Community Corrections

The St. Joseph County Community Corrections Advisory Board (CCAB) is comprised of criminal justice professionals, substance abuse treatment providers, community members, and other service organization representatives. It oversees programming that serves as jail alternatives, for the purposes of reducing the jail population, saving money, and making the community safer for all residents. The CCAB is responsible for programs funded by the Michigan Department of Corrections, Office of Community Corrections through Public Act 511 (PA511), which are intended to reduce prison commitment rates and recidivism, or reoffending. There are also non-PA511 funded programming as part of St. Joseph County Community Corrections. Details on the specific programs may be found in the Bench Guide section of this site.
