Who we serve

The OCC has two major programs: 

  • Trial Court Community Service Program (CSP)
  • statewide network of Community Corrections Centers (CCC)

The CSP develops community service projects, monitors participants at project sites, tracks participant work hours, and makes reports of participant progress to the courts via the probation department. The CCCs facilitate intensive supervision by probation, parole and sheriff's departments through integrated services and sanctions including substance abuse treatment, educational opportunities, job development, life skills training, drug and alcohol testing, community service, day reporting and electronic monitoring.
