For the past four decades, the International Community Corrections Association has acted as a voice to challenge various nations when they have acted against reason and pursued anti-crime policies that have significantly increased the number of offenders incarcerated. Although violent crime gains the public’s attention, the vast majority of crime is nonviolent and can be addressed in a variety of cost-effective ways short of long term confinement. Community corrections organizations should continue to provide a strong and reasoned voice to help reduce fear about crime, the use and expansion of community sentencing, residential and work release options.
The International Community Corrections Association takes a leadership role in helping to shape public opinion about crime and community corrections. 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.
Join ICCA, the largest and most diverse community corrections association. We have delegates from six continents and meet every year in an exciting conference called "Doing What Works", where we discuss community corrections policy, best practices, and future initiatives.
