Juvenile Justice Operations Management Software

Juvenile Justice Software
Every month, new county and state probation agencies are selecting Assessments.com as the software from which to manage their day-to-day activities. Juvenile justice departments find the features and benefits of Assessments.com juvenile justice software to be perfect for their juvenile intake, juvenile risk and needs assessment, and juvenile case management functions. What are these features that make Assessments.com such a cost effective juvenile justice software solution?

Features and Benefits for Juvenile Justice and Probation Departments:

Put all of Your Paper Forms into the Software
Nearly every Adult Probation or Juvenile Justice operation has specialized Court Order forms, Intake forms, or Background forms that are part of the daily workflow. Assessment.com’s powerful web software allows us to quickly digitize and include your forms. You may have employment forms, questionnaires, property statements, court orders, case plans, and so forth. In every case the data is stored in a database, able to be used in ad hoc reports that combine information from across various forms and assessments.

Designed for today’s Juvenile Justice Issues
County probation and juvenile departments are demanding a better way to run their operations. Recent budget cuts require workers to do more with less, and programs are being scrutinized for efficacy at all levels. Assessments.com is the perfect tool for these tasks, leading the market in outcome reporting desktop software for probation agencies with a fresh new web-architected design that integrates familiar tasks with industry standard assessments and powerful outcome reports.

Providers and Vendor Accountability Software
Assessments.com allows providers to be set up and integrated with the Action Plan goal setting portion of the software. Provider success is measured and charted as part of a summary report section that allows administrators to review provider effectiveness.

Motivational Interviewing Training
Because Assessments.com is directly involved with helping county probation departments use assessments as part of daily procedures, motivational interviewing training has become a requested service of the company. Assessments.com offers motivational interviewing training for adult and juvenile probation and parole departments.

Court Software Integration
Assessments.com software is often installed on a server within a county court IT infrastructure. Many features of Assessments.com can be used to track court activity. In addition, data can be shared with other resident computers software solutions already in place.

Juvenile Demographic Reporting
Disproportionality within many communities is an issue of concern. A program to reduce or eliminate disproportionality can be driven from the features of Assessments.com. Combining the Back on Track! Risk and Needs instrument along with the demographic and statistical reporting capabilities of Assessments.com, adjudication decisions can be monitored and tracked for evaluation.

Juvenile Truancy Software
Assessments.com easily handles the specialized requirements of juvenile truancy programs. Juvenile truancy software systems usually need to accommodate a higher volume of case files through rosters or log files. The roster software should allow quick customization and simplified data entry for end-of-the-day entries by the officer. Assessments.com software has all of these features, plus statistical, aggregate, and demographic reporting to analyze data. Files can be easily transferred to juvenile justice departments using the software if necessary. Often the features of the truancy software are associated with CHINS and FINS programs (children and/or family in need of services) or other informal programs.

Jail Roster Software / Juvenile Detention Software
Within county and state agencies, jail and juvenile detention facilities often work hand-in-hand with probation departments and sheriff’s offices. Coordinating files between these groups can be a challenge. Assessments.com has a complete jail roster software module that is designed to put all of this information online, and allow selected information to be shared between agencies. The Jail Roster log is used at the detention facility to track sign-in and sign-out information. Later, if the offender is put under care, key information is already in the system.

Choice of Validated Assessment Instruments
At the heart of many juvenile outcome measurement and program efficacy tools is a scientifically validated risk and needs assessment. Only with a third party (the assessment) tool can a before-and-after snapshot “prove” that a juvenile was helped while under the department’s care. Equally critical is calculating the risk of re-offending (recidivism) once released back into society. Risk of recidivism is one useful measure that many of these assessments attempt to predict.

There are several juvenile assessments being used in the U.S. marketplace to help accomplish these goals, the most popular being the POSIT and Back on Track! (also known as the YASI). There are many other assessment used in day-to-day juvenile practice, usually focusing in on a specific area. For example, the MAYSI-2 is a quick screen for mental health, and the ASI (Addition Severity Index) is a substance abuse interview. Assessments.com users select from our library of such assessments. Assessments.com users can have their custom forms questionnaires, and surveys integrated into the software at a nominal charge. The software can either be run from our hosted site, or installed and run internally on a server. Data is always pre-populated and shared, eliminating double entry of data in the event multiple forms and assessments are used. Often, complicated compliance forms such as state mandated case plans, are integrated into a particular user’s configuration.

Handy day-to-day Features Simplify Workloads of Probation Officers and Juvenile Case Workers.
Probation officers and caseworkers need software to simplify and organize their daily activities. Assessments.com has many features to help in this area. Our Action Plan section allows goal setting linked to assessment results and provider performance. Provider goals can be established and measured, delivering true outcome reporting. Reminders, to-do lists, case notes, and photo records are just a few of the features that are available.

Offender Re-Entry
Many states are developing programs to allow offender re-entry into society ahead of scheduled release. With budget cuts and improved assessment and other efficacy measurement tools, these programs can reduce correctional system costs and overhead while hopefully not increasing the risk to the community. Whether juvenile or adult parole, re-entry programs are key in reducing recidivism. Assessments.com’s intake-assessment-case plan process is ideally suited for correctional and parole re-entry partnerships that are a part of the program. Information tracking clients can be shared between agencies and providers, while keeping secure agency specific information confidential. Further, the web architecture accommodates multiple sites and users, perfect for re-entry programs between corrections and parole.
