We are measuring the number of citizen complaints received by the department involving officers. Through the use of body-worn and in-car camera systems, the department seeks to collect data to evaluate training opportunities and provide accurate documentation of laws enforcement and citizen interaction.
Percentage of juveniles under court ordered supervision for delinquency/CHINS offenses that do not receive a new adjudication each quarter. This KPI measures the percentage of juveniles under probation supervision for delinquent / Child in Need of Services (CHINS) offenses that do not receive a new adjudication for the reporting quarter. This is essentially a qualified measure of recidivism among probation-supervised youth.
This measure tracks the percentage of jail inmates participating in literacy and vocational programs in the jail who graduate from the program. The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office makes a number of programs available to inmates. The Culinary Arts Program allows inmates to obtain certification to get a job working in a kitchen. Students learn the basics of food preparation, safety guidelines, and meal planning. Other programs teach literacy with an ultimate goal of enabling inmates to earn a GED. Another program pairs inmates with rescued shelter dogs. Inmates have the opportunity to train and bond with their assigned dog with the goal of preparing the dog to pass an obedience test and find a permanent home.
In addition to advocating for the legal rights and protections of child clients alleged to be abused and/or neglected, the Office of the Child Attorney strives to achieve permanency for each child. Permanency is defined as a legal, permanent family living arrangement. This includes reunification with the birth family, living with relatives, guardianship, or adoption for children removed from their home and placed in foster care. When children must be removed from their families to ensure their safety, permanency planning efforts focus on returning them home as soon as is safely possible or placing them with another legally permanent family, which may include relatives, adoptive families who obtain legal custody, or guardians. This measure tracks the percentage cases in which the child achieves permanency within two years of the initiation of the case. A case is not considered closed by the Office of the Child Attorney until permanency is achieved.
We are measuring the percentage of audit recommendations agreed to by management. Recommendations state what internal audit believes should be done to accomplish beneficial results. They do not direct what must be done but seek to convince others of what needs to be done. As such, our recommendations are action-oriented, convincing, well-supported, and effective. When appropriately implemented, they should get the desired beneficial results.
