In addition to the traditional services we offer, our department has initiated a diversity of programs to further enhance the local community system including the following:
ATI (Alternatives to Incarceration)
The focus of this program is to offer pre-trial assessments of incarcerated defendants' likelihood of appearance at future court dates. These findings are reported to the courts to assist in the decisions of bail reduction or Release on Recognizance. Supervision services are available to this population when required by the court.
DAT (Designated Assessment Team)
This collaborative service is coordinated by our agency and consists of representatives from Mental Health, Social Services, Youth Bureau, Volunteer Counseling Services, Mental Health Association, Police, BOCES, parents and local schools. By developing, implementing and monitoring a comprehensive early intervention and intensive treatment plan, youth are diverted from Family Court involvement.
PINS (Person in Need of Supervision)
Services are provided to youth through age 18 through the DAT collaborative. Intensive Case Management services are offered to these youth and their families by the Department of Social Services, diverting them from Probation and/or Family Court intervention unless needed.
ISP (Intensive Supervision Program)
This specialized caseload diverts select adult offenders from State correctional facilities. Convicted felons remain in the community, where they are provided with maximum supervision and close monitoring.
SOS (Sex Offender Services)
This team is responsible for the pre-sentence investigations of those convicted of sex-related crimes. They supervise those placed on probation, assess their risk to the community, provide information to facilitate the Court's classification of offenders for the State Sex Offender Registry and develop a supervision plan to reduce risk to the community. They coordinate with other law enforcement agencies in surveillance of sex offenders residing in Rockland County. They collaborate and co-lead groups with Mental Health professionals to provide sex offender specific treatment with the goal of greater community protection.
