Sentinel Offender Services continues to monitor and respond to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak for our customers. We have implemented several contingency measures to minimize disruption of service to customers and participants.  An important topic to begin addressing immediately is PREEMPTIVE RELEASE; Here is the direction from one of the websites we monitor:

In advance of the possibility of an increase in jail population, consider the efficacy of reducing your inmate population now. Work with your judiciary and prosecutors to mitigate existing sentences and/or obtain approval for the release of certain categories of inmates, such as civil infractions (child support, contempt of court, failure to pay fines, etc.), misdemeanants, probation violators and, possibly, non-violent felony offenders. This is not a “get out of jail free card,” but rather a proactive means of reducing your current population in preparation for what may come.

 

Sentinel can help prepare for PREEMPTIVE RELEASES. We have several tools that support community corrections for the tracking and reporting of offenders in the community.  Send an email to Sales@SentinelAdvantage.com. or request information  here
