program and looks forward to continuing its work in this area for the citizens of Yavapai County and the entire state of Arizona.

12 Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) Success is the sum of all efforts, repeated day in and day out by Robert Collier My name is Cianeane and I am a grateful recovering addict. For years I have struggled with the disease of addiction to meth and marijuana. I have been through various programs, halfway houses and even inpatient treatment. I always felt like I was fighting to stay clean and would end up relapsing. When I first joined MRT, I thought it was going to be another failed attempt at my recovery. But as each week went by, I learned more about myself and my addiction and my behaviors which kept me in my addiction. The MRT program not only taught me to change my behavior, but the way I deal with everyday problems without having to use. MRT saved my life!! I owe the success of my recovery to MRT and have been clean since April 16, That s a miracle for me. MRT Moral Reconation Therapy is a step by step strategy designed to lower arrests and incarcerations of participants. It is widely recognized as an Evidence Based Practice, as well as a Best Practice by numerous official governmental agencies and treatment authorities. MRT is a SAMHSA NREPP Evidence Based cognitive behavioral approach. The MRT program has the participants focus on seven basic areas: confrontation of beliefs attitudes and behaviors assessment of current relationships reinforcement of positive behavior and habits positive identity formation: enhancement of self concept decrease in pleasure seeking behaviors and development of frustration tolerance development of higher stages of moral reasoning Yavapai County Adult Probation utilizes Moral Reconation Therapy as a means for probationers to develop self growth through honestly and courageously examining the role of their behaviors and actions along with the impact of their choices to their current situation. MRT in Yavapai County: Started MRT in September 2005 with high risk, treatment resistant offenders. Since inception, 984 probationers have enrolled in the MRT program. Average number of days in recovery of the active participant is 309 days. During fiscal year 2010, 169 new participants were accepted into MRT. There were 80 successful completions from MRT during fiscal year Page 12

13 Severely Mentally Ill (SMI) Purpose: The purpose of the specialized mental health unit is to improve the Severely Mentally Ill (SMI) offender s opportunities for success on probation through close supervision, timely case management, education and training, advocacy, and effective collaboration with community agencies. Between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010, 50 people were served on the SMI caseload, with an average of 29 people being actively supervised on a monthly basis. Each of the active probationers were seen at least once a month in the office, and an average of 21 home visits were made each month. During this time frame, 11 individuals (22%) successfully completed probation 5 full terminations; 4 early terminations; and 2 Earned Time Credit (ETC) terminations. Six individuals (12%) were able to move to standard caseloads. Five Petitions to Revoke were filed which accounted for 10% of the population served. Three of the Petitions to Revoke were for new felony offenses, resulting in revocation to prison. Two of the petitions were for technical violations and both were reinstated to the SMI caseload. Meet Darla B. Darla was on probation for substance abuse. She suffered from PTSD, depression, schizophrenia and multiple personality disorders. She was molested as a child, did not trust people easily, would lose time for days or weeks on end and suffered night terrors. Probation was not easy for Darla. She would fall into depression, self medicate with illegal drugs, and lie about what was going on in her life. Probation worked closely with Darla and with the Verde Valley Guidance Clinic. After multiple relapses, she enrolled in and successfully completed Women s World, a long term residential facility for women with dual diagnosis problems. Darla spent six months working on the issues that had haunted her during most of her teen and adult life. After she successfully graduated from Women s World, Darla was able to live on her own for the first time in her life. She went to meetings daily, addressed her mental health issues in a positive manner, and complied with probation. Most importantly, Darla decided on a long term goal of opening up a ranch called Mustangs for Misfits. Her dream was to rescue wild, unwanted or abandoned horses. The ranch would also work with troubled teens who would learn to care and work with the horses, while working on their own issues, and gain self esteem. Darla created a business plan, obtained a business mentor, and started contacting groups for financial backing. By May 2010, Darla had remained sober and stable for two and a half years and was early terminated. She is currently residing in Colorado, doing great emotionally, and continues to work on her business plan in order to realize her dream of Mustangs for Misfits. Page 13

14 Drug Court and DUI Court Specialty Courts Work in Yavapai County! For the last 21 years, Specialty Courts have continued to grow and thrive nationally and internationally. Since the fall of 2000, Yavapai County Adult Probation has been involved in these vibrant and effective programs. The Drug and DUI Court Programs in Prescott and Cottonwood have been instrumental in keeping the communities safe, saving taxpayer money, and changing lives. We are proud of our Specialty Courts Programs. The information below demonstrates the vitality and effectiveness of Drug and DUI Courts. We are especially proud of the examples of many of our graduates, who because of their participation in Drug and DUI Court, continue to stay committed to long term change. The total number served for this period was 183. There were 66 successful graduates and 21 unsuccessfully terminated. Terminations were down, showing an increase in overall participant retention and the team s ability to work more effectively with them, leading to better outcomes. Our Drug Court recidivism rate dropped from 25% in FY08 to 21% in this fiscal year! Drug/DUI alumni groups in Prescott and the Verde have increased participation, with the Verde taking over the Victim Impact Panels, using the proceeds to fund various activities promoted by the group. In May and June, the alumni planned and conducted celebrations in both Prescott and the Verde Valley to acknowledge National Drug Court Month. These prosocial events helped to continue alumni and current participant engagement in the Specialty Courts Programs. The Verde hosted Yavapai Broadcasting for their event, leading to two spots on the tv program county wide, promoting the effectiveness of specialty courts to the community. Alumni are initiating ways to engage Phase I Drug/DUI Court participants through an individualized orientation program. The Drug Court Coordinator, through collaboration with the Coconino County Drug Court Probation Officer, was able to present at the National Association of Drug Court Professionals Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. The topic was The Power of Alumni Groups in Rural Areas. Attendance at the NADCP Conference by the Drug Court Coordinator and two alumni was funded by the Prescott Area Narcotics Task Force and the ATR grant. From the ATR Grant/CHOICES Program, 44 Drug Court clients received $103, for clinical and recovery support services. This program continues to be a valuable asset to our participants, expediting treatment and recovery support services in a timely manner. Because Yavapai County has been exemplary in its participation in the CHOICES Program, we are in line for an extension of funding for a year. To demonstrate the success of our program for long term change, Louis Gomez, Drug Court alumnus from 2003, has not only been active in our alumni group but has moved up at Ponderosa Tire to manager. He was featured in approximately 50 major trade magazines world wide promoting the Tire Pros program, including Tire Business, Modern Tire Dealer, and Tire Review (see photo). He also has been instrumental in employing people on probation. He and his wife Angela (a 2004 alumnus) are married and have a 5 year old son, William! Page 14
