If you are inquiring about a CTP participants’ eligibility, DCCC receives referrals from Department of Corrections, when the inmate is eligible to be considered for CTP placement.  Once DCCC receives the referral from the prison system, DCCC will begin the screening process.  All CTP participants are required to be placed into our Residential Work Facility. They shall submit to all testing including urinalysis and pass all drug tests.  They must also agree to abide by all program rules.  They must have a cellular telephone or arrangements must be made to obtain one within a week of their arrival. They will be required to pay a daily supervision fee and pay for all drug tests.  They will be required to find employment and work toward case plan goals.

Once eligibility has been determined, DCCC will contact the Courts and the prison system with the eligibility determination. 

If you have any further questions, you can email Luis Loera at lloera@co.dekalb.in.us .
