Alternative Sentencing/Supervision

Community Correctional Centers

Community based facilities that provide supervised living and support services for nonviolent offenders and released inmates who meet specified criteria. Residents may be community sentenced offenders or probation/parole violators placed in the facility for disciplinary sanctions as an alternative to incarceration, work release offenders, offenders owing restitution, offenders who need intensive programming, and/or offenders who have demonstrated positive adjustment while in an institutional setting and need additional support to ease the transition from incarceration to community living. Some facilities may target specific groups of offenders such as women with young children who may remain with their mothers for the duration of their stay while others are structured to accept multiple types of offenders. Residents may be permitted to leave for work, school, or treatment, but are otherwise restricted to the facility. Specific privileges and restrictions depend on the population served. Residence in a community based correctional facility may be imposed as a "stand alone" sentence by the courts, be a condition of supervised release for intermittent confinements or split sentences (a term of imprisonment followed by other, less restrictive sanctions), be used to tighten restrictions on offenders who have violated the conditions of their probation/parole, or provide a transitional setting for offenders selected for placement by a correctional institution at the end of their sentence. Community correctional centers may be in the community or attached to a jail or similar institution, and may be privately operated or operated by a correctional authority.
