Intensive Detention Reentry Program
The Department implemented the Intensive Detention Reentry Program (IDRP) in July 2004. IDRP is intended for use in chronic non-compliance parole cases in which community supervision is likely to be continued and a need for short term programming has been identified. The Department currently contracts with the Ingham and the Clinton County Jails to house up to 250 parole violators - ICJ has 190 beds and CCJ has 60 beds. Violation behavior could include technical violations - e.g., failure to report, failure to attend treatment, etc., - or may include new misdemeanor or non-assaultive felony pending charges that meet certain criteria. Offenders may be placed in IDRP for up to 120 days with the average stay of 30 days.
IDRP falls under the jurisdiction of the Office of Parole and Probation Services, Field Operations Administration. Parole agents working within the IDRP program assist offenders with housing, treatment and employment needs. The agents assist the parolees with their transition back into the community, promoting offender success. While in jail parolees are able to participate in a seminar regarding Michigan Works employment opportunities and attend Thinking Matters, a basic, short-term cognitive behavioral program.
