Follow-up Report on the Inmate Intake Process Administered by the Department of Corrections, Report No. 96-64, March 1997
Full report in PDF format

  • The Department of Corrections has taken positive steps to address our recommendations. The agency implemented automation systems to improve the quantity and quality of information available to staff about individual inmates. Staff can use the information initially to determine individual inmate needs and subsequently to determine the extent to which those needs are being met. Also, although not fully implemented, the agency is developing a risk and needs assessment process to determine both inmate placement needs and Department planning needs.
