Making Long-Term Impacts to Recidivism – A Case Study
Napa County has put three correctional programs in place to target criminal thinking and prepare inmates for re-entry back into the community. The County’s programs are unique in that they begin behind the walls of the jail and continue in the Community Corrections Service Center, a community-based day reporting program. Together, these programs provide the County with effective tools to manage changing offender populations and make long-term impacts to recidivism.
• Mary Butler, Chief Probation Officer, Napa County
• Kathy Prizmich, Business Development Coordinator, Community Based Services, BI Incorporated
The current correctional environment post-realignment and correctional facility operations most susceptible to litigation will be discussed. Speakers will also spotlight best practices and other litigation avoidance tactics.
• Paul Mello, Partner, Hanson Bridgett, LLP
• Samantha Wolfe, Associate, Hanson Bridgett, LLP
10:00 – 10:15 a.m. — Break

OnSite Employee Clinics
In a continued effort to help counties contain spiraling healthcare costs, the CSAC Finance Corporation has rolled out a new program to place onsite employee health clinics in California counties. With the new OnSite Employee Health Clinic Program, the potential for savings is significant in general health, increased productivity and workers compensation. A case study from Deschutes County, Oregon, will be presented.

Retiree Health Exchange
Pressure is mounting on California counties to maximize the value of tax dollars while meeting commitments to retirees. This new program of the CSAC Finance Corporation can help remove the burden of retiree healthcare administration from the county and offer retirees more healthcare options in the open marketplace.
