Time: 1:00PM to 2:30 PM on Wednesday, November 7
Place: Picard
Session Chair: Rachel Porter, The Vera Institute of Justice
The Vera Institute of Justice has conducted research on treatment alternatives for felony offenders in New York for over a decade. The panel will include process and outcome findngs on specific alternatives (Drug Treatment Alternatives to Prison (DTAP); the Willard drug treatment program (a boot camp model); and, New York City alternative to incarceration programs (day treatment). The panelists will discuss the relationship between these programs, and other intermediate sanctions such as drug courts, and the use of these programs by judges and attorneys. Broader issues in alternative sanctions, such as linking coerced treatment, diversion from incarceration, defendant monitoring and coordinating sentencing options will also be addressed.
