Monitor Juvenile Justice provides agencies with an automated system to meet their investigation, supervision, assessment, financial management, and reporting needs. In addition to the functionality found in Monitor Probation & Parole, our Juvenile Justice case management system includes Monitor Institutions functionality to manage juvenile detention centers and can incorporate Monitor Prosecutor functionality to manage the investigation and referral process by the Prosecutor’s office.
Some of the major components of Monitor Juvenile Justice are:
Monitor greatly improves the investigation process by automatically tracking the number, type, and status of all pending investigations and reports. All agency investigations and reports are tracked, including Presentence (PSI), predisposition, diversion, pretrial, mental health, and any other type of report generated by an agency. The Monitor on-line interview process includes sections on personal and demographic information, residence, employment, family contact, school records, criminal history, current cases and charges, references, special needs, and criminal history. Specific screens are available to collect juvenile information on such areas as school, gang affiliation, personal interests, and family relationships.
Monitor provides a complete electronic case file system for case managers who need to Monitor clients released under supervision. All supervision case management functions are provided in Monitor including recording and monitoring court ordered conditions, assessments, case plans, social service agency referrals, drug testing, violations, warrants, financial obligations, appointments, and a journal to record notes and activities. Monitor also maintains case and charge disposition records. As part of the Supervision functionality officers are provided tools that allow them to efficiently and effectively manage their caseloads including alerts, ticklers, calendars and performance indicators.
In addition to client needs and program eligibility screening tools, Monitor supports classification and risk/needs assessment to determine appropriate supervision placement and services. The assessments are configurable allowing criteria to be evaluated for predictive ability and adjusted over time as necessary allowing on-going improvement in program performance. There is no limit to the number or format of assessments that can be conducted and several assessments are included with Monitor. In addition, Loryx can provide integrations to third party assessments such as the YSL/CMI.
Monitor includes a module that allows tracking of client referrals to government and social service agencies and community-based organizations, including treatment providers, schools, mental health centers, and employment agencies. Monitor also includes the ability of these referral agencies to directly input status reports and other information (e.g. clinical assessments, drug tests) into Monitor and allows department staff instant access to the data in real-time. The result: case managers remain informed allowing corrective action to be taken when necessary.
Probation departments are often required to collect fines, fees, and restitution payments from offenders. Monitor facilitates this collection by including a GAAP compliant finance module. Jurisdictions can record any type of financial requirement ordered by the court or department, as well as client payments. Multiple cases can have multiple obligations. Monitor can generate receipts, keep a running balance, and issue checks. For jurisdictions with a separate financial system Loryx Systems can provide an interface to allow posting of a person’s balance and recently posted payments directly in Monitor.
Monitor Juvenile Justice includes the ability to manage juvenile facilities including detention and residential treatment centers. From booking to release, Monitor tracks all aspects of a juvenile’s detention including property, housing, movements, transportation, bed checks, visitation, incidents, grievances, sentencing credits and time forfeitures. In addition, Monitor supports the management of alternative to detention programs such as electronic Monitoring as well as multiple types of special classes or programs.
The Hennepin County Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation (DOCCR) provides community based, detention, and in-custody offender programs for adult and juvenile offenders.
"This letter is to express my sincere gratitude for the tremendous effort you and your staff put forth to make the implementation of Monitor in Hennepin County’s Juvenile Services divisions a success. Your staff did everything they could, including working nights and weekends, to meet our demanding functionality requirements. We are very appreciative. Since the implementation of Monitor in our County I have heard resounding reports from staff and managers in our juvenile services area that the software is easy to use and is very helpful in supporting the important jobs our staff perform. Monitor goes a long way in improving the delivery of probation supervision and juvenile detention services and considerably helps improve our staff’s ability to make informed decisions that affect public safety and rehabilitation of offenders."
