Service excellence awards given to Corizon Health release planners

Jacqueline Miller (L) and Pamela St. Pierre (R)

The Community Corrections Bureau of the Arizona Department of Corrections (ADC) recently presented two Corizon Health team members with “Excellent Service Awards” as a token of appreciation for the hard work they do, as well as for the support they provide to the ADC and offenders. The Community Corrections Bureau is responsible for community based supervision of offenders upon their release.

Jacqueline Miller and Pamela St. Pierre are the only two release planners for the entire state, and Community Corrections works closely with them to improve the reentry process for high need medical/mental health offenders by increasing available opportunities for offenders to connect to services in their local communities. Their high degree of professionalism, communication and teamwork with ADC staff is key to the continued development of improved release plans for high need offenders, thus contributing to one of the overall goals of Corizon Health – reducing recidivism. Without the hard work and dedication of Jacqueline and Pamela, the reentry process would be much more difficult and prove to be a major barrier to successful reintegration.
