Juvenile Community Corrections

by Cheryl Cadue last modified Jul 11, 2013 03:59 PM
Community Supervision Agencies operate in all 31 Judicial Districts throughout Kansas providing Juvenile Intensive Supervision Probation or Case Management for youth and their families after the youth has been adjudicated a juvenile offender and sentenced to one of these programs by the District Court.


Juvenile Community Corrections Programs

 

  • Juvenile Intensive Supervision Probation (JISP) serves youth sentenced by the court to a term of probation and provides: assess the youth's risk and needs, development of a supervision plan to address those needs, engaging the youth and family, assisting the youth and family to access community based services, monitoring the youth's adherence to court ordered probation conditions, and provides updates to the court concerning the youth's supervision
  • Case Management (CM) serves youth who are placed in the custody of the Commissioner by the District Court for out of home placement. These youth have similar risk/needs to the JISP population, while being from families found by the court to be currently incapable of addressing the issues preventing a disposition of probation. This program also serves youth directly committed by the court to a juvenile correctional facility. Services provided include: assess the risk/needs of the juvenile and the family circumstances, develop a supervision plan with the family to work towards reunification with the family as soon as it is appropriate, identify an appropriate out of home placement and coordinate with that program to address needs of the youth and family, and work with the family to address service needs of the family in the community to help the family be prepared to support the youth upon return home.
