This handbook is intended as a guide for judges and other court
officials in selecting programs and services as alternatives to
incarceration for felony offenders. In it you will find information on
Office of Community Corrections (OCC) eligibility criteria,
program descriptions, and contact information.

A section on programs and services provided at the Kent County
Correctional Facility (KCCF) is also included in this handbook.
Although most of the programs at KCCF are not funded by Kent
County Office of Community Corrections (KCOCC), one goal of
KCOCC is to reduce prison and jail commitments and this can be
accomplished by referring eligible offenders into rehabilitative
programming offered through KCCF.




                                           5
                          OVERVIEW

The Kent County Office of Community Corrections (KCOCC) seeks
to reduce state prison commitments; prevent overcrowding at the
Kent County Correctional Facility (KCCF); and protect public
safety by diverting low risk, non-violent felony offenders into
rehabilitative programming. KCOCC advocates the effective use of
sentencing options that include combined jail and probation terms
coupled with rehabilitative programming rather than prison or
straight jail dispositions for eligible offenders. Funded by grant
monies obtained from the Michigan Department of Corrections,
KCOCC provides funding for rehabilitative programming that seeks
to instill offenders with the cognitive thinking skills necessary to
modify the behavior that has led to their continued involvement
within the criminal justice system.

A variety of programming options are funded through KCOCC.
These services range from community service, substance abuse
treatment, day reporting, vocational education and employment,
pretrial supervision, and mental health counseling. This diversity of
services addresses a number of offender needs including the
building of new cognitive thinking skills that are necessary to avoid
recidivistic behavior; learning needed skills in order to obtain and
retain employment; and programming that enables offenders to
overcome the barriers to a crime-free lifestyle that are erected by
continued and unchecked substance abuse.

                      P.A. 511 OVERVIEW

Public Act 511
P.A. 511, also known as the Community Corrections Act, was
established in 1988 to provide funds to local governments to
develop community corrections programs. The purpose is to
increase the range of sanctions and services available for non-violent
felony offenders who would otherwise be incarcerated in state
prisons or local county jails.

How the Act works
Funding for community corrections programming is provided
through grants awarded by the State Community Corrections
Advisory Board (MCCAB) to local county governments. In order to
apply funding, local Community Corrections Advisory Boards
(CCAB) must complete a yearly Comprehensive Corrections Plan
and grant application which is the primary vehicle for funding
requests. Programs seeking funding must meet the criteria
established by the local boards to reduce or curb commitments to
state prisons and to increase the appropriate utilization of local jails.

P.A. 511 Priorities
Awarded funds for P.A. 511 programming seek to address a number
of priorities. These priorities include:

 • Reducing prison commitment rates within each county.
 • Effective utilization of available jail bed space within the Kent
   County Correctional Facility
 • Building and encouraging stakeholder involvement in the
   development of the comprehensive community corrections plan.
 • Prioritizing offenders with higher levels of risk and need for
   programming that is grounded in evidence-based practices.
 • Monitoring and evaluation of funded programming to ensure the
   quality and content of funded services.

decision making processes in order to make more appropriate life

they act and take responsibility for the actions they take.

Target Population (male only):
• Sentenced felony offenders housed at the main jail
• Presumptive Prison or Straddle Cell offenders
• High risk/high need (as determined using COMPAS)

  and 0-6 or higher for probation violations will be served if they
  are determined to be high risk/need based on a COMPAS
  assessment.
• Following successful completion in the CBT group, offenders
  serving a split sentence may be released to serve the remainder of
  their sentence at Alternative Directions residential program if
  agreed to by Alternative Directions staff, the supervising
  probation agent and the judge.
