Director of Judiciary’s Intensive Supervision Program Wins National Award

Harvey M. Goldstein, director of the Judiciary’s Intensive Supervision Program (ISP), has been named the recipient of the American Probation and Parole Association’s Joe Kegans Award for Victim Services in Probation and Parole.

The award is bestowed annually to honor an individual whose work in community corrections has provided exemplary services to victims of crime.

“ISP is an effective alternative to incarceration that has proven remarkably successful at putting clients on the path to productivity and personal responsibility. We congratulate Harvey on this well-earned recognition,” said Judge Glenn A. Grant, acting administrative director of the courts.

ISP is a component of the probation services division of the New Jersey Judiciary. ISP provides an opportunity for a carefully selected population of offenders to be released from state prison into the community under a rigorous form of community supervision. ISP emphasizes control, monitoring, surveillance, treatment and the collection of court-imposed financial obligations.

As director, Goldstein is responsible for the monitoring of nearly 1,400 participants in the program.

Goldstein has advocated for victims’ rights by ensuring that victims receive notification of upcoming hearing dates; that victims are given the opportunity to provide input to the resentencing panel; and that victims are invited to appear at initial and follow-up sentencings.

ISP also requires offenders to pay restitution to their victims. Offenders are not released from the program without full payment or the establishment of a payment plan.

“Our success in the area of victim restitution is largely due to the support and follow-up of the resentencing panel judges and the dedication and hard work of our staff,” Goldstein said.

ISP has collected more than $8.9 million in victim restitution payments since its inception in 1983. In addition, Goldstein has served as chairman of the board and as president of the APPA, and he created the APPA Victim’s Issues Committee.

A 35-year veteran of probation services, Goldstein has served as the director of ISP since 1997. He holds a bachelor’s degree from City College of New York and a master’s degree in criminal justice from the State University of New York at Albany
