APPENDIX A: Sample Annual Report Form

INTRODUCTION

In 1988, the Commission of Correction, recognizing the many changes in correctional practice over the prior half century, issued a substantially revised "Annual Report Guidelines for County Correctional Facilities".

The continued advancement of the past nine years, specifically in the areas of electronic data reporting, has prompted the updating of these Guidelines by the Commission, in cooperation with the jail administrators committee of the NYS Sheriffs’ Association.

Forward from Chairman Croce:

November 1, 1997

Dear Colleague:

The revised "Annual Report Guidelines for County Correctional Facilities" was developed as a result of a joint effort between the Jail Administrator’s Committee of the New York State Sheriffs’ Association and the Commission of Correction. This 1997 revised edition is a streamlined product which is not only beneficial to county correctional facilities and the Commission but to the entire criminal justice community.

We hope that these revised Annual Report Guidelines will improve the quality of information provided by, and shared between, criminal justice agencies.

Sincerely,

Alan J. Croce, Chairman/Commissioner

ANNUAL REPORT GUIDELINES FOR COUNTY CORRECTIONAL FACILITIES

ITEM I. INMATES IN CUSTODY END OF LAST YEAR, MIDNIGHT 12/31

DEFINITION: Inmates in Custody End of Last Year Midnight, 12/31 -

The total number of county inmates under legal custody of the county’s sheriff or corrections department (regardless whether they are physically in the jail or not) plus all other inmates physically in the jail on midnight 12/31.

The breakdown of Items I (1-7) distinguishes county inmates (both those physically present and those who are not) from inmates held for other jurisdictions at the stroke of midnight 12/31. The number of Inmates in Custody End of Last Year Midnight 12/31 is the last day of the year prior to the annual report year you are compiling.

PURPOSE:

To collect a snapshot across all county correctional facilities of the total number of Inmates in Custody End of Last Year, midnight 12/31. This snapshot will be used to reconcile your annual report figures. Specifically, the number of Inmates in Custody End of Last Year, Midnight 12/31 will be used to verify the number of Inmates in Custody End of This Year, Midnight 12/31 Item VII).

EXAMPLE:

The following example illustrates the total number of Inmates in Custody End of Last Year Midnight 12/31/98 (For the annual report covering 1/1/98 - 12/31/98) for the Montgomery County Jail. Follow this example through the entire explanation of Item I, 1 through 7.

1. COUNTY CENSUS

DEFINITION: County Census is the total number of county inmates under the legal custody of the county’s sheriff or corrections department regardless of their present physical whereabouts.

Include only those inmates belonging to this county (remanded to this facility by the courts in this county) whether they are physically in your facility or not. (Include county inmates housed out and intermittents not physically present at midnight 12/31). Do not include inmates who are housed in from another jurisdiction (substitute jail orders, parole violators, federals, etc.). The 12/31 Census is for the last day of the year prior to the annual report year you are compiling.

PURPOSE:

To collect a snapshot of only your county’s inmates. Each county will be responsible for reporting its own inmates, so that on a statewide basis there is a clear picture of the Census in each county.

EXAMPLE:

Montgomery County has a county census of 54 on midnight 12/31/88. (For the annual report covering 1/1/98 - 12/31/98. 50 are physically in the facility, 1 is housed out to a local hospital, 1 is housed out to Herkimer County and 2 are intermittents not physically in the facility. Note that inmates housed-in are not included.

ITEM II. INMATES RECEIVED FROM COURTS OF THIS COUNTY

DEFINITION: County Admission - county inmates received are only those inmates committed or remanded to the custody of this county’s sheriff or corrections department, by any of the courts within this county.

PURPOSE:

To collect from each individual county only those inmates committed to the jail from courts within your county. EACH COUNTY WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR REPORTING ITS OWN COUNTY INMATE ADMISSIONS ONLY. If you house in inmates from other county jails, you will not report any of those inmates as your county inmates. If you house out inmates to other counties, you are responsible for reporting all information on your inmates throughout the entire annual report. This distinction eliminates duplicative reporting of the same inmate when admitted to different facilities under substitute jail order.

EXAMPLE:

Montgomery County houses in many inmates from other jurisdictions. In addition, Montgomery houses in federal inmates. None of these inmates will be reported in Item II on Montgomery’s report. (They will be recorded in Item III - Inmates Admitted and Housed for Other Jurisdictions This Year Housed In). Fulton County does complete Item II on its report for its county inmates (inmates committed to the sheriff’s department from the courts in their county).

DEFINITION: Reason for Commitment - In the event of multiple charges, the highest single offense classification at the time of admission is the controlling factor or reason for commitment. For example: multiple charges consisting of two "B" misdemeanors and one "C" felony would be entered as a "C" felony.

PURPOSE:

To consistently collect from each county the one most serious offense category upon admission.

EXAMPLE:

This individual is sentenced to the County Jail on the following offenses: Burglary 3rd (PL 140.20) Class D. Felony and Assault 3rd (PL 120.00) Class A. Misdemeanor. Reason for Commitment: Felony. (Class D. Felony is a more serious offense than Class A. Misdemeanor). When the offense classes are different, the most serious offense class takes precedence over the lesser class of offense.

A.- B. SENTENCED TO THIS FACILITY

DEFINITION: County Admission (sentenced) - The initial entry or status change (unsentenced to sentenced) of a county inmate by reason of conviction and sentence to this facility by any of the courts of this county. One admission per individual regardless of the number of convictions/commitments arising out of the original arrest. (The most serious offense classification is the controlling reason for the commitment, i.e., felony, misdemeanor, etc.).

...One person + one arrest = one admission...

If, however, the same individual, having been discharged from this facility, is subsequentlyconvicted and sentenced to this facility by any of the courts of this county on charges/commitments arising out of the original or a separate arrest it would be recorded as another admission. (Initial entry).

...One person + two separate incarcerations = two admissions...

EXAMPLE: (Recording consecutive sentences)

A woman is sentenced to the jail on the following charges arising out of the same arrest: Bigamy (PL.225.15) Class E Felony and Offering False Instrument 1st (PL.175.35) Class E Felony. She is subsequently sentenced on a separate charge of Assault 3rd(PL.120.00) Class A Misdemeanor, which is to run consecutively.

Do not count her as a second admission until she has been discharged from her first sentence.

PURPOSE:

To collect the number of County Sentenced Admissions which are sentenced by the courts in your county only.

Any inmates housed in for another facility or jurisdiction are not included.

DO NOT INCLUDE STATE READIES AS A COUNTY SENTENCED INMATE. State ready inmates are not recognized as sentenced inmates for the purpose of this report since they are not sentenced to this facility. An unsentenced county inmate who is sentenced to do state time is merely continued on as an unsentenced county inmate.

A. SENTENCED TO THIS FACILITY (INITIAL ENTRY)

DEFINITION: The initial entry of a county inmate by reason of conviction and sentence to this facility by any of the courts within this county.

PURPOSE:

To collect the number of sentenced admissions (entering the facility in sentenced status) as sentenced by the courts in your county by the most serious offense - felony, misdemeanor, or other offense.

The one most serious offense class upon admission will be reported.

As a reminder, conviction of an attempted offense is automatically decreased by one class category. For example, a convicted Burglary in the third degree is a Class D Felony, but a conviction of Attempted Burglary in the third-degree is a Class E Felony. (One class lower than the original offense category).

1. CONVICTED OF FELONY

Include all county inmates entering the facility by reason of conviction of a felony and sentenced to this facility by any of the courts within this county.

Felonies sentenced to county time are usually (but not exclusively), Class C, D or E felonies.

EXAMPLE:

A Montgomery County female is convicted of D.W.I.(Class E Felony) and Unauthorized use of Motor Vehicle (Class B Misdemeanor) and is sentenced to 60 days. It is her first time (initial entry) into the jail on this arrest. She is carried as 1 convicted felony in this section (sentenced to this facility-initial entry). Upon admission to Montgomery she is subsequently housed out to Herkimer County. Herkimer County will not carry her as a convicted felony on its report. Herkimer counts her as 1 inmate admitted and housed-in for another county. Thus, this female sentenced admission is only counted once -- from the county of origin or the census county.

NOTE: Montgomery County will carry this sentenced admission, as 1 female Felony. (The misdemeanor will not appear anywhere on the annual report form. The most serious offense classification, in this case, felony, takes precedence over the sentenced misdemeanor offense.)

2. CONVICTED OF MISDEMEANOR

Include all county inmates entering the facility by reason of conviction of a misdemeanor and sentenced to this facility by any of the courts within this county.

EXAMPLE:

A person is convicted of Criminal Trespass in the Second Degree (Class A Misdemeanor) and Unlawfully Posting Advertisements (Violation) in Fulton County and is sentenced to 30 days. It is his first time committed to the custody of the sheriff (initial entry) on this incident. He is counted as 1 Sentenced Misdemeanor admission on Fulton’s report. This inmate is subsequently housed out to Montgomery County. Montgomery does not count him as a misdemeanor admission on their report.

NOTE: Fulton County will carry this sentenced admission as 1 male Class A Misdemeanor. (The Violation will not appear anywhere on the annual report form. The most serious offense classification in this case, Misdemeanor, takes precedence over the Violation.)

3. CONVICTED OF OTHER OFFENSES

Include all county inmates entering the facility by reason of conviction of an offense other than a felony or a misdemeanor sentenced to this facility.

Include in this category Violations, Traffic Infractions, Youthful Offenders, and Civil Offenses. These specific categories will be reported as "Other."

B. SENTENCED TO THIS FACILITY STATUS CHANGE

(UNSENTENCED TO SENTENCED)

DEFINITION: The change in status of a county inmate from unsentenced to sentenced by reason of conviction and sentence to this facility by any of the courts of this county. Includes inmates sentenced to time served.

The one most serious offense classification upon sentence is the controlling reason for commitment.

PURPOSE:

To collect on a statewide basis, the number of county inmates who change their status in the facility from unsentenced to sentenced based on a conviction and sentence from the courts in that county.

NOTE: Include inmates sentenced to time served.

EXAMPLE: A county inmate is admitted unsentenced to your facility. On his 25th day in jail, he is convicted and sentenced to 25 days (time served) in the county jail.

Length of sentence to this facility: 25 days.

All sentenced admissions will be carried as "sentenced to this facility."

Inmates whose status changes from unsentenced to sentenced will not be included in the Age, Literacy, Race or Ethnic Origin Tables (found on page 5 of the annual report). The purpose of separating out initial entry sentenced admissions from change of status sentenced admissions is to collect as close as possible the demographics of individuals in jail. In other words, inmate demographics are already recorded on unsentenced inmates and will not be recorded again when their status changes to sentenced.

1. CONVICTED OF FELONY

Include a county inmate who changes status from unsentenced to sentenced by reason of convictiof a felony and is sentenced to this facility by any of the courts of this county.

The most serious offense classification upon sentence is the controlling reason for commitment.

Felonies sentenced to county time are usually, but not exclusively C, D, or E Felonies.

EXAMPLE:

A county inmate is admitted unsentenced to your facility on a charge of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree (Class B Felony). On his 82nd day in jail, he is convicted.and sentenced to one year in the county jail on Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Fourth Degree (Class C Felony).

He is counted as 1 male sentenced to this facility - status change - convicted of a felony.

2. CONVICTED OF A MISDEMEANOR

Include county inmates who change their status from unsentenced to sentenced by reason of conviction of a misdemeanor and are sentenced to this facility by any of the courts of this county.

The most serious offense classification upon sentence is the controlling reason for commitment.

EXAMPLE: A county inmate is admitted unsentenced on a charge of Burglary in the Third Degree (Class D Felony). On his 56th day in jail, he is convicted and sentenced to 180 days on the offense of Criminal Trespass in the Second Degree (Class A Misdemeanor).

He is counted as 1 male sentenced to this facility - status change - convicted of misdemeanor.

3. CONVICTED OF OTHER OFFENSES

Include county inmates who change their status from unsentenced to sentenced by reason of conviction (other than a felony or misdemeanor) and are sentenced to this facility by any of the courts within this county. Include in this category, all sentences on Violations, Traffic Infractions, Civil Offenses, and Youthful Offenders.

The one most serious offense classification upon sentence is the controlling reason for commitment.

D. REMANDED TO THIS FACILITY (BY SECURING ORDER)

DEFINITION: County Admission - (Unsentenced) - The initial entry of a county inmate remanded to this facility by any of the courts of this county. One admission per individual regardless of the number of charges/commitments arising out of the original arrest. (The most serious offense classification is the controlling reason for the commitment, i.e., felony, misdemeanor, etc.

...One person + one arrest = one admission...

EXAMPLE: (Recording transactions on an inmate who receives simultaneous commitments.)

An individual is remanded (unsentenced) to jail for Burglary and Violation of Probation at the same time. Subsequently, he is discharged on the Burglary charge, but is still held for Violation of Probation. He is ultimately discharged on Violation of Probation.

1 county admission ---- 1 county discharge

EXAMPLE:

An individual is remanded (unsentenced) to jail for Burglary. Parole lodges a detainer against same inmate. Parole subsequently withdraws their detainer, but the individual is still being held on Burglary charge. Ultimately the Burglary charge is dismissed.

1 county admission ----- 1 county discharge

If, however, the same individual, having been discharged from this facility, is subsequently remanded to this facility by any of the courts of this county on charges/commitments arising out of the same or a separate arrest, it would be recorded as another admission.

...One person + two separate incarcerations = two admissions...

EXAMPLE: (Recording transactions on an inmate who receives subsequent commitments.)

An individual is remanded (unsentenced) to the jail for Burglary. He is subsequently charged with Violation of Probation, a separate charge.

Do not count him as another admission. If, however, the individual is discharged from the facility and subsequently charged with Violation of Probation, record him as a new admission.

PURPOSE:

To collect the number of your county’s inmates remanded to the custody of the sheriff by the courts within your county (unsentenced).

Do not include any inmates housed in from another county or jurisdiction.

As a reminder, admission of an attempted offense is automatically decreased by one class category. For example, the charge of Burglary in the third degree is a class D Felony, but the charge of Attempted Burglary in the third-degree is a Class E Felony. (One class lower than the original offense category)

1. HELD FOR FELONY OFFENSE

Include all county inmates remanded to this facility whose most serious charge at the time of commitment is a felony.

2. HELD FOR MISDEMEANOR

Include all county inmates remanded to this facility whose most serious charge at the time of commitment is a misdemeanor.

3. HELD FOR OTHER OFFENSES

Include all county inmates remanded to this facility whose most serious charge at the time of commitment is a Violation, Traffic Infraction, Civil Offense or Probation Violation.

(Please note that unsentenced probation violators who are subsequently sentenced, cannot be sentenced probation violators. There is no such offense category. The sentenced reason for commitment must be an offense from the original crime or from a new crime committed.)

E. TOTAL COUNTY INMATE ADMISSIONS THIS YEAR -

Add Item A(4) (Sentenced to this Facility Initial Entry) and Item D(4) (Remanded to this Facility - by securing order (unsentenced).

PURPOSE:

To collect from your county, the total number of admissions as received from the courts within your county. The total number of county admissions will equal as close as possible the number of individuals committed to the custody of the sheriff or corrections department. There will, of course, be exceptions. For instance, an unsentenced inmate who, while still in custody, receives a sentenced commitment on an unrelated charge.

EXAMPLE: (Recording transactions on an unsentenced inmate who, while still in custody, receives a sentenced commitment on an unrelated charge).

An individual is remanded to the jail on a Burglary charge. While still in custody, he is sentenced on a Disorderly Conduct charge for 15 days.

He is discharged on the Burglary charge (transferred by order of court - Item V-A(2) to serve the sentence. The Burglary charge is retained on file as a detainer.

Upon completion of the sentence, if the Burglary charge has not resulted in a release from custody (bail, dismissal, etcetera), he is readmitted on the Burglary charge.

He will, therefore, be admitted three times, discharged three times and have three length of stay terms. This is not any different from an inmate who is bailed on the Burglary, subsequently sentenced on the Disorderly Conduct, serves the sentence and is released and later is remanded on the original Burglary.

ITEM: III. INMATES ADMITTED AND HOUSED FOR OTHER JURISDICTIONS THIS YEAR - HOUSED IN

DEFINITION: Other Admission - (housed in) any inmate admitted to this facility who does not meet the definition of a county inmate, i.e., any inmate who is under the legal custody of some other jurisdiction. (Federal, State, other county, etc.)

PURPOSE:

To collect from each county correctional facility, the number of inmates admitted and housed for other jurisdictions.

1. OTHER COUNTY’S INMATES

Include all inmates housed in from another county in New York State.

2. STATE INMATES

State inmates include parole violators held on a parole violator warrant only. An inmate admitted on a local charge who later has a parole warrant lodged would be recorded as an admission on the local charge only until that charge is disposed of.

Example:

An individual is remanded (unsentenced) to jail for Burglary. Parole lodges a detainer against same inmate. He is subsequently discharged on the Burglary charge but is still being held on Violation of Parole. He is ultimately released from the Parole detainer.

1 county admission ----- 1 county discharge
1 "Housed in" State ----- 1 "Other Than County
Inmate admission Inmate" discharge

TABLE 2: LENGTH OF STAY - COUNTY INMATES

THE LENGTH OF STAY FOR COUNTY INMATES IS BASED ON INMATES DISCHARGED DURING THE YEAR.

Count the actual amount of time each county admission remained in custody on the facility census.

Example: County inmate housed out to another county for 55 days and housed in your facility for 20 days would be recorded as having a length of stay of 75 days.

Do not include any inmates housed in for another county or jurisdiction.

Intermittent sentenced inmate’s length of stay will be determined by the number of days physically in the facility.

Count the actual length of stay for every county inmate discharged during the year. This includes both unsentenced and sentenced time. DO NOT REPORT FRACTIONS OF DAYS. ANY FRACTION OF A DAY IS A DAY.

Example: On his 56th day of unsentenced incarceration, an inmate is sentenced to 180 days. On the 120th day, he is discharged due to expiration of sentence. Length of stay county inmate: 120 days.

Do not include length of stay data for inmates not yet discharged on 12/31. These days will be reported on next year’s report (the year of actual discharge).

The actual length of stay includes all time served in the previous year.

Example: Date of admission is 12/1/98. Date of discharge is 3/31/90. The actual length of stay is 121 days to be reported on 1999's Annual Report. (No length of stay will be reported on the 1998 Annual report).
