\ ACQUISITiONS ~ ?

The Connecticut Justice Commission has rtow .. .£It.s.tributed more than $100 million under the federal Law Enforcement AssiStance Administration and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Programs established with these funds have enabled the State of Connecticut to accomplish major changes in every facet of its criminal justice system. The Commission is proud of these 12 years I

jmprovemen~ in law enforcement, adjudication, correction and prevention of crime ,rand delinquency.

This year marked a year of transition for the Commission. For the first time in the 12 year historY of the program there were no new federal financial commitments to the 1 aw enforcement assi stance program. The Commi ssi on worked with previously allocated funds and with ;'venile justice funds only. Despite this, we were able to continue all essential projects to a point where state or local funding might become available to them. Whether the decrease in federal support will be . t~mporary or permanent is uncertain at this time.

As governmental resources for 'criminal justice have become scarcer, the need for, and the role of, the Connecticut Justice Commission in system planning in the face of scarce resources has expanded. The Commission has developed an expanded,' issue-oriented planning capability. High-priority oblems affecting the criminal justi ce system are analyzed and sol utions are developed through this process. The . results are presented to the Governor, the State Legislature, criminal justice agencies, the State Office of Policy and Management and others as appropriate. This process enables these 'decision-makers to concentrate scarce resources on particular problem areas. Some of the problems the Commission has worked on this past year are outlined in the last section of thi~ report.

In the coming year, the commission will continue in its dual role as planning and funding body. Regardless of the amount of new resources we have avai 1 abl e, I am certain that we can continue our record of thoughtful deci sion-making and justi ce system improvement. I look forward to the Commission1s involvement in that process.

THE CONHECTICUT JUSTICE Cor'ltHSS,ION

The Omnibus Crime r.ontrol and Safe Streets Act of 1968 (and subsequent I'~enactments) established a novel program of federal grants to support state and local law enforcement and criminal justice projects. A distinguishing feature of this program is the allocation of a single block grant to each of the states.

To be eligible to receive these funds, a state is requireckto have a criminal justice planning agency which can plan for, allocate, award, and administer these dollars. .The Connecticut Justice Commission was created by the Governor in 1968 (under the title Connecticut Planning Committee on Criminal Administration) as this agency. It is one of 56 state and territo­rial criminal justice planning agencies which operate in conjunction with the federal Law Enforcement Assistance Administration.

Each year, after research into the state's criminal justice needs and problems, the CJC produces a state plan for Connecticut. It apportions the state's annual LEAA block grant to program areas in the adult and. juvenile justice systems--police, courts, corrections; and system improvements like human resources development and information systems. Within these areas, the annual plan designates the sorts of projects that will be supported, the funding contemplpted, and the eligible applicants. After the plan is approved by LEAA; CJC accepts applications for grants and makes awards. It administers the grant funds and, ultimately, audits and evaluates a percentage of the projects. . .~

The Justice Commission, the final decision-making body in this process, is appointed by the Governor and leaders of the State Legislature. Its b/enty­one members include. as required by law, representatives of major law enforce­ment and justice agencies, juvenile justice agencies, representatlves of state and local government and related organizations, and concerned citizens. The Commission is supported, day-to-day, by a professional and clerical staff under an Executive Director who is also appointed by the Governor.

The CJC is assisted in its planning and administrative responsibilities by five regional planning offices which are supported with forty percent of the state's federal "planning grant. 1I The regional offices are the usual point-of-contact for local applicants and grantees. Regional supervisory boards advise and oversee CJe's regional planning offices. Advisory com­mittees in specific program areas similarly assist the CJCts staff planners .

. The CJC funds programs under LEAA's "seed money" concept. This means CJC p."ovides money to get new, innovative law enforcement and criminal justice projects off the ground and to help support improvements so major that they would probably not be attempted without this federal aid. Ordi­narily CJC funding for a project is limited to three years, after which state or local government or some alternative source of support must pick up the program.

The CJC also encourages eligible applicants in the State to apply for LEAA I s direct IIdi screti onaryll grants, assi sts them in development appl ica­tions, and administers these grants.

JUSTICE SYSTEM PLANNING

The Justice Commission was established by state statute (P.A. 76-432) in the 1976 Legislative session. Its statutory mandate included not only the Justice Systems Improvement Programs, but also the definition of problem areas, establishment of goals, priorities and standards for justice system improvement and advice to the Governor and General Assembly on legislation and other significant matters. During 1980, the attention paid to these priorities was increased significantly.

While programs and funding are often successful in solving justice system problems, more complex, interagency problems must be thoroughly examined from a variety of perspectives before an effective, cost effective approach can be designed. This approach looks toward longer range planning for meeting the entire problem, rather than addressing'its fragmented parts. A number of high priority areas were addressed in 1980. These include:

1. An examination of the problem, arson, which resulted in the creation of the Governor's Arson Task Force. This task force

2.

3.

has overseen the deve16pment of a million dollar arson prevention, detection, and prosecution program and has also introduced significant legislative changes in the arson area.

An examination of Connecticut's criminal sentencing practices and procedures, as staff to a legislatively-created Sentencing Commission. The Commission examined the sentencing practices currently in effect in Connecticut in order to develop a more equitable and understandable system of sentencing. Significant legislation in the sentencing area was introduced as a result.

A study of existing practices and services in the Pretrial Detainee area, in conjunction with the Legislature's pretrial commission. As a result of/this study, the Commission has proposed expanded initiatives designed to improve the handling of pretrial detainees and has spawned a pilot project to test these initiatives.

4. An analysis of the state's crime laboratory service system, utilizing ~, a justice commission-created forensic services committee. The , I ,

/! . u..,J ___ ....;;. __ -.;.. ________________ ~ ________________ ~__.a..l."I0_ ___ _____''_______'' .... "'--. -'-'.l _._. _____ •.•

committee recommended a number of changes in th~ forensic science service system. Chief among these was a recommendation to improve coordination between users of forensic science services and theo laboratories doing analysis.

5. A study of the problem of serious juvenile crime and the state's responses to that problem, in conjunction with a Serious Juvenile Offender Task Force. The Task Force examined the nature and extent of serious juvenile crime and as a result, recommended changes in the practices of the courts in relation to both juveni'le matters' and the transfer of certain juveniles to the adult session.

6. Development, at the request of the General Assembly, of an operational plan for implementing the Families With Service Needs program. An implementation group was charged and staffed by the Justice Commission in order to determine the types of policies and services necessary to implement a non-criminal response to runaways, truants, and other status offenders. This resulted in the development of necessary programs and certain critical amendments to the Families With Service Needs legislation.

While the above does not represent a complete listing of all the critical issues that have been identified and studied during the past year, it gives a good idea of the type of interagency planning the Justice Commission is involved with. We are constantly in the process of examining suggested issues and problem areas.

In support of this type activity, the Justice Commission has moved to improve its cooperative relationship with other agencies in the criminal justice system. One method for accomplishing this objective is the use of task forces for review and development of recommendations. A result of this cooperation, beyond the development of well balanced recommendations, is that the data bases available to the Justice Commission for identification and study of system problems have been expanded greatly.

In addition, during the past year, the Justice Commission has worked with staff of the Office of Policy and Management, its administrative agency, in order to claY'ify and expand the relationship between plans developed by the Justice Commission and budget and program implementation at the state level. As the resources fo\" cr'iminal justice programming have become more scarce, particularly for program innovations, this coordination between planning and budgeting processes should produce key results.
