Updated-Evidence Based-Cost Effective- Infrastructure Continued

  
technical violations or prison management issues which should have been addressed at location of incidence/offence. Repairing the High Security Special Needs facility in Rawlins will not only encourage these mismanagement practices to continue but it will also tie future tax dollars to this unnecessary prison design.
Evidence based: simply put, this is a current practice, procedure or policy that has been proven to work best and supported by science, by using objective and measurable facts, not opinion or emotion(s). (See Canada and Germany for best "overall" examples.)
Classification: a specialist in this field can use an "up to date, validated, evidence based" assessment and place people in cost effective appropriate and necessary  custody, programming etc... which can be modified and adjusted to fit individual case plans.
Orientation: This is a process that helps prepare an individual to "successfully follow" a case plan. This can last 30 to 90 days and if "properly" completed can establish an effective baseline for case management to work with. This period of time can also be used for training to help process individuals to the lowest custody level. Note, the high security special needs prison in Rawlins has had a maintained increase in violence and warehousing since its inception. Bad prison habits have been established which were previously non-existent. This hurts not only an inmate within the system, but also becomes wasteful spending by the state in allowing these prison management styles to operate instead of using a system that saves tax-payers money and helps the individual. A "special" orientation may be necessary for approximately 100 prisoners currently housed at Rawlins. This special orientation may need to be followed up by a "step-down" program. Please see to it that *trained orientation/classification specialists are hired for this transition. (Use Canadian-German techniques) If this is done properly Wyoming will have a majority of low-medium "in-custody" prisoners. These prisoners cost less because they are trained and motivated to effectively manage themselves.
Validated: This word helps to isolate specific evidence based research and is used to direct the legislature to the countries of Canada and Germany to see successful applications.
Value scores: (see Aggravation/Mitigation- Value Scores) Case specific value scores can be used to fill in the gaps that a prisoner may have. This information can be applied to individual case plans to assist successful re-entry goals. Value scores could range from 1-10, for a "risk potential" score, which would be used to establish hours of necessary treatment. These scores can also be applied when addressing "other" identified gaps which could be used to recommend beneficial endeavors like developing specific reading and vocabulary lists.
Multiple use modular units (MUMUs): As "in custody" needs "transition," multiple-use modular units can be designed and built by Wyoming prisoners to be adjustable to fit future infrastructure needs. As up-dated technology and evidence based intervention strategies increase "in custody" requirements will be adjusted to meet them. MUMUs can be built to house prisoners at a facility location and then be transferred to prison industry sites/locations such as forestry camps; mine reclamation sites etc... These units can also be designed and built for non-profit work release centers and non-profit day care centers
Training: This addresses several components which affect all areas of the criminal justice system-from Judicial Education Programs (see Judicial Education Programs) to case management and security. "All" areas can/must be updated and improved. Please use Canada and Germany as best current example for all areas.
Trade-offs/offsets: A cost benefit analysis can be done on any industry or service that prisoners provide. If Wyoming will look first to available resources and see the potential of necessary projects, the state will find a host of "Reformative and Restorative" possibilities. Examples include*Forestry/Park Service: build, fix and clean Wyoming trails and parks; *Coal mine reclamation: With the various bankruptcies in the coal mine industry there could be a total of $2 billion dollars lost by/through these company's no longer being "legally" obligated to address mine reclamation. This may fall back to the state of Wyoming. Whatever the case, mine reclamation "must" be done. A trade off can be established in this area which can provide a lesser-loss/win solution for the state of Wyoming. The work could be done at a discount byprison labor. A portion of "restoration" can be achieved through wage restitution. If a job normally pays $25-'35 dollars an hour, 50% to 75% could go to *offset payment of: court costs, fines, child support, education cognitive skills training and personal savings. If Wyoming would research training found in Canada and Germany and add available technology, trade-offs and offsets could potentially climb in an exponentially positive direction! (Please make sure that industry wages are ethically based and provide more than adequate incentives for prisoners.) .
