LIBERTY HEALTHCARE CORPORATION ANNOUNCES INDIANA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION’S SEX OFFENDER MANAGEMENT AND MONITORING PROGRAM, MANAGED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH LIBERTY BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CORPORATION, AWARDED “PROGRAM OF THE YEAR” BY THE INDIANA CRIMINAL JUSTICE ASSOCIATION
Liberty Behavioral Health Corporation (Liberty) is pleased that the Indiana Department of Correction’s Indiana Sex Offender Management and Monitoring Program (INSOMM) has been awarded the 2014 “Program of the Year” by the Indiana Criminal Justice Association (ICJA). The program has been managed in partnership with the Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) by Liberty Behavioral Health Corporation since 1999.
The award was presented at the ICJA’s 2014 annual conference in Indianapolis. Adam Deming, Psy.D, Liberty’s Executive Director for the INSOMM program received the award on behalf of the IDOC, Liberty, and its many credentialed providers across the state who contribute to the program’s success.
INSOMM provides a continuum of sex offender-specific risk assessment, treatment, and community management services for men, women, and adolescents. Its mission is to enhance public safety by reducing sex offenses. In its fifteen years of operation, INSOMM has helped to keep Indiana’s sex offense recidivism rate among the lowest in the country.
The program delivers specialized risk assessment and treatment to offenders during incarceration and then requires follow-up treatment and community monitoring after they are released on parole.
IDOC Commissioner Bruce Lemmon said, “The INSOMM program is a public/private partnership with a strong track record of contributing to the safety of all Hoosiers. IDOC is proud to share this recognition with Dr. Deming and his team."
ICJA’s core objectives are to promote awareness of the criminal justice system, advance a spirit of cooperation among the many disciplines of the criminal justice field, raise the standards of professional practices in the delivery of treatment and rehabilitative services, and deliver training and educational opportunities for criminal justice professionals statewide.
