Description

Specifications include, but are not limited to: Through this Request for Proposal (RFP) the Attorney General’s Office (hereinafter, AGO or the “State”) is seeking to establish contracts with one or more organizations that can provide Court Diversion and Pretrial Services. The AGO seeks consistency in the delivery of high-quality services around the State. SERVICES: 1. Court Diversion Program 3 V.S.A. §§ 163 and 164 This restorative justice program is for youth with a delinquency petition and adults charged with a crime. Prosecutors may refer individuals to the program before or after preliminary hearing/arraignment. Recognizing that people and relationships have been harmed when someone commits an offense, Diversion empowers all stakeholders to collectively address the needs of the victim, the community and the person who violated the law. Court Diversion case managers work with those referred who are willing to take responsibility for their actions and engage in a restorative process aimed at repairing the harm. Service needs related to the delinquency petition/charge are addressed in a restorative agreement. Service needs unrelated to the delinquency petition/charge are offered but not included in a restorative agreement. Completion of the Diversion Program results in a dismissal of the delinquency/ criminal charge. Current measures of success include the following: successful completion, victim restitution paid, victim satisfaction, and participant feedback on the restorative panel. 2. Youth Substance Abuse Safety Program 7 V.S.A. § 656; 18 V.S.A. § 4230b The Youth Substance Abuse Safety Program (YSASP) provides an alternative to the civil court process for youth who violate Vermont’s underage alcohol or marijuana laws. YSASP helps young people to understand the impact on themselves and others of using substances and to lower their risk of future use, while connecting those identified as using at high-risk levels to professional substance use clinicians. YSASP follows an approach known as Screening, Brief Intervention & Referral to Treatment (SBIRT). Current measures of success include successful completion. Additional measures may be developed for FY 2020. 3. Civil DLS Diversion Program Act 147 (2011, Adjourned Session) and Act 128 (2014 Session) The Civil DLS Diversion Program works to restore people’s privilege to drive by helping people to determine requirements for driver re-licensing and by providing alternative affordable means to satisfy those requirements whenever possible. Among other forms of assistance, staff file motions, including proposed reductions and payment plans, on behalf of participants with the Vermont Judicial Bureau (VJB) and collect and forward payments to the VJB. Current measures of success include the number of individuals whose driver’s license is reinstated. 4. Detainees’ Needs Screenings and Risk Assessments 13 V.S.A. § 7554c Pretrial Service Coordinators offer individuals who are lodged and held for lack of bail screening for substance use and mental health treatment needs and an assessment to measure risk of failure to appear in court and risk of re-offense using the ORAS-PAT. Risk assessments are offered only in those counties where Department of Corrections facilities are located. Needs screenings are also used with people referred to Tamarack and Pretrial Services Monitoring.
