Evaluation and Technical Assistance for the Alaska Department of Corrections

The Alaska Department of Corrections has received two major grants from the Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. The first grant, “Alaska Department of Corrections Sex Offender Risk Management Program” is a two-year demonstration grant to implement a risk management program for sex offenders being released into a hub community (Bethel) and a rural village (Hooper Bay) in Western Alaska. The goal of the project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of trained and supported community risk management teams in monitoring the behavior of released sex offenders, reducing recidivism, and enhancing community safety. The second grant, “Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative” is a three-year project designed to assist serious and violent offenders under the age of 36 to reenter their communities in productive, realistic, and sustained manners. The “Going Home “ program will use a case manager/transition team model and begin to work with offenders upon conviction to prepare for release and successful transition back to the community.

The Alaska Department of Corrections has contracted with the Alaska Comprehensive and Specialized Evaluation Services (ACSES) branch of Behavioral Health Research and Services to design an evaluation plan, carry out data analysis, and conduct periodic evaluations of the “Sex Offender Risk Management Program,” focusing upon cost and impact to the community, the offender, and the Department of Corrections. ACSES will provide technical assistance in refining goals and objectives and carrying out the evaluation for the “Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative.”
