• Volo and LCSO has agreed on terms to continue the police services contract for a three-year period from May 1, 2018, through April 30, 2021. LCSO has provided police services to Volo for 13 years.
• The contract includes a continuation of services which includes two, eight and a half hour shifts per day, for a total of 17 hours per day or 6,205 hours per year.
• This contract includes an increase to reflect anticipated labor costs, the cost of 911 dispatch services and additional costs into the pricing structure of the contract.
• This contract requires Volo, on a semi-annual basis, to rebate to LCSO all e-citation and prisoner review agency fees disbursed to the Volo by the Circuit Clerk.
• The remaining hourly rate charges are consistent with recently approved County police services contracts.
• The annual increase is sufficient to cover costs associated with this contract.
Joint resolution authorizing the Lake County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) to accept a grant from the Healthcare Foundation of Northern Lake County for the Jail High Utilizer Diversion and Health Engagement Project and authorizing an emergency appropriation in the amount of $100,000.
• The LCSO has applied to participate in the Healthcare Foundation of Northern Lake County’s $100,000 grant process to fund the second year of the Jail Diversion Case Management (High Utilizers) Program.
• The LCSO serves as the lead agency on this grant, which will work to reduce the incarceration of persons who are from low-income or minority communities; as well as protected class individuals.
• The High Utilizers Program will continue to provide extensive case management services to the communities listed above and use that case management to divert these individuals from the criminal justice system.
• The expected outcomes of this program, associated with extensive case management with the high utilizers, will remain the same, and is considered a stop gap measure while a sustainable funding source is sought.
• The creation of this program will require the LCSO to extend the contract it has with Nicasa to provide intensive case management services that meet grant requirements and will be required to provide and meet performance measurement and reporting standards.
• There is no match required. The LCSO will provide in-kind services for this grant in the form of staff time spent by the Community-Based Corrections and the Business Office. It will also include Information Technology (IT) support for TriTech/Service Point, report writing and generation.

Joint resolution authorizing an emergency appropriation in the amount of $17,433 for a part-time therapist at the Hulse Juvenile Detention Center, with offsetting revenue from the Regional Office of Education (ROE).
• The increased incidence of emotional and behavior disordered juveniles in the Hulse Detention Center has made educating the juvenile residents more challenging, particularly as the age of juvenile detention has increased to age eighteen.
• A part-time therapist would help to address this situation by working with the Court’s Psychological Services, teachers, teacher’s assistants, and juvenile counselors in addressing the emotional and behavioral issues of the juveniles as they adjust to the secure educational setting.
• The therapist would address mental health and substance abuse, family situations, trauma, and other factors impacting the juvenile residents including crisis intervention.
• Funding for the part-time therapist position has been secured from state revenue managed by the ROE.
• The State of Illinois Orphan Act provide revenue for education services and currently funds 11 positions at the detention center.
• This resolution authorizes an emergency appropriation in the amount of $17,433 for the remainder of fiscal year 2018 with offsetting revenue from the ROE and authorizes an increase in head count in the Hulse Detention Center by one half a full-time equivalent (FTE).
