Collaborative comprehensive case plans

Collaborative comprehensive case plans are notedly responsive to factors that are most likely to reduce a person’s involvement in the criminal justice system, such as criminogenic risk, as well as their medical, psychiatric, and social needs. People who are high risk and high need will need the most intensive treatment and supervision responses, which will require the most significant degree of collaboration.

Franklin County, MA Franklin County Sheriff's Office

  • The agency that serves as the lead case planner is the sheriff's office, which provides comprehensive, wraparound clinical reentry services to participants during incarceration and after release.
  • FCSO has designed their approach to encourage successful reentry through the creation of a reentry plan, reentry case-planning and transition meetings, and post-release case work.
  • The comprehensive reentry plan includes securing identification documents, care coordination, activating insurance, providing access to prescriptions and medications, and scheduling appointments for primary care, outpatient therapy, and medication-assisted treatment.
  • Reentry plans are designed by reentry planners and correctional case workers who ensure that reentry tasks are completed in the jail, and that there is a warm hand-off upon release to reentry case workers (see "specialized jail personnel" intervention).
