Information Technology Development Management

The technology innovations addressed in this agency strategic plan are listed by each of the two major issues. The specific goal/objective they relate to is designated at the end in parenthesis. Also, of these initiatives, those that affect more than one agency, have outcomes impacting another agency, or exceed $500,000 in total cost over one year are identified.

ISSUE 1: Enhance Public Safety By Effectively Incarcerating Inmates And Supervising Offenders In The Community.

Developing Technology

  • The computerized security staff utilization system also called roster management program. (1-1.1D)
  • Offender/inmate check-in/out system at community control centers. (1-1.1E)
  • A system to monitor movement and location of inmates throughout the prison compound. (1-1.1F)
  • The Inmate Disruption Index quantifies/predicts the identification of potential disruptive inmates. (1-1.3D)
  • The Automated Classification Management & Evaluation System (ACMES) is an integrated system that automates all core inmate classification processes. (1-1.1D & 1-1.3C)
    • Four ACMES's systems are completed: Risk and Needs System; Integrated Assessment and Placement System (IAPS); Automated Discipline and Integrated Offender System (ADIOS); Classification Contact Log (including critical case management log).
    • Nine of ACMES's systems are developing systems:
      • Custody Assessment and Reclassification System (CARS) enhances objectivity of the custody determination system.
