Measures 2012

We will document 15,000 prisoners and 2,500 volunteers worshiping together in the jails during 2012.  To do this we will rely on reports by Worship Teams submitted online and through the mail.

In 2012 we documented 23,870 prisoners worshipped with 3,486 volunteers.

We will work to find a way to measure prisoner satisfaction with the Worship Team ministry. (The 1.0 to 5.0 system does not seem to yield helpful results)  After the Worship Teams have departed, trained TJM volunteers will select random Worship Teams and ask 3 brief questions of the prisoners who attended services and record the results.

In 2012 we changed from a 1.0 to 5.0 system to a 3-question interview type system. (What did you like about what the Worship Team did? What do you wish they had done differently? Overall today's service was Not very helpful (1.0) to Very helpful (5.0). The results were pretty much the same. Everything was positive.  Nothing was suggested for improvement.  We wonder if prisoners will pretty much always rate heavily to the very positive.

We will document 2,000 hours of service by members of our Adult Jail Chaplaincy Team resulting in at least 1500 prisoner contacts in 2012.  To do this we will use the sign in book in the chaplain's office at the Justice Center and reports submitted online, through the mail and placed in the bin at the chaplain's office in the Justice Center.   We will also review completed Inmate Request forms.

During 2012 we can document our volunteer chaplains spent 2,293 hours and they made 1,492 chaplaincy contacts in the Hamilton County jail facilities.

We will document that we will have a chaplain on scene within 1.5 hours of being requested for all death notifications.  TJM will record the time of such calls that come to us and will follow up with the chaplain who responded as to the time of their arrival at the facility where they were needed.  The goal is 100%.

Our response time was slightly over 37 minutes on average and we achieved our goal of 100%

For all grief intervention requests, we will have a chaplain respond by the end of the day the request is made. To document the success of the TJM office will record the time of such calls that come to us and will follow up with the chaplain who responded and to the time of their arrival at the facility where they were needed.  The goal is 90 to 95%.

For all grief intervention requests we had a chaplain respond by the end of the day over 95% of the time.

We will score at least 4.5 out of 5.0 on trainings and orientations we offer.

Our average score for all TJM trainings and orientations was 4.77.

We will continue to reach out to surrounding counties to see how we might be helpful to their jail ministry programming.

We continue to reach out to the surrounding county jail ministries. The leadership of the Clermont County jail ministry has stabilized and we made contact again.  The relationship seems cordial enough, but little development beyond that. They have been willing to see prisoners in their facilities that have been referred by TJM, as have other surrounding counties.
