Creating a Community Justice and Mental Health System with Risk Reduction Services

Project Term: 24 months; Ended 2019
Grant Amount: $97,350

Lewis and Clark County created the Criminal Justice Services Department to reduce community risks with justice-involved individuals. This department will coordinate among local partners who interface with the justice system. As part of this project, the county also implemented a universal health screening system for people booked in the detention center. The county is committed to sustaining the new department, and they invested $100,000 over the next three years to ensure the implementation of a criminal justice data warehouse. Once they establish the data warehouse, the county anticipates having the appropriate systems in place to track recidivism and outcomes among the justice-involved population.
