Don and Linda met prior to today's meeting. Don reports that the survey will be taken down briefly, but will be posted again in the near future. Don announces that there will be a Technology Committee meeting prior to the next POPAI meeting (10 a.m.)
Chiefs Executive Committee:
Linda brings up the email received from Brian Barton of Community Corrections. The correspondence that was sent to Community Corrections Directors by the President of IACCAC, Brian Barton, was brought up for discussion. This correspondence gave the impression that probation and community corrections are, or will be, in competition against one another. In the judgment of the Executive Board of POPAI, probation departments, community corrections programs and parole in Indiana have a rich history of cooperation and function best when working together in the best interests of the community in which they serve. It is disappointing that the leadership of IACCAC is attempting to undermine that cooperative spirit out of concern for growing the industry.
Katherine moved to close the meeting. Cherie seconded, all were in favor. Motion carried.
There will be no March 2006 meeting. The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 12, 2006, @ 11 a.m. the Marion Superior Court Probation Department South Office, located at 3920 Madison Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana.
