Community Corrections

The Vision of DeKalb County Community Corrections is to improve the lives of local offenders to reduce the chance of future recidivism.

Our mission is to increase public safety by reducing recidivism and encouraging participants to be productive community members through cost savings and enhanced coordination of local adult and juvenile justice systems.

Our Values:

D-irect offenders by motivating

C-onnect to appropriate resources

C-ultivate behavioral change

C-haracter development

Our Motto:

Together we achieve!

Our agencies goals are as follows;

1) To increase community awareness and understanding regarding the benefits and services which community corrections provides by offering programs that provide alternative intermediate sanctions but do not compromise the safety of the community;

2) To increase community support and/or involvement by promoting the development of working relationships with existing and active community service organizations through community service restitution projects within our jurisdiction;

3) To decrease non-compliance and recidivism among incarcerated offenders by pro-actively assisting local penal facilities with the transition of inmates; and

4) To enhance current components and create new components designed to reduce recidivism of adult offenders with the implementation of effective intervention practices that reduce identified risk factors and targets specific criminogenic needs.
