Body

SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:

The Toledo Municipal Court has been awarded a grant of $ $663,024, a renewal from last year, from the State of Ohio, Department of Rehabilitation and Correction for the continuation of the 408 Standard Probation (SP) Program for community-based non-residential programs in 2021-2023.  This grant provides funding for the continuation of intensive supervision, kiosk, and electronic monitoring programs, the services of two (2) Probation Officers, assessments, substance abuse treatment, necessary services and supplies for this program through June 30, 2023.

 

The 408 Standard Probation program provides a means to alleviate some need for jail confinement and at the same time, provides intensive probation supervision of defendants, who might otherwise be sentenced to CCNO for six months.  Defendants approved for the Standard Probation Program are released early from CCNO and receive assessment, drug testing, substance abuse treatment, and other types of mandatory services including in-person weekly contact for high risk offenders.  It is anticipated the program will serve 255 offenders by June 30, 2023.

 

The Kiosk Reporting Program for low level offenders is supported by this grant as well. It is anticipated this program will monitor and supervise approximately 450 low risk offenders.

 

Grant funds also provide electronic monitoring (EM) services. It is anticipated the program will provide EM services for approximately 290 indigent sentenced Toledo Municipal Court defendants.

                     SECTION 1.  That the Mayor is authorized to accept and deposit grant funds for the purpose of intensive supervision and kiosk services for TMC sentenced defendants and electronic monitoring services for TMC indigent sentenced offenders and to execute any required grant documents to reflect the grant award.
