BJA FY 14 Swift and Certain Sanctions (SAC) Training and Technical Assistance Resource Center

There are a multiple states, counties, and cities that are interested in implementing “Swift and Certain” (SAC) models of supervision with offenders in the community.

This interest has grown out of the potential promise that these SAC models have shown in effectively reducing recidivism

and preventing crime.

In particular, Hawaii’s Opportunity Probation with Enforcement (HOPE) program has been shown to have promise, and as a result there is significant interest and activity in implementing this model of supervision, and other versions of the HOPE model which rely on swift and certain sanctions.

Through this FY 2014 grant announcement, BJA will select a national training and technical assistance (TTA) partner to work with BJA, its federal partners, states, tribes, and local jurisdictions to provide training, technical assistance, and coaching to jurisdictions interested in establishing SAC initiatives.

The TTA provider will:
Develop a process to accept, review, and approve requests for assistance in coordination with BJA.

Provide need-based onsite assistance, developing and facilitating web-based trainings, hosting public webinars, and providing office-based assistance to parties interested in the HOPE model, or other versions of SAC.

Establish a web-based resource center where information related to HOPE and SAC strategies can be maintained, shared, discussed, and used as a resource to support jurisdictions interested in implementing these models.

Help jurisdictions build their capacity to implement their SAC approach with fidelity.

Develop relevant materials and resources for the field.
