Cooperative Agreement: Dosage Probation White Paper

The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is seeking applications for funding under the Fiscal Year (FY) 2017. The goal of this cooperative agreement will be to highlight the Dosage Probation Model and to take the lessons learned, successes and challenges from the dosage test pilot sites with the field, and to develop and share an implementation model for jurisdictions.

Goals, Objectives, and Deliverables:

The goal of this cooperative agreement will be to share experiences from the dosage test pilot sites with the field; including successes, challenges, lessons learned, and also to develop and share an implementation model for jurisdictions considering the dosage model to use as a guide for implementation. The successful applicant will have intimate knowledge of the dosage probation concept and key research principles underlying the dosage model, along with familiarity with the dosage implementation strategies; including core activities, processes, and steps a jurisdiction would need to take to implement this approach. The successful applicant will need to work closely with NIC project manager and dosage probation team members in test pilot sites: Napa County, CA and Washington County, MN (and potentially Milwaukee, WI).

The successful applicant will be required to develop a 508 compliant report -with professional design- made available to the field and distributed nationally on Dosage Probation; that includes identifying the key stakeholders within a jurisdiction, what their roles should be for implementing dosage, share the successes and challenges of implementing the dosage probation concept within test pilot sites, along with the lessons learned, conduct peer-to-peer interviews with key stakeholders, case studies, and a road map for implementation that jurisdictions considering the dosage concept can use as a guide.

DEADLINE: Applications must be received before midnight (ET) on May 30, 2017.


Please note effective July 1, 2013 the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) was merged to the System for Award Management (SAM).  The SAM registry and Frequently Asked Questions can be reached at http://www.sam.gov.  Please note that the registration process can take up to 1-3 weeks, so please plan accordingly.

New to the NIC Website: Technology in Corrections

technology package pageRecently added to the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) website is our new web page focusing on Technology in Corrections. In many ways technology has been a help and a hindrance for the corrections field. People working in the field struggle to decide how to handle these technologies…if at all. Technology consistently changes faster than corrections and/or society can keep up with it. Implementing a technology, or plans to battle it (take cell phones for instance), can be a long and difficult process, and before new technology can be implemented, things may have changed. This package page contains information about: computers & the internet, apps, body cameras, bio-metrics & facial recognition, cell phones, drones, electronic monitoring & GPS, and x-rays & scanners, in order to provide information on the biggest trends in technology for the corrections field.

Example resources from the Technology in Corrections page:

Visions of Law Enforcement Technology in the Period 2024-2034: Report of the Law Enforcement Futuring Workshop (2015).

This report describes the results of the Law Enforcement Futuring Workshop, which was held at RAND's Washington Office in Arlington, Virginia, from July 22 to 25, 2014. The objective of this workshop was to identify high-priority technology needs for law enforcement based on consideration of current and future trends in society, technology, and law enforcement over a ten- to 20-year time period." Five chapters comprise this report: introduction; methodology; future law enforcement scenarios—current position, current roles of technology, emerging uses of technology, and future scenarios; technology needs—ranking, topic areas of ranked technology needs, and technology categorization of ranked technology needs; and conclusions—information sharing as a driver toward desirable futures, education and development as a driver, technology research and development as a driver, and conclusions from the workshop. "The output of this workshop described in the report included ten future scenarios and 30 technology needs. The technology needs fell into three general categories — technology-related knowledge and practice, information sharing and use, and technological research and development — and were placed into three priority tiers.

3D Printing and Law Enforcement (2017).

3D printing has the potential to transform the world by simplifying manufacturing, shortening supply chains, democratizing production, creating jobs, and customizing products to our needs. But 3D printing can also be the devil’s playground. 3D printing also has a dark side. Guns have already been 3D printed and criminals are using 3D printers to create new forms of crime.

Electronic Monitoring Has Become the New Debtors Prison (2016).

It all started with a traffic violation. Antonio Green didn’t have a license and admits he shouldn’t have been driving. But when his mother’s 1994 Chrysler Sebring broke down at a Taco Bell near their home in October last year, he decided to drive over to fix it.

Bye, bye, file-in-cake scheme. Prisoners have a new trick. (2017).

Piloted by an unseen operator in central North Carolina, a drone crashed inside a prison fence. A tightly wrapped package – containing a cellphone, tobacco and other contraband apparently intended for inmates – was tethered to the aircraft during that 2015 flight.

In the News: Women Shortchanged by Justice Reforms

women shortchangedThis article summarizes a recent report from the Prisoner Reentry Institute of John Jay College of Criminal Justice on gender and criminal justice reform. The report,  Women In Justice: Gender and the Pathway to Jail, argues that “reforms must be gender-responsive, faithful to the principles of parsimony and proportionality, and engage social services to better serve individuals with criminal justice involvement.”

Highlights from the report:

  • The number of women in the American justice system has grown exponentially, by more than 700%,  from 1980 to 2014.
  • Women of color in particular are disproportionately arrested and incarcerated.
  • The New York City data (from Rikers Island) shows that “women are charged with less serious crimes, are less likely to be charged with violent crimes, and are less likely to return to jail within one year.”
  • Recommended guiding principles of reform:
    1. Interventions to address the needs of justice-involved women in New York City must be gender-responsive and trauma-informed.
    2. The criminal justice system should be used as a hub for identifying the needs of NYC’s justice-involved women and connecting them to social services, but should not mandate participation in programming as part of sentencing or pretrial conditions unless it is a proportionate and parsimonious response.
    3. Social service systems must recognize, engage, and attend to the needs of women with criminal justice system involvement.
  • Recommendations for gender-responsive targeted interventions:
    1. Divert offenses common to women with behavioral health needs;
    2. Increase the use of non-monetary release mechanisms;
    3. Expand pretrial alternatives to individuals charged with certain serious crimes;
    4. Increase defender-based pretrial advocacy capacity;
    5. Increase alternatives to short jail sentences for misdemeanors;
    6. Ensure that gender-responsive services are allocated system-wide; and
    7. Facilitate community connections.

Asia testified before a U.S. Senate Committee on human trafficking and worked for the Department of Justice as a consultant and trainer in the Office for Victims of Crime. Today, Asia works for an anti-human trafficking organization and continues to advocate for anti-trafficking legislation.
