Health and Community Services
The Office of Community Corrections supervises offenders who have been released from jail by the court, pending final disposition of their case. Depending upon conditions imposed by the Court and the offender's particular circumstances, supervision may include alcohol monitoring, curfew monitoring and GPS monitoring, together with drug testing and frequent contact with a case manager. The Office also provides behavioral training modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Training (CBT), Moral Reconation Training (MRT), Domestic Violence training for offenders, Trauma Recovery and Intervention Program, and CBT-based Theft Diversion. OCC operates with a combination of state grant and fee-generated monies. The goal of OCC is to reduce the economic burden of incarceration and increase the chances for rehabilitation.
