 This position serves as a first-line professional manager of nonprofessional positions in a complex work area. This position works within general methods and procedures and exercises considerable independent judgment to apply guidelines pertaining to the provision of forensic services. The position functions with minimal supervision and must be prepared to interpret mental health code, hospital policy, and SHA procedures as they relate to forensic services. This position will recommend procedures for the effective operation of forensic services to respond to changing service demands, departmental policy, and legal requirements. This position requires frequent, significant interaction with attorneys and courts typically related to addressing questions and resolving problems related to forensic process. The position provides oversight of the provision of forensic services which have a major impact on the mission of the CFP and SHA, which may receive statewide media and political attention and have a major consequence of error. This position will select and assign staff, review, and audit staff performance across three classifications, and provide the necessary training and consultation required to ensure the quality and timely provision of forensic services. Based on departmental needs and priorities, the manager may also occasionally perform any task assigned to subordinate staff and other related work as assigned.
