Criminal Justice Planning

The Criminal Justice Planning Department was formed from the existing Intermediate Punishment Department in September 1999. The creation of the Criminal Justice Planning Department reflected a new emphasis on system wide criminal justice activities within the county going beyond the alternative sentencing activities previously handled by the Intermediate Punishment Department. In addition to program development and monitoring, the department is responsible for scheduling and coordinating monthly meetings of the Centre County Criminal Justice Advisory Board and providing support services to the Board and its committees.

The Criminal Justice Planning Department maintains a close working relationship with the Court, Probation Department, District Attorney, County Prison and other county offices with regard to criminal justice issues. The department serves as a liaison among county offices and other criminal justice agencies within the county, and is the primary point of contact with the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.

Other Activities

In addition to program development and monitoring, the CJ Planning Department collects data and prepares reports on a variety of criminal justice activities within the county. The department maintains information on Supervised Bail and Intermediate Punishment Programs (which include In Home Detention, Inpatient Drug/Alcohol Treatment, and Intensive Supervision). The program also collects data on jail use and jail populations, the number and types of criminal cases filed, and other related criminal justice activities.
