Developmentally Disabled OffendersThere are at least 25,000 people with mental retardation in the nation's prisons, and some studies indicate that the actual number may be twice that. This means that approximately one out of every 20 of the 500,000 prisoners in the United States has mental retardation. Early identification of clients who may have mental retardation is critical to providing appropriate treatment within the criminal justice system. Without knowledgeable advocates, offenders with developmental disabilities may not obtain equal justice. The Developmentally Disabled Offenders program is the only one of its kind in New Jersey that provides alternatives to incarceration on behalf of individuals with developmental disabilities who are defendants in the criminal justice system. We are a clearinghouse for information about offenders with developmental disabilities. The Program serves as a liaison between the criminal justice and human services systems, and monitors the quality of care and service provided to those with developmental disabilities as they move from one system to another. Its continuing challenge is to investigate how the linkages between these two systems can be established, strengthened and maintained. StatewideThe Arc of New JerseyThe Arc of New Jersey
