Workgroups comprised of Advisory Committee members, Illinois Family Violence Coordinating Council staff, Local Council Coordinators and local Family Violence Coordinating Council members reviewed the protocols, updated statutes, person-first language and developed new resources for these protocols.

The purpose of this protocol is to effectively guide prosecutor in responding to people with disabilities and older adults who experience domestic violence, sexual assault, abuse, neglect or exploitation through model guidelines, investigative procedures, and legal considerations. Implementation of the protocol will allow for successful partnering with law enforcement, advocates, and others in the criminal justice system in the response to victims who are older adults or those with disabilities. Additionally, implementation supports alignment with legal mandates as well as current best practices. Prosecutor response is critical to ensuring that victims who are older adults, or those with disabilities, have equal access to the criminal justice system in a compassionate, proactive, individualized manner. Use of this protocol will promote a more coordinated community response with prosecutor by bringing together health care, social service and adult protective services in serving older adults and people with disabilities who are victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation.

CHICAGO—November 17, 2016. Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority Executive Director John Maki today announced release of the Adult Redeploy Illinois (ARI) Annual Report. The report outlines the program’s achievements through 2015, its fifth calendar year.

From 2011-2015, ARI distributed more than $15.5 million in grants to local jurisdictions to support problem-solving courts, enhanced probation supervision with services, and other evidence-based interventions responsive to the needs of their communities. In total, the program’s statewide network has diverted nearly 2,500 non-violent offenders from Illinois prisons, representing cost avoidance to the state of nearly $76 million.

The ARI site network grew to include 24 locally designed and controlled prison diversion programs at 22 sites covering 39 counties in 2015.

“Adult Redeploy Illinois is outcome-focused,” said Executive Director Maki. “Local programs work with individuals to address unmet needs, such as treatment for addiction or mental health issues, which may be contributing to their criminal behavior. This can put an end to the costly cycle of recidivism and imprisonment.”

ARI is a state funding program designed to build and support more effective and less expensive community alternatives to incarceration for non-violent offender. As an accountability mechanism, ARI sites agree to reduce by 25 percent (based on the past three years’ average) the number of people they send to the Illinois Department of Corrections from a locally defined target population. The state saves money through the reduced use of incarceration in state facilities and a portion of the savings are invested locally to support stronger, healthier communities. In state fiscal year 2015, the per capita cost of incarceration was $23,400 per year while the average ARI intervention costs approximately $4,400.

ARI provides a vital public safety and public health benefit throughout the state and supports the State Commission on Criminal Justice & Sentencing Reform’s decarceration goals. Strengthening the ARI network will be crucial to future criminal justice reform.

  • The 2nd Judicial Circuit, serving Crawford, Edwards, Franklin, Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jefferson, Lawrence, Richland, Wabash, Wayne, and White counties.

In calendar year 2015, the award-winning ARI program maintained the strong local partnerships on which its success is built, despite being impacted by the state budget impasse. During the year, 22 sites covering 39 counties served 1,917 non-violent offenders with community supervision and services in lieu of incarceration. Of these, 1,641 remained out of the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Since 2011, ARI has distributed more than $15.5 million in grants to local jurisdictions. In that time, the ARI statewide network of sites diverted about 2,500 non-violent offenders from Illinois prisons, representing cost avoidance to the state of nearly $76 million (based on the difference in cost between incarceration and community-based supervision).
