The Justice Center at UAA has received a $34,000 grant to assist the Alaska Department of Corrections in the design and implementation of a data base for the DOC sex offender treatment programs throughout the state. The data base will contain demographic data, treatment information and recidivism information on individuals participating in the programs. It will be used to administer and evaluate the sex offender programs and to document treatment procedures.
The Justice Center has contracted to create the computer program which will contain
the data and to train DOC personnel in its implementation. The Center will also assist
DOC in producing summary statistics from the data. Dr. Allan Barnes is supervising
the work of the Center on this project.
