Program Benefits

Benefits of a Community-Based Corrections Program
A community-based corrections program provides a diversion from prison and county jail for offenders of non-violent crimes. It is also more cost effective than incarcerating offenders and it gives the offender, who would otherwise go to jail or prison, the opportunity to receive assistance needed (i.e., substance abuse programs, literacy programs, etc.) to become a productive member of society in his/her own community.

Community agencies receive benefits of free labor with community-based corrections programs. Offenders make a positive contribution to the community rather than becoming a financial burden to taxpayers, and offenders are forced to take responsibility for their actions.
