Liaison - Judiciary, State Attorney, Public Defender, Law Enforcement

The Board of County Commissioners, at the request of the Criminal Justice Coordinating Committee (CJCC), facilitates the application process to establish a list of diverse and qualified service providers (e.g., private for-profit and/or not-for-profit agencies, or professionals in private practice). Providers will deliver outcome-based, comprehensive, and consistent services to defendants that have been court-ordered to classes in anger management, victim awareness, anti-theft, consequences of writing worthless checks, batterers’ intervention, driving under the influence (DUI), driving while license suspended or revoked (DWLSR), and/or vehicle immobilization. Based on the applications received, a list of qualified and approved service providers will be developed and provided to individuals required to complete various educational court-ordered programs.

Applications for new providers seeking to be added to the Provider List will be available semi-annually in April and October of each year. Applications will be available beginning on the first of the month and must be submitted to the Probation Division no later than the last business day of the month. The application packet may be downloaded from the links below or picked up at the Office of Intervention and Detention Alternatives. 

Please note: The link to access the application will only be available from April 1 through May 1 and October 1 through November 1. The completed provider application will only be accepted in April and October of each year.

Approved qualified providers will remain on the active list for a period of three, one-year terms absent any proof that may result in disqualification. A provider shall notify the Intervention and Alternatives Director within five calendar days in the event of loss of license or certification, canceling six or more sessions in a six-month period, or criminal charges brought against a provider or key personnel. The CJCC, or designated subcommittee, shall evaluate any such actions to consider disqualification determination on a case-by-case basis.

Applications will be screened and the CJCC, or a designated subcommittee, will consider and approve applications for those providers that will deliver services in the most cost-effective manner to be placed on the Provider List. All providers, including any current providers, must apply and be approved before being placed on the Provider List. Those providers approved through this process will receive court-ordered referrals thereafter. However, the court reserves the right to utilize any service provider it deems in the best interest of the justice system. The CJCC and Leon County reserve the right to call for re-application, change the process, remove providers for due cause, or make other modifications to meet the needs of the justice system.
Providers may apply for one or more service areas; however, a separate application packet as defined herein is required for each area of interest. The service areas are:

  • Anger Management
  • Victim Awareness, Anti-Theft
  • Consequences of Writing Worthless Checks
  • Batterer's Intervention; Driving Under the Influence
  • Driving While Licenses Suspended or Revoked
  • Vehicle Immobilization

These services should be designed to assist the Board of County Commissioners to achieve a long-range goal of decreasing crime and criminal justice involvement.

If you are interested in submitting your application for services, please return to our website in April and October, download the form, and submit by the deadlines noted within the packet.
