Hudson County has been at the forefront of a national discussion on reentry policy and minimizing use of public systems by high-need frequent system-users over the past eight years. The Hudson County Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (HCDOCR) is committed to reducing jail overcrowding, disproportionate minority justice-involvement, and recidivism through evidence based interventions. The most complex population to assist are individuals with mental illness and co-occurring substance abuse disorders, and are chronically homeless a group typically prone to justice-involvement.

What we now strive for are policies that allow individuals to avoid involvement with the justice system from the onset of low-level, non-violent criminal activity. Please join us as we are hosting a SAMHSA Sequential Intercept Mapping (SIM) Planning Workshop intended on assisting the County’s goals and increase efficiency in implementation of an effective and widely-supported front-end program to serve those with co-occurring mental illness, as opposed to solely serving this target population at the back-end of their judicial sentence. e. It is vital for all groups to go through the process of developing an updated SIM so that we can better identify service gaps and potential challenges to implementation of front-end alternative justice policies. It is of utmost importance that SIM results paint a clear picture of current and future service tracks, ensuring that funds and resources are not duplicated, and are utilized in the most efficient and effective way possible.
