"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

More on the continuing issue of the Jackson County Community Corrections and Court Referral, video and significant violations of policies, conflicts of interest and evidence of Failed Quality Assurances Programs regarding Community Corrections and Court Referral drug testing protocols and documents submitted to the District Attorney for a Motion before the Jackson County Courts. 

Policy Regarding Drug Testing
Documents acquired via County Commission Documents Request previously refused by Community Corrections and Court Referral.
This policy indicates that the testing may be challenged by requesting a confirmation test be performed if the client/defendant requests the test. This would mean that the agency would have to notify the client/defendant if there was a positive test. There are instances where one or more client(s)/defendant(s) were never notified of a positive test or given the opportunity to challenge erroneous information which resulted in cancellation of probation after a months worth of Amended Motions and errors. Errors which were based on erroneous entries or false information as stated on motion documents before the court. This also demonstrates a failed Quality Assurance Program to insure there are no erroneous tests, scheduling errors, or violations of policies-standards and protocols resulting in problematic/erroneous court document entries.

Policy Regarding Conflicts of Interest
( Expand viewing -  click on the image.)
This policy states, "...agents representing the Board will have no financial interest direct or indirect which would conflict with services to the Board..." The Executive Director receives lease payments on the Community Corrections property which he owns, he benefits from his position as property owner as the Executive Director of the non-profit corporation. At least two Board member's profit from their vote or participation in decision making on the Board as they are executives and/or owner in the drug testing company and counseling service non profit organization.

Update, December 16, 2015 - Threats on Face Book from Community Corrections and Court Referral Staff
This is a copy of Face Book postings from their organizational page which appears to violate their personnel policy.Threats from the Jackson County Community Corrections and Court Referral Face Book site on December 15, 2015. Link - https://www.facebook.com/JacksonCountyCourtReferralAndCommunityCorrections/info/?tab=overview

 Court Referral - Community Corrections, quote: December 15, 2015, 23 comments - "Jackson County Court Referral and Community Corrections Also. This is my page. I made this page for the convenience of my clients so that they would not have to call the number and getting a busy signal. If it becomes a page of a lot of negative comments, I will shut it down. Thank you." This may be described as misconduct, per their personnel handbook guidelines as it brings discredit on the organization. 

Another violation of their policy, referring to the video regarding - Jackson County Court Referral and Community Corrections at this link - http://arklite.blogspot.com/2015/12/jackson-county-commission-regular.html  Quote - from an official of the Jackson County Court Referral and Community Corrections - "Lol. Is that video all you've got. A video from a guy that doesn't know what he's talking about. Good luck. " (referring to me and the enclosed video)  Page 5 paragraph 1b in the Jackson County Community Corrections and Court Referral Inc. Handbook will cover this employees misconduct, "refraining from offensive and undesirable conduct which is not in the best interests of the organization."
