EVALUATION AND SYSTEM DESCRIPTION OF ASAP JUDICIAL SYSTEMS. VOLUME VI: LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CALIFORNIA CASE STUDY
The objective of the case study was to examine ASAP-funded investigation, referral, and monitoring systems in Los Angeles County. The comparative analysis found that the quick, inexpensive presentencing screening and referral procedure provided by public health investigation staff in the Los Angeles Downtown Traffic Court was superior to other methods, particularly in its efficiency. Services provided by the probation department, which involved extensive investigations, particularly in the Pomona Municipal Court, were inappropriate for DUI screening and referral, but provided effective long-term personal supervision and compliance monitoring. The Van Nuys Municipal Court received postsentencing investigation, referral and monitoring support from volunteer counselors with the local alcoholism council. The volunteer approach was found to be an efficient, inexpensive procedure despite a high staff turnover rate.
