Joint Comprehensive Assessment Plan (J-CAP)
J-CAP is a four-part electronic assessment completed by staff to aid in case management and discharge planning practices. The four parts are: Intake Assessment, Progress Review, Pre-release Interview and Discharge Plan. J-CAP was developed as an electronic system that allows the NJDOC to enter, update and review inmate information in an electronic data bank. The implementation of J-CAP across the state will standardize many social service practices and forms and will assist in the coordination of information shared between institutional departments and across state agencies. J-CAP was implemented in 2009 statewide.
