Objective: Implement OJJDP Gang Model. 2: Establish a GFI Prevention & Intervention Service Network. Objective: Develop service partnerships to directly address the gang issues within the City of Yakima. 3: Establish a data and research analysis process to keep the City Council, City Manager and GFI Committee aware of gang trends and GFI impact on an on- going basis. Objective: GFI Coordination & Evaluation Services. 4: Build capacity in gang prevention and intervention programs /strategies. Objective: Youth & Family Development Centers. 5: Develop a sustainable funding strategy to support implementation efforts. Objective: Youth & Family Development Fund. continued GFI Vision Statement: The vision of the GFI is to create a safe, peaceful, gang free community resulting in a high quality of life for our families.

City of Yakima GFI Implementation Plan 2013 Page 6 Social Interventions Strategy: Youth Development [Multidisciplinary] Team The Youth Development Team is at the core of the OJJDP Comprehensive Gang Model [Intervention] and plays a key role in identifying and delivering intervention and prevention services. This team is composed of a multidisciplinary group of professionals from the fields of law enforcement, probation, outreach, education, and social services, who work together to case manage the intervention targets of the action plan and to identify additional prevention, intervention, and suppression activities needed in the target communities. Participation on the Youth Development Team can increase the effectiveness of each agency's efforts, reduce duplication of services, increase access to needed services, and ensure that gang members are held accountable for their actions. By identifying and providing concentrated services to those within the gang culture, the team's activities will also serve to improve the quality of life for all residents of Yakima by reducing gang crime and improving community safety. t.7..

City of Yakima GFI Implementation Plan 2013 Page 7 Social Interventions Strategy: Outreach Outreach activities within the OJJDP Comprehensive Gang Model play a critical role. The primary focus of the outreach services is to build an ongoing and pro - social relationship with youth and families while linking them to appropriate services. Targeted outreach will be established to focus on core gang involved youth, with special capacity to connect pre - adjudication and in the local community setting. General outreach activities such as recreation and arts, will be carefully integrated with existing and new prevention services not to become a primary focus, but rather a means to build relationships with clients and provide access to essential resources and services.

It is important that team members create a protocol for screening and assessing new clients. Outreach workers present information about prospective youth to the team, outlining how each youth meets the screening criteria. The team members can then come to consensus about whether a youth is suitable for case management. A screening team, including outreach workers and members of the Youth Development Team, should meet regularly to review the referral materials that have come in. The screening process may indicate the need to refer the youth to crisis services. Upon gathering all information and determining eligibility based on the established criteria, the screening team will make a determination. They will also take into consideration the ability of the program to serve the family based on current caseloads. A waiting list could be created in the future if we reach capacity. Referral is an informal, ongoing process for reviewing information related to youth who show signs of being at risk of gang involvement or have been determined to be gang involved. The referral process includes Youth Development Team review of screening and other information on referred youth, and the Teams decision about whether to add the youth to the caseload. FY13 GFI Proposed Screening & Referral Service Partnership Yakima Police Activities League: Utilization of the Washington Assessment of Risk and Needs of Students to determine placement within the GRIP framework. Program Output: 50 youth screened with WARNS by December 31, 2013, Refer 50 youth by December 31, 2013. Outcome: Lowered risk of gang involvement among participating youth.

Program Output: 30 youth screened with WARNS by December 31, 2013, Refer 30 youth by December 31, 2013. Outcome: Lowered risk of gang involvement among participating youth. PERFORMANCE MEASURES 2012 2013 Complete WARNS screening 0 80 Complete referrals to GFI partner services 0 80 City of Yakima GFI Implementation Plan 2013 Page 9 Social Interventions Strategy: Individual Needs Assessment An individual needs assessment instrument should be developed to ascertain the status of each client when he is accepted into the project. The assessment instrument should be used for diagnosis, placement, and treatment planning and applicable in a variety of settings (i.e., school, jail, social service). Individual Needs Assessment targets: • Client goals, abilities, talents, and desires. • Family situation and structure. • Gang involvement of family members. • Other family issues. • Criminal history. • Gang history (and gang affiliation). • School history. • Gang climate in the client's neighborhood. • Substance abuse or mental health issues. • History of abuse or neglect. • Client's employment history and skill levels. • Special circumstances. • Agencies that are currently serving the client. • Possible safety issues involving the client. • Court requirements. FY13 GFI Proposed Screening & Referral Service Partnership Yakima Police Activities League: Use INA to diagnose, place, and plan treatment for high risk youth. Program Output: 30 youth INA's by December 31, 2013, 30 behavior modification plans by December 31, 2013. Outcome: Lowered risk of gang involvement among participating youth. PERFORMANCE MEASURES 2012 2013 Complete 30 INA's 0 30 Complete 30 Behavior Modification Plans 0 30 City of Yakima GFI Implementation Plan 2013 Page 10 Social Interventions Strategy: Behavioral & Family Interventions Behavioral interventions target individual gang members and youth at high risk of being involved with gangs. GFI Partners will apply evidence -based interventions to help youth learn and experience positive alternatives. Services provided include case management and individual /family counseling with a licensed /registered therapist. One of the "Evidence Based Practices" recommended by the OJJDP is Multi- Systemic Therapy (MST) which is considered the cornerstone of behavioral interventions for gang involved youth. The goal of MST is to reduce youth criminal activity and antisocial behaviors and to achieve these outcomes at a cost savings by decreasing rates of (re)incarceration and out -of -home placement. MST aims to achieve these goals by empowering youth and parents with the skills and resources needed to independently address these difficulties and cope with their complex environmental and social problems. Services engage the full system of the adolescents life starting with the parents (caregivers). Parents and caregivers are brought into the process and family members collaborate with MST therapists in designing a treatment plan. What makes MST unique is the 'high intensity' treatment. Unlike many other treatment models where the troubled youth sees a therapist at a clinic once a week, MST therapists go to the youth's home, school and community. MST has high rates of treatment completion because therapists provide treatment in the families' homes and other community settings. Going to the home overcomes the high dropout rates of other treatments because caregivers often have trouble getting families to appointments. FY13 GFI Proposed Behavioral & Family Support Service Partnership TBD: Engaging 10 high risk youth in evidence -based behavioral intervention and family support services. Program Output: 10 youth by December 31, 2013. Outcome: TBD PERFORMANCE MEASURES 2012 2013 Number of youth completing behavioral intervention 0 10 Number of families completing family support services 0 10 City of Yakima GFI Implementation Plan 2013 Page 11 Suppression Strategy: Targeted Emphasis Patrols The Steering Committee recommends the City of Yakima expand the Targeted Emphasis Patrols as they serve to increase visibility and awareness that the police are in the area and prepared to act. Targeted Emphasis Patrols can be character- ized as an increase in either the certainty or severity of official police reaction to gang activity in a specific area. Targeted Emphasis Patrols are proactive and have been effective in addressing general crime problems in addition to the gang targets in and around Yakima. With the recently established Yakima County Gang Court, a multiagency approach to targeting current gang members with suppression measures while also targeting entire gangs with police suppression is now possible. Enhanced coordination can be achieved through Targeted Enforcement Teams consisting of gang unit investigators, a probation officer, a deputy district attorney, and a district attorney investigator. The teams will work together to selectively incarcerate the most violent and repeat older gang offenders in the most violent gangs, enforce probation controls on younger, less violent gang offenders, and arrest gang leaders in "hot spots" of gang activity. Once offenders are identified, they are monitored closely for new offenses and undergo intensive supervision when on probation for violation of probation terms and conditions.

Coordination services work to establish and maintain linkages between public and private partnerships ensuring effective utilization of resources directed toward the suppression, intervention and prevention objectives. The coordination services with significant involvement from the GFI Advisory Group lead the partnership development activities over the past five months including identifying and recruiting service providers, facilitating the GFI Provider Orientation event held on August 1, 2012, and guiding the procurement process which resulted in four GFI services expansions and enhancements and four partnership agreement recommendations for City Council consideration. The proposed agreements will be discussed in detail at the November 27th Study Session. Services provided under the coordination agreement also include meeting facilitation, website development and maintenance, and partner management. Coordination services not only coordinate current resources to better align them with the GFI anti -gang mission but also provide technical support aimed at enhancing service delivery through the application of evidence based programs and activities. These activities are ongoing. In addition, development services (identifying and securing the necessary resources in support of plan implementation) are being conducted. Development is critical to the long term sustainability of the GFI initiative.

The Fund, totaling $140,000, represents 7% of the Council authorized utility tax increase approved on December 6, 2011. The Council's action supports the addition of 12 police officers along with the YFD Fund from the estimated $2,000,000 in new revenue generated from the tax. The purpose of the Fund is to address criminal street gangs by helping to ensure that our youth avoid gang membership and activities, as well as other future criminal behavior by expanding critical intervention and prevention services into our areas of greatest need. It is the intent to leverage local resources to support programs and activities that provide youth and families with the effective tools they need to resist criminal street gangs. 2013 Youth & Family Development Fund Leverage City Investment — $140,000 Projected Partner Investments— $479,500 State & Federal Support— $65,628 ROI = 3.8:1 PERFORMANCE MEASURES 2012 2013 2014 [Partner Investment - I $280,000 $560,000 .Page 15 City of Yakima GFI Implementation Plan 2013 Organizational Change & Development Strategy: Gang Resistance & Intervention Framework A fully integrated behavioral health model is required in order to effectively intervene in the gang problem. This would include a partnership among schools, law enforcement, social and behavioral health services and outreach agencies. It is especially critical that outreach agencies work collaboratively with referral based agencies. Collaboration, rather than coordination, raises the partnership to a level of equal responsibility and advisement of recommended programs. Coordination alone often results in compartmentalizing each agency's role and leaves no one with a global understanding of the problem.

The project has identified four key partners: City of Yakima, Yakima School District, ESD105, and Yakima County Juvenile Court. The project is designed to expand and enhance existing truancy support mechanisms such as Education Advocates (ESD105), Family Support Specialists (YSD), Case Trackers (Juvenile Court) and Case Managers (Juvenile Court). The workgroup has been using the Family Truancy Intervention Program as the evidence -based model with one modification. The modification is the addition of Cultural Advocates to address family readiness factors and bridge the cultural gap between the school and family. The workgroup is finalizing the program design and will be conducting vigorous development (fund raising) activities in 2013. The workgroup met on June 5, June 26, July 10, July 31, and August 21. *The Yakima Truancy Project is not a truancy center concept but rather a Truancy services cooperative effort between key resources.
