In the ADJC
system, parole is part of a continuum of supervision and behavior change.
ADJC has a workforce development committee consisting of agency staff, business partners, community and state agencies that meet monthly to keep apprised of CTE programs at the schools.
Recently, ADJC worked with the Arizona Department of Education's CTE unit to initiate SkillsUSA clubs at all schools.
And the company, an ADJC partner, has requested more students be referred for employment.
Branham ensures that advice is provided by staff from all of the key ADJC areas including top, mid-level and line facility managers, and representatives from the Education, Clinical, Legal, Inspections and Investigations, and Research and Development departments.
The ADJC COMPSTAT program was initiated in June 2007 and a comparison of assault rates before and after COMPSTAT was implemented indicates a reduction in violence has occurred.
If the heart of the ADJC COMPSTAT program is the proactive and cross-disciplinary approach toward the management of violence, the soul of the program is real-time data.
ADJC has taken the COMPSTAT technique and applied it to juvenile corrections.
In March 2004, ADJC received a draft agreement from the justice department.
Also important was improving the working relationships between local prosecutors in the regional areas where ADJC facilities exist.
An added feature was the electronic routing of summaries of the investigations to ADJC leadership team members.
Additional components were added to the Investigations Unit to further promote a safe environment for ADJC youths and staff.
