Components to Accomplishing Goals
We intend to accomplish these goals by the implementation of the following six components.
Prevention activities allow us to get out in the public and talk about the harmful effect that alcohol and drugs have on your body. We participate in activities such as the annual county fair, health fairs, safety days, and earth day.
The Enforcement component provides local law enforcement agencies with overtime funding for saturation patrols, roadblocks, shoulder taps, and underage drinking patrols.
3) Compliance Monitoring & Tracking (CMT)
This component utilizes court compliance officers who upon adjudication of a case, conduct an intake with the client. At this intake, the case is reviewed in its entirety to ensure the client understands all court-ordered sanctions. The following referrals are given as required: DWI School, Alcohol Screen, Community Service, Victim Impact Panel (VIP), ASPEN, Ignition Interlock, Treatment, Jail Commitment, and Probation Supervision.
This portion of the CMT utilizes the state-mandated Noble Impaired Driving Assessment ( IDA) tool to track the client on all court-ordered sanctions. This program allows the trackers to open a database program and open compliance screens set compliance dates and have the ability to check on anyone who is non-compliant and take necessary action.
4) Alcohol Screening
Alcohol Screening is administered by a LISW This component allows DWI Offenders to be screened and treatment recommendations provided to the courts. If the client needs treatment; we provide listings of local facilities.
5) Alternative Sentencing
This component can be implemented with TEEN COURT. Minors with minor offenses are allowed to plead guilty and are referred to Teen Court via Juvenile Probation and Parole. They are sentenced by a jury of their peers. Upon completion of their sentence charges are cleared from their record and tickets are dismissed. This is only for teens with minor traffic and misdemeanor offenses and can only be utilized once.
6) Coordination, Planning & Evaluation
This component is the responsibility of the Program Director, Daniel Caywood. He is responsible for the day to day operations of the DWI Offender Supervision Program. He oversees budget preparation and administration, program reporting requirements, staff supervision, general planning, and administration of office and program functions. The program director oversees all funded components to ensure success and efficiency.
