EVALUATION AND SYSTEM DESCRIPTION OF ASAP JUDICIAL SYSTEMS. VOLUME V: PHOENIX, ARIZONA CASE STUDY
The objective of the Phoenix case study was to document and assess the efforts of the Phoenix drinking-driver control system to manage an exceptionally large volume of drinking-driving cases and to provide an inducement for DWI offenders to participate in appropriate alcohol therapy. The study described and evaluated a special prosecution-based program called PACT. PACT is a comprehensive plea-bargaining program designed to provide an expedient, uniform, and fair method of classifying and diverting DWI offenders into a short-term alcohol rehabilitation program with the incentive of earning a plea bargain which avoided a mandatory jail sentence. The PACT concept was found to be effective and transferable to any system requiring a routine, high-volume but discriminating referral mechanism.
