To accurately assess the effectiveness of its programs, Los Angeles should determine how to accurately identify in its case management system the JJCPA programs and services in which each individual participates or should enhance its system to provide this capability.

6-Month Agency Response

As mentioned in our 60-Day response, the County of Los Angeles Probation Department's case management system is designed to track Probation youth case information only as models are designed to meet other criteria. We are in the process of seeking ways to upgrade our case management system to meet the evolving needs of data collection and evaluation.

60-Day Agency Response

The County of Los Angeles Probation Department's case management system is designed to track Probation youth case information only and is not designed for non-Probation youth or all participant information as models are designed to meet other criteria. Therefore, all program participation cannot be captured in the current system as designed. We will continue to seek ways to upgrade Probation's case management system to meet the evolving needs of data collection and evaluation.
