ICCA represents over 1,500 community corrections programs. ICCA member agencies operate community-based programs serving all stages of the corrections continuum. ICCA members work in the private sector and at all levels of government and, thus, their operations are flexible and broad-based in their approach to community corrections.
The mission of community corrections is to protect public safety; supervise offenders in community-based settings that are in close proximinity to the homes of the clients and families being served; permit offenders to work and participate in needed treatment services; and provide opportunities for positive behavioral change in themselves and their families. It is a generally accepted principle that inmates should be gradually transitioned to society upon release from prison to reduce their likelihood of returning to a life of crime.
