Community corrections provides a wide range of community supervision and treatment services for referring agencies. Today's community corrections sytems offer a graduated system of supervision options for offenders within community settins for those poised to re-enter society. Additionally, community corrections provide a graduated system of support and treatment services that provide offenders the opportunity for positive behavioral change.
To be effective, community corrections systems and services must be part of a jurisdiction's sentencing structure and system principles, and operate within a policy framework that guides the use and development of individual community programs and services.
Where sentencing guidelines are developed, they should ensure that non-violent offenders are presumptively selected for community corrections sentences.
