McLean County Jail

The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) regularly provides Technical Assistance to respond directly to the needs, problems, and individual requirements of state and local correctional agencies.

This article provides a brief look at an NIC assessment of how the McLean County Jail handles mentally ill inmates. It also links to an excellent podcast with NIC Consultants Ken Ray and Mark Goldman and Sheriff Mike Emery. During this interview various topics were discussed such as: why NIC is there; what is the role of the consultants; and health care services for the mentally ill.
