Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

The Probation Department's service delivery model is built on an evidence-based practices framework, which has been proven through the scientific study of operant conditioning and social learning as an effective tool to influence behavior change in an offender population.  Training offered through Core Correctional Solutions, LLC focuses on the implementation of two proven evidence based programs, specifically Integrated Behavior Intervention Strategies (IBIS), and Motivational Interviewing (MI) which together are proven statistically to enhance an officer’s ability to effectively communicate and influence behavior change in the client population we serve.  These strategies, when employed with fidelity, are proven to positively impact recidivism in the offender population, thereby reducing victimization in the community.

 

For the past two years the Probation Department, through Core Correctional Solutions, has been providing IBIS training to all correctional staff. The training provided by Core Correctional Solutions, LLC supports the Probation Department in our mission to provide public safety through collaborative partnerships and innovative practices in corrections with accountability and compassion.


The department has recognized a need to revise the compensation for services in order to incorporate a revised Exhibit A that will clarify the distinction between the anticipated number of days for each training cohort and the pricing per unit. The changes enclosed herein are non-financial and have no impact on the 'Not to Exceed' clause of the agreement, which remains at $200,000 for the period of September 22, 2015 through September 21, 2018.
