About the Program

CATEGORY: Criminal Justice and Public Safety (Best in Category)
YEAR: 2022
The program, UPTrust, was developed to increase the success of the agency's target population, that being juvenile and adult high risk, high need, substance addicted and mentally ill, offenders; sentenced to supervision with the 28th Judicial District Community Corrections. Instant notification/contact with all clients and their families assists clients in their efforts to attend all court ordered hearings, treatment, services, supervision needs, and more. Supervision staff is further utilizing this program to send daily encouragements, positive outlooks, and more to provide support to those most in need and often overlooked and underserved. Instant text and email notifications are sent from the supervision staff to the client population on a daily, sometimes, twice, or more daily, to assist the client and their families to attend all required court and services while offering resources, funding, wellness, and more to increase successful completions. Outcomes have shown positive change and result in clients meeting all court hearings and more; avoiding arrest and warrants issued resulting in lock downs in an overcrowded, understaffed jail. The Information Technology program has extended at the expense of Community Corrections, to the Public Defenders and Court Services agencies; again, showing excellent outcomes toward reducing failures to appear.
