WASHINGTON, DC — The National Association of Counties (NACo) and the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA) recently announced the formation of a joint task force to reduce jail inmate recidivism through continuity of health care services.Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, who has been a leading voice in both the local and national discussions regarding the intersection of behavioral health and the criminal justice system, has been selected to serve on the task force.The task force, made up of NACo and NSA members representing county leaders, law enforcement, judges, prosecutors, public defenders, behavioral health and veterans’ services, will explore the impacts of the national mental and behavioral health crisis and the Medicaid Inmate Exclusion Policy (MIEP), which strips federal health and veterans’ benefits from individuals upon admission to jail – not upon conviction – leading to increased recidivism.“Stripping federal health benefits from those jailed but not convicted, and are presumed innocent, is a violation of their constitutional rights,” said NACo Executive Director Matthew Chase. “By providing continuity of health care to those most in need, counties can help break the cycle of recidivism exacerbated by untreated physical and mental illnesses and substance use disorders.”“This task force will work tirelessly to remove the roadblocks people face in getting the care they need,” said NSA Executive Director and CEO Jonathan Thompson. “These experienced people will fix this problem and help the thousands of mentally ill citizens trapped in Americas’ jail without the proper care.” Members of the new task force will explore the impacts of existing federal policies on recidivism and health outcomes of local jail inmates. A focus will be placed on those individuals suffering from mental health, substance use disorders and/or other chronic health illnesses.An issue plaguing sheriffs and jails throughout the United States is that of the increasing number of inmates with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Due to the lack of community resources, jails have become the de-facto mental health hospitals and treatment facilities and have assumed the liability as well. Across the nation, there is growing reliance on local jails to serve as “one-stop” treatment centers for these afflictions. Under current law, those who can afford bail keep their health care while those unable to pay – who are most susceptible to illness – face a gap in coverage. Research shows gaps in coverage lead to higher rates of recidivism resulting in over-incarceration.The double standard created by MIEP is putting undue strain on local judicial, law enforcement, public safety and human services systems leading to increased health care costs and poorer health outcomes. Having access to federal health benefits for non-convicted individuals would allow for improved coordination of care, while decreasing short-term costs to local taxpayers and long-term costs to the federal government.The suspension of federal benefits for pre-trial detainees not only presents constitutional challenges but also unjustly increases the fiscal impact on sheriffs and counties to pay for needed medical and mental health care, that but for their incarceration, the federal government would cover. These monies, if reinstated, would increase sheriffs’ ability to provide additional programming and resources to inmates and allow for a smoother transition into communities for the inmate without a lapse in benefits and medical care.Read more about the need to reinstate federal health care benefits for non-convicted justice-involved individuals here.Members of the Task Force:Co-Chair: Hon.

Celebrating the spirit of colour orange, Camera Unlimited has brought its new photography exhibition titled Tangerine Tales to the Capital.

The exhibition features photographs by Ahmed Firoz, Ambika Sethi, Dinesh Sethi, Krishan Sharma, Lubna Sen, Marta Martinez, Nitin Arjun, Rajesh Ramakrishnan, Rohit Kumar, Shilpi Choudhuri, Shivani Punia and Shoba Jolly.

From a peeling orange wall depicting disturbed calmness to the explosion of vibrant expressions and colours of festival Holi, from abstracts in still life to surreal frames in motion, sunrise to sunset, the contradictions in the photographs may be obvious yet they all are tied by the common thread of colour – orange.The colour orange means different things to each of us. For some it may be the burst of energy, the passion of a glowing fire, while some associate it with the calmness of a sadhu’s robe and symbol of the autumn leaves. All the photographs on display are printed on Canvas and are framed in an identical manner which ensures that each of the artwork stands out and mark it’s impression on visitors.When: Till 24 NovemberWhere: Arpana Caur Academy of Fine Arts & Literature
