Community Corrections Response to Pandemic Flu and Other Crises
Contracting Agency: Bureau of Justice Assistance

APPA will collaborate with the Association of State Correctional Administrators (ASCA) to provide guidance to community corrections agencies for formulating strategic plans and protocols for responding to pandemic flu and other crises. To meet this goal, APPA and ASCA will review existing literature, collect pertinent information from their respective constituencies, and identify experts from relevant fields to participate in a working group. The working group will identify issues and strategies that are central to effectively maintaining adequate levels of operation and offender supervision in crisis situations. With continuing input from ASCA and the working group, guidelines based on the body of information collected through the literature search, from practitioners, and from the working group will be compiled and disseminated to the field.
