1. Sheriff

a. Reclassify Re-Entry Case Manager to Re-Entry Coordinator 

- To ratify the reclassification of the 
- Mental Health/Police Services Millage Re-Entry Case Manager Position
- To Re-Entry Coordinator

- Re-entry activities will be extensive and occur across a variety of organizations
- A Coordinator is needed to oversee and direct the work of service providers and other team members as it related to discharge planning for the jail.
- This Coordinator position was created as a Case Manager as part of the four year budget process
- Upon review of the job description, the Sheriff’s Office has determined that this position should be reclassified due to the following:
- This position was created at a lower-than-intended grade. During the millage planning discussion, this position was budgeted as grade 30. 
- A higher grade will attract a larger pool of qualified applicants and aid in talent retention. 
- This position is at a higher level when coordinating services and team members as reentry services have become a vital part of the Sheriff’s Office mission. Over the last 3 years the Sheriff’s Office has established partnerships with local service providers and educators to develop and implement a solid reentry program within the jail, as well as transition planning into the community. Each of our core partnerships have allocated resources and staff to help provide services to inmates and returning citizens. A team representing Mental Health, Substance Use, Education/Employment, Mentoring, Community Engagement, and Corrections work together to create a discharge plan for all sentenced individuals released from the jail. These plans include areas of identified need and support and can include housing, education, employment, continued treatment services, and mentoring in the community. 
- The Reentry Coordinator will be responsible for finalizing all discharge plans and coordinating the services and plans of all our community partners. This new role will also allow for the coordination of plans into the community.
- This change will position the Sheriff’s Office to take the necessary steps to enhance and develop reentry service delivery.

- Eliminate 1.0 FTE:
- 1.0 FTE CC Re-Entry Case Services Manager
Group: 8100, Grade 27
