What is the INSOMM Program?
The Indiana Sex Offender Management and Monitoring (INSOMM) Program is an innovative program that invites collaboration between public and private sector groups across the state of Indiana with the goal of reducing sexual violence and sex offenses.
The INSOMM Program provides special treatment programming to adult and juvenile sex offenders committed to the Indiana Department of Correction. Additionally, the INSOMM Program utilizes a Containment Model to provide maximum protection to the public while sex offenders are under parole supervision in the community.
A Brief Overview of the INSOMM Program:
The INSOMM Program provides a continuum of programs and supervision to INSOMM Target Offenders.
- Phase I, Assessment & Orientation, assesses each sex offender for their risk to commit new crimes.
- Phase II provides sex offender specific treatment and psycho-educational programming to incarcerated offenders, requires them to take responsibility for their offenses, and introduces the need for sex-offender specific treatment after release to the community. The goal of Phase II is to reduce the risk and likelihood of re-offending.
- Sex offender specific re-entry programming is provided to sex offenders prior to their release from IDOC facilities. This programming focuses, among other topics, on informing offenders of their parole stipulations and registration requirements.
- Post-release supervision in Phase III follows up where Phase II leaves off by providing specialized, intensive community treatment and polygraph examinations utilizing the containment approach within specialized parole stipulations.
The Benefits of the INSOMM Program:
- The INSOMM Program is victim-focused and specially designed to manage an offender population that poses a serious threat to public safety.
- The INSOMM Program has established a network of specialized and credentialed community treatment and polygraph providers throughout Indiana available to anyone seeking sex-offender related services.
- Multi-agency collaboration is emphasized. Releases of information and limited confidentiality permit communication between agencies and professionals responsible for supervision of paroled INSOMM Program offenders.
