Community Corrections is responsible for the supervision of convicted adult felons whom the courts and parole board have placed in the community under a limited, structured state of freedom. The overall goal is to protect the community by helping offenders become law-abiding, contributing citizens. Community Corrections is normally located at the county level of government, either under the administration of county commissioners or sheriffs. In a couple instances, it is administered by the Oregon Department of Corrections.
OACCD Membership consists of the Director of each County Parole and Probation office in the State of Oregon; we meet bi-monthly.
Programs commonly operated within Community Corrections are probation and parole supervision, day reporting, correctional treatment and work release. What is significant about this? In Oregon, there are currently about 16,000 adult offenders on probation supervision and another 19,000 on parole supervision at an average cost of $10 per person per day, as compared with 20,000 incarcerated in jail and prison at approximately $70 per day.
