 Summary Analysis

1.1 Analysis.htm

During the six quarter period of FY08 Q4 through FY10 Q1:

·         A lower violent infraction rate was achieved each quarter than was experienced in any of the five quarters proceeding that period – all prisons combined

·         Four Major prisons achieved significant violence reduction:

·         Monroe Corrections Complex

·         McNeil Island Corrections Center

·         Stafford Creek Corrections Center

·         Washington Corrections Center

Three key initiatives were implemented in FY08 Q4 to address an upward trend and spikes of violence:

·         Security Threat Group (STG) management strategy

·         Identifying, documenting and separating STG affiliates at Reception Centers

·         Opt-out and targeted interventions

·         Violence reduction plans developed locally at prisons

·         Violence reduction planning committees

·         Violence related information and reduction strategies widely shared with staff 

·         Offender involved violence reduction projects

·         Biannual Prisons Division GMAP reports – (conducted each January and July)

·         Prison specific trend data, performance targets, focusing questions and report format are developed by DOC Planning and Research for consistency in performance measurement

·         Analysis reports and action plans are developed at each prison

·         Reports are used by local and division prison administrators for planning purposes

Since implementation of these initiatives the agency has maintained a reduced and stable violent infraction rate.
