What is Community Corrections?
Community Corrections is a system of local boards and programs that provide community placement and supervision as a cost-effective alternative to prison for individuals convicted of less serious felony offenses. These programs also serve individuals on parole or transitioning from prison. Each person admitted to community corrections must meet established criteria and be approved by an appointed board of local officials and citizens. Each of Colorado’s twenty-two judicial districts has a board which contracts with programs to provide rehabilitative services to their clients and to closely supervise and monitor their activities. Boards also undertake related duties including auditing of program performance and client outcome. Community corrections boards and programs are established by legislation and are accountable to the Colorado legislature through the Division of Criminal Justice, Department of Public Safety. Public safety, rehabilitation of offenders and reduction of recidivism are primary goals of the community corrections system. Community corrections placement costs significantly less than incarceration while assuring public safety and preparing individuals for a crime-free lifestyle.
What is CACCB?
The Colorado Association of Community Corrections Boards is an organization that serves and represents board members from all of Colorado’s community corrections boards. The purpose of CACCB is to provide ongoing education and training to board members to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the community corrections system. Members of the organization also interact with elected officials and the public to provide education and to promote the efficacy of community corrections.
