The Division of Community Corrections is responsible for managing offenders who are placed in community corrections facilities and offenders under probation and parole supervision. The Division is a multi-faceted, multi-functional, essential component of the Department of Corrections.
The division has a significant role in meeting the mission of the Department of Corrections. Reducing the rate of recidivism, parole revocation and the cost to incarcerate are core functions of this division. These functions are accomplished through various evidenced-based programs and services provided to the offenders as they enter and exit our correctional system.
Important function within our division is to provide, when appropriate, alternatives to incarceration through our diversion program initiatives and reentry services.
The reentry process helps prepare offenders to make a safe transition from incarceration to the community and enhances public safety. When offenders return to their respective communities without re-offending, communities are safer, and the investment of correctional resources has yielded positive results. When formerly incarcerated or supervised persons become productive members of society, working to support their families and paying taxes, the community benefits, Community Corrections has served its purpose, and everyone wins.
None of this could be possible without the dedication and commitment of Community Corrections staff who continually meet the daily challenges of offering viable alternatives to incarceration for offenders at various stages of the criminal justice process.
