Community Corrections

Community Corrections works system-wide to facilitate the most efficient, effective use of Ingham County corrections resources; maintain safe, cost efficient community-based correctional programs that provide appropriate treatment and sanction options; and to develop and implement public education and training efforts to increase community awareness and provide training opportunities for local criminal justice professionals.
