  ANSWER  

An applicant must submit the following information in its SWBPI profile for each quarter it is requesting reimbursement of SWBPI funds:

  • Detention Per Diem Rate: Publicized per diem rate of the jurisdiction jail facility. This figure is the per-day cost the jurisdiction would charge an outside jurisdiction to house inmates in its jails.
  • Total Felony Cases: The number of all felony cases prosecuted and resolved during the reporting period in the jurisdiction. This number should include federally declined as well as regular, resolved felony cases.
  • Total Misdemeanor Cases: The number of all misdemeanor cases prosecuted and resolved during the reporting period in the jurisdiction. This number should include federally declined as well as regular, resolved misdemeanor cases.

For each prosecution case submitted for SWBPI funds, the jurisdiction must provide the following information:

  • Docket or Case Number.
  • Defendant's Last Name.
  • Defendant's First Name.
  • Defendant's Middle Initial, if known.
  • Referring Federal Agency.
  • Referred Date.

  • Resolved Date.

For each detention case submitted for SWBPI funds, the jurisdiction must provide the following information:
