Michigan Department of Corrections will host a live video presentation on Tuesday, September 26

Date: Tuesday, September 26
Time: 10:00 a.m.–Noon

Two years ago the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC) started the COMPAS at PSI pilot in Kalamazoo County. The pilot was geared towards providing the court with a more robust Presentence Investigation Report (PSIR) that included criminogenic need information relevant to the specific offender. This information was obtained through the use of the COMPAS (Correctional Offender Management Profiling for Alternative Sanctions).

Since the first site in 2015, the MDOC has expanded the pilot to fifteen counties. The responses from the parties involved in the sentencing process have been positive. Those involved are able see how the recommendations for the conditions of supervision tie into the needs of the offender. As such, the MDOC will be moving forward to include COMPAS results in all Presentence Investigation Reports starting October 9, 2017.

In order to inform all parties involved in the sentencing process, the MDOC will host a live video presentation on Tuesday, September 26, 2017. The presentation will be from 10:00 a.m. to Noon.

You can visit the State Bar of Michigan Events calendar, where members can register for the presentation and also obtain the related documents.
