During the pre-parole phase of the RMO program, Lancaster County Adult Probation and Parole Services (APPS) uses the Level of Service Inventory (LSI-R) to determine risk level and need areas, to facilitate intervention recommendations, and to inform case status which is one part of the admission criteria to the program. In addition, the Pre-Parole Unit of the Lancaster County Adult Probation and Parole Services arranges for drug and alcohol assessment, evaluation of the person's vocational knowledge and skills, and a determination of the individual's need for personal identification using RMO resources.
Before release, offenders who complete the pre-parole activities are referred to the RMO by the Pre-Parole Unit based on their LSI-R assessment, their completion of the assessment tools described above, and their expressed commitment to the program. The RMO assigns a Community Resource Coordinator from one of the organizations contracted by the RMO to provide services. The Community Resource Coordinator (CRC) works with the client to develop a Service Plan for the individual.
