County & Out-of-State Beds: The Department was authorized $4,122,800 from the General Fund, and $90,600 federal funds to pay for housing additional inmates in county jails and in privately operated prisons out-of-state. The inmate population has grown an average of 35 per month rather than 15 which was the level at which the department was originally appropriated. The original appropriation for non-state beds was $5,059,300 from the General Fund, and $900,000 of federal funds.
Financial Specialist Sr.: Zero-funded.
Medical Services Contract: The Department will be able to use $66,000 collected from inmates under the medical co-payment and return $10,100 to the General Fund. In addition to the supplemental authorized, the department is applying the excess in the medical equipment escrow of $155,000 to the additional amount required for the new contract. The original appropriation for contracted medical services in FY 2000 was $8,002,900, and estimated expenditures are $8,199,400 – a difference of $196,500.
Detour Program: This program is designed to bring heightened awareness of prison life and its consequences to high-risk juveniles and their parents. A program coordinator will match each juvenile and his or her parents with an inmate team member. There are three phases to the program 1) experiencing sights and sounds of incarceration, 2) thinking about the experience, 3) and then talking about the experience. The objective of the program is to educate juveniles and their families about the negative aspects of prison life, and provide alternative strategies for dealing with destructive behavior and negative influences. Jerome County will reimburse the department for the full cost of one-half FTP for the Detour coordinator position.
Additional Funding Chaplain Corps: The contract for chaplain services is increased in the Idaho State Correctional Institution (up to $1,200 a month) and the Idaho Maximum Security Institution (up to $2,600 a month) beginning in February 2000.
Out-of-State Parolees: The Commission for Pardons and Parole was authorized spending authority for bonds collected from inmates who are approved to move out-of-state. Idaho Code Section 20-223 was amended last legislative session to allow the Parole Commission to collect these bonds to ensure that parolees who violate parole while residing in a state other than Idaho could be returned at the inmates’ expense rather than the taxpayer. Once an inmate is discharged from parole the money is returned to the payer. This spending authority will allow the Commission to either spend the money for travel expenses or to refund the bond at the end of parole.
