WCUP Community Corrections Program

The Community Corrections Program provides local Circuit and District Courts with community-based sentencing alternatives, and operates under the guidance of the WCUP Community Corrections Advisory Board and the supervision of State of Michigan’s Reentry Division – Office of Community Corrections. When non-violent offenders are sentenced to intensive supervision, substance abuse treatment, cognitive behavior programming or evidence based practice programs, the daily county jail population is reduced and the degree of recidivism (re-offending) is substantially reduced. Any available space that is then freed up from the above mentioned programs allows the counties and State to house the less-violent, prison-bound offenders deemed suitable for incarceration within the local county jail. As prison is the most expensive sentencing option, the Community Corrections Program saves State dollars when offenders are housed in local jails as opposed to prisons.
