This research examined correctional and community college administrators' perceptions of collaboration and the public value impact of a PSCE partnership through a systems thinking conceptual framework. Through interviews, observations, and document reviews, I determined how these perceptions aligned with the public value of a PSCE partnership. This was a basic qualitative study involving six participants from two public agencies. Findings from this study indicate that administrators recognized:
• Public Safety Realignment legislation contributed to the viability of a PSCE partnership in a county jail system. • Public safety improvements in the county jail system promoted a jail environment to facilitate the success of a PSCE partnership. • Service coordination with jail in-reach services promoted a continuum of services to enhance the PSCE partnership. xi • An improved jail culture has contributed to the collaboration by administrators of the PSCE partnership. • Improved interagency communication has contributed to a better understanding of the missions of both partners. • Promoting correctional best practices has contributed to improving the collection of program data of the PSCE partnership. • Recommendations for practice and for future research are provided.
