Connecticut Department of Corrections Women's Supervision and Treatment Model Upgrade 

Score 3.1/5

Program Description

Byrne JAG funds initially supported the Connecticut Department of Corrections in the development of a new supervision model for the state women’s prison, York Corrections Institution. Byrne JAG funding was used to develop training curricula, along with services to support a trauma informed and recovery-oriented supervision and treatment model for female offenders. The new curricula developed with the help of Byrne JAG funds resulted in reduction in length of stay and generated cost savings.
