VDBHDS November 2016 Report - Study of Alternatives to Secure Confinement for Sexually Violent Predator: An Analysis of Cost-Effective Alternative Methods of Treatment and Monitoring





Update: 

I’ve realized that I never posted this 2012 report http://leg2.state.va.us/dls/h&sdocs.nsf/fc86c2b17a1cf388852570f9006f1299/e2621da391e75a03852579f4006f046b/$FILE/HD16.pdf on Virginia SVP Protocols for Initial Screening (for civil commitment) and I think it tells an interesting story leading up to the below November 2016 report.

Original Post: 
For the last 2 weeks I’ve been checking for the 2016 Virginia Crime Report, but it has not been released yet. 
 
So I decided to look for some past Virginia Reports that I may have missed and one that I came across was from November 2016. 
 
Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services
Study of Alternatives to Secure Confinement for Sexually Violent Predator:
An Analysis of Cost-Effective Alternative Methods of Treatment and Monitoring
It’s only 22 pages so won’t take long for those who are interested. 
 
I’m posting the link today because some of the blogs followers are treatment providers and some specialize in the Sexually Violent Predator category.
