1 8A2 BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AGENDA ITEM SUMMARY PLACEMENT: DEPARTMENTAL PRESET: TITLE: HEAR A BRIEF UPDATE REGARDING DEPARTMENT OF JUVENILE JUSTICE COST SHARING AGENDA ITEM DATES: MEETING DATE: 7/29/2014 COMPLETED DATE: 7/17/2014 COUNTY ATTORNEY: 7/7/2014 ASSISTANT COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR: 7/14/2014 REQUESTED BY: DEPARTMENT: PREPARED BY: Name: Department of Administration Name: Procedures: None EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Department of Administration Kate Parmelee Intergovernmental & Grants Coordinator Since 2004, Martin County and Florida s non-fiscally constrained counties have been in a cost-share relationship with the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) to fund secure detention (Sec F.S.). Martin County recently joined the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) in a Petition for Rule Challenge to the Department of Juvenile Justice s proposed new rules which will dictate the method and amount counties will pay for detention care. Staff will provide an update on the proposed rules and fiscal impact as well as provide additional background on juvenile justice in Martin County, in order to receive policy direction. APPROVAL: ADM LEG 8061a901 1 of 34

2 CA BACKGROUND/RELATED STRATEGIC GOAL: Since 2004, Martin County and Florida s non-fiscally constrained counties have been in a cost-share relationship with the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) to fund secure detention. (Section , Florida Statutues). Despite this cost-sharing relationship, counties have no input on how secure detention costs are administered. Thus, counties role in juvenile detention at this time is strictly financial. Juveniles in secure detention are housed at the St. Lucie Regional Detention Center in Fort Pierce. This cost-sharing relationship is illustrated in Exhibit A. In the beginning, the breakdown was relatively simple: counties paid for secure detention days prior to a juvenile s final court disposition and the state paid for days after their case was resolved. However in 2008, despite no change in statute and contrary to the plain language of the law, DJJ significantly changed the way it billed counties for secure detention. To protect the interests of their taxpayers, several counties filed administrative actions against DJJ contesting the validity of DJJ s rules and its interpretation of the statute. In June 2013, the First District Court of Appeal in DJJ v. Okaloosa, et al. (Case No. 1D ) agreed with the counties and affirmed a Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH) Final Order in Okaloosa, et al. v. DJJ (Case No RX) that held DJJ s interpretation of the law was arbitrary and erroneous, and that DJJ had, for years, improperly shifted financial responsibility for detention days to the counties. While counties were paying approximately 75% of secure detention under DJJ s invalid rules, DJJ interpreted the court s ruling to reflect a revised cost share of approximately only 32% for counties. In revising prior years reconciliations to comply with the court s ruling, DJJ s own data indicates that counties over-paid by at least $200 million from FY08-09 through FY It is estimated that Martin County overpaid by $879,477. During the 2014 Legislative Session, Martin County joined FAC s efforts to pass beneficial legislation to fix the fundamentally flawed cost-share system and to end the cycle of litigation. Although HB5305 and SB 1532 put forth a solution, the legislation failed to pass. Therefore DJJ began a process of promulgating new rules that will dictate the method and ultimately the amount counties will pay for detention care. The Proposed Rule Hearing was held on June 6, Based on the draft proposed rules, it appears that DJJ is receding from its original interpretation of the court s ruling and plans to begin billing counties for about 57% of the costs of detention. FAC and Martin County have contended the Proposed Rules do not comply with Section , Florida Statutes, the decision issued in the Rule Challenge, or the Department's prior interpretation of the same. As a result, Martin County joined FAC and other counties in filing a Petition for Rule Challenge, which has been provided in the backup for this item as Exhibit B. The 25 counties challenging the rule are Alachua, Bay, Brevard, Broward, Charlotte, Collier, Escambia, Flagler, Hernando, Hillsborough, Lake, Lee, Leon, Manatee, Martin, Nassau, Okaloosa, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Santa Rosa, St. Johns, St. Lucie, Sarasota, Volusia and Walton. The dispute affects 38 of Florida's 67 counties. The remaining 29 counties are considered "fiscally constrained" and are not part of the cost-sharing formula. 8061a901 2 of 34

3 The Petition for Rule Challenge case has been held in abeyance with a status report due from the parties no later than September 5, The basis of the abeyance is that DJJ plans to re-write or change the proposed rules. Martin County has also joined other counties in a Petition for Formal Administrative Hearing, challenging DJJ s calculation of counties share as out of compliance with Florida Statutes. ISSUES: Billing and Reconciliation Fiscal Impact An analysis of the estimated impact of the DJJ Rulemaking Process for Martin County for illustration purposes has been included in the item as Exhibit C. If DJJ's FY14-15 estimates are accurate, the current proposed rule will require an increase in expenditures of approximately $81, or a % increase in pre-disposition costs when compared to the original court interpretation as applied in FY DJJ sent Martin County a bill on June 23, 2014 for the estimated costs of detention for July 2014 in the amount of $20, With DJJ s proposed rules, which are being challenged, the County is charged with 57% responsibility. It is important to note while DJJ has historically repaid the difference between the estimated cost and the actual costs, this will no longer be happening. At issue is what portion of the July 2014 bill, and future bills pending the outcome of the appeal, the County should pay to the State, knowing that it will likely never see any repayment. As an alternative to payment of the billed amount, three options are proposed for consideration: 1. The County pays 32% of the bill. The bill was for $20,388.88, which is 57% of the total bill of $35, With DJJ s proposed rules the County is charged with 57% responsibility. What the County should be paying under Okaloosa is 32%, which would be $11,446.38, with the remainder deposited into escrow. 2. The County pays based on our own actual cost figures, which allocates all violation of probation cases to the State, regardless of the reason for the violation, as those would be considered post-disposition. The numbers are as follows: Number of Pre-Disposition Days: In FY 2011/2012: 1,122 pre-disposition days, In FY 2012/2013: 522 pre-disposition days, In FY 2013/2014: 499 pre-disposition days. This accounts for a total of 2,143 days for those 3 years and an average of pre-disposition days per year. Actual Cost per Pre-Disposition Day: In FY 2011/2012: $360.95, In FY 2012/2013: $253.32, In FY 2013/2014: $ a901 3 of 34

4 Based on this information, an average cost per pre-disposition day is $ Therefore, a more real actual cost per month would be ($ x $313.47) / 12 = $18, That amount could be paid and the remainder of the $20, deposited in escrow. 3. The numbers from FY 2011/12, 12/13 and 13/14 show that each year there is a reduction in arrests and detention. It is also a possibility that the number of pre-disposition days will continue to decrease in the future based on the outcome of this agenda item and an increased use of local options. With this in mind, using the number of pre-disposition beds from 2013/2014 would be an even more accurate actual cost. If we were to use the number of pre-disposition days associated with FY 2013/2014 of 499, and DJJ s estimated cost per pre-disposition day for 2014/2015 of $328.94, the calculation would be as follows: (499 x $328.94) / 12 = $13, That amount could be paid and the remainder of the $20, deposited in escrow. For informational purposes, DJJ estimates our 2014/2015 pre-disposition days at 744, which is very high considering utilization from the past two years. Juvenile Justice in Martin County While the County s role has traditionally been financial, Staff advises it may be helpful to explore how the juvenile detention system works in Martin County in order to decrease pre-disposition days and therefore decrease overall costs. County Staff does not wish to dictate punishment or sentencing to Judges, but rather wishes to provide more local options for the Judges to choose from when looking at a child who scores secure detention or a child who is non-compliant with drug court. In addition, increased use of the civil citation program could reduce Martin County s cost over the long run. Judges are left with several options when a youth violates the law. One, releasing the child to their family outright. In this situation there cannot be conditions put on the release. Two, releasing the child to the family on Home Detention for 21 days. In this situation, conditions can be placed on the Home Detention. Three, securely detaining the child for up to 21 days, and when appropriate, up to 30 days. For the most part, in order to be securely detained, a child must score the requisite points. However, even when a child does score for secure detention, a Judge can release the child if he so chooses and feels it is appropriate for the child. In this situation, a Judge can order, as part of Home Detention, that the child complete certain tasks within that 21 day time period. Some counties have been experimenting with alternatives to secure detention by giving Judges various options. County Staff wishes to explore local available alternatives that would both rehabilitate and deter future conduct. It is proven that recidivism is reduced when children receive some alternative to secure detention. Detaining non-violent youth leads to unnecessary costs and damages the adolescent s chances of exiting the criminal justice system, especially since most youth age out of crime. It has been recommended that secure detention should only be reserved for violent and dangerous offenders. Thus, the Florida Association of Counties has advocated Florida should focus efforts to detain the right youth, like habitual violent offenders, and focus on less expensive community alternatives for the remainder of the youth who would qualify for detention. During the 2011 session, the Legislature gave the Department and local communities an additional resource, civil citation. Civil Citation is for first time misdemeanor offenders and its intent is to prevent these children from having a criminal record, as well as contact with the system. While the children who qualify for civil citation typically will not qualify for secure detention, it is important to utilize civil citation 8061a901 4 of 34

5 in order to keep these children out of the system. Statistics show that contact with the system creates a high probability of future contact with the system. Future contact with the system will inevitably lead to a high possibility of secure detention. Martin County has its own civil citation program, which provides an alternative to detention and could help reduce recidivism. According to data from the Department of Juvenile Justice, the Martin County Sherriff s Office is currently only able to reach a small percentage of juveniles who potentially qualify for Civil Citation. These children who qualify for the civil citation program only have access to this program if the arresting officer choosing to utilize the civil citation process rather than arresting. County Staff has provided training to road patrol deputies and has encouraged utilization of the program. In addition, it may be helpful for the BOCC to explore alternatives to secure detention in relation to drug court cases. For example, from July 2012 through June 2013, Martin County was billed for 937 days at the St Lucie Regional Detention Center. Of those 937 days, 288 or 31% were days utilized as sanction days for individuals in Juvenile Drug Court who were non-compliant with program requirements. While the County was billed for 937 days, only 522 of those days were pre-disposition days. All drug court sanction days would be considered pre-disposition days. With that in mind, the number of drug court days accounts for over 50% of the pre-disposition days. From a clinical perspective, after the initial negative impact of being placed in the detention setting, additional placements lose effect in creating a positive change in behavior. Alternatives to additional placements need to be considered. One option would be to reinvest funds used for detention for sanctions individually tailored for the juvenile s specific needs. Since youth who experience detention are more likely to end up in county jails and prisons as adults, local alternatives to secure detention for Martin County youth can help improve delivery of justice to youthful offenders, improve public safety and save tax dollars. Staff requests direction on options the BOCC is interested in exploring and authority to engage with applicable partners, such as the Circuit 19 Juvenile Justice Advisory Board, which provides advice and direction to the Department in the development and implementation of juvenile justice programs and to work collaboratively with the Department in seeking program improvements and policy changes to address the emerging and changing needs of Florida's youth who are at risk of delinquency. RECOMMENDED ACTION: RECOMMENDATION 1. Move to pay the July amount of $20, as billed by DJJ. 2. Move to further identify and encourage utilization of alternatives to juvenile secure detention and contact applicable partners to bring programs back for consideration by the BOCC. ALTERNATIVE RECOMMENDATIONS 1. Move to pay Option 1 ($11,446.38) and deposit the remaining into escrow. 2. Move to pay Option 2 ($18,659.30) and deposit the remaining into escrow. 3. Move to pay Option 3 ($13,678.42) and deposit the remaining into escrow. 4. Move to not authorize the review of alternatives to juvenile secure detention programs at this time. 8061a901 5 of 34

29 Rulemaking Authority , (11) (10) FS. Law Implemented FS. History New , Amended. 63G Calculating Estimated Funding. (1) Estimates for each county s individual portion of detention funding will be calculated as follows: (a) The department shall estimate the number of service days for the upcoming fiscal year based upon prior use of secure detention and generally accepted statistical methods. Utilizing previous fiscal year data, the department shall estimate: All youth served in secure detention during the most recently reconciled previous fiscal year as reflected in the JJIS will be identified; the actual costs, using the current year expenditures projected through the end of the fiscal year, adjusted for any new legislative appropriations; 2. the number of predisposition service days for each county; and 23. the total number of service days for secure detention, including both predisposition and postdisposition service days. (b) The estimated actual costs total budget for detention, as authorized in the General Appropriations Act, shall be divided by the total number of service days estimate, which will produce an estimated per diem. The total number of pre-commitment service days in secure detention is computed by including all days up to but not including the date of commitment to the department. (c) The department shall multiply the estimated per diem by the expected number of predisposition service days for each county to calculate each county s estimated share of the [Changes from Published Rule Text (June 6) appear in red.] 29 of 34

30 detention costs total budget. (2) The total number of pre-commitment service days for each county from the most recently reconciled previous fiscal year utilization data will be divided by the total pre-commitment service days for all counties for that same time period to arrive at each county s percentage of the total. (3) Each county s percentage will be multiplied by the total estimated annual appropriation in the shared county/state juvenile detention trust fund for the upcoming fiscal year to determine each county s share of the total budget. (2)(4) The estimated share of the total budget will be billed to the counties in monthly installments. (3)(5) Invoices are to be mailed at the beginning of the month prior to the service period, so that an invoice for the August service period will be mailed in July. Rulemaking Authority , (11) (10) FS. Law Implemented (3) FS. History New , Amended. 63G Monthly Reporting. (1) Each month, the department shall generate a web based on-line utilization report that provides each county s actual usage for the previous service month.

The department s response, provided on-line, constitutes notice of final action. All pending disputes will be resolved by the department no later than 60 days after the end of the reconciliation period. (4) In October of each year, the department will perform an annual reconciliation of utilization and costs for the prior fiscal year to calculate the difference between the estimated costs and the actual costs of each county for its share of detention care. The department shall provide: Based on a county s actual utilization, a recalculation of that county s share of the shared county/state juvenile detention trust fund expenditures will be performed. (a) The actual acutal cost to operate detention care based on actual expenditures, detailing expenditures by appropriation category and by detention center.

33 (c) The total number of all service days for secure detention, including both predisposition and postdisposition service days. (5) In November of each year, the department will provide each county an annual reconcilation statement for the previous fiscal year. The calculation shall be performed as follows: The statement shall reflect the difference between the amount paid by the county based on the estimated utilization and the actual utilization reconciled in subsection (4) above. (a) The actual costs total expenditures shall be divided by the total number of service days, which will produce an actual per diem. (b) The actual per diem will be applied to each county s actual predisposition service days to calculate each county s actual costs. (c) The reconciliation shall reflect the difference between the estimated costs paid by the county during the fiscal year and the county s actual costs. The statement shall reflect the difference between the amount paid by the county based on the estimated utilization and the actual utilization reconciled in subsection (4) above. (6) If the total amount paid by a county falls short of the amount owed based on actual utilization, the county will be invoiced for that additional amount. The amount due will be applied to the county s account. An invoice will accompany the reconciliation statement, and shall be payable on or before March 1. If the amount paid by a county exceeds the amount owed based on actual utilization, the county will receive a credit. The credit will be applied to the county s account and be included on the invoice sent in November. (7) For the purpose of determining the actual utilization and actual per diem, the department is responsible for paying for the cost of detention for all service days for youth that reside out of [Changes from Published Rule Text (June 6) appear in red.] 33 of 34
