Competency Evaluation

Competency Evaluation & Return to Competency


As part of criminal proceedings Correctional Health Services (CHS), Competency Evaluation (CEP), and Restoration to Competency Teams (RTC) may be ordered by the court to evaluate, educate and restore a defendant to competency.

Determining Status


Forensic Psychologists, Forensic Restoration Specialists, and a Psychometrist work closely with defendants to determine the status of competency and inform the Court of that status.

CHS, CEP, and RTC staff are not the same as CHS Mental Health staff in that this team is court appointed and are not providing mental health care.
