The Community Transition Program (CTP) component of Community
Corrections is for clients transitioning from a prison environment back
into the community. IDOC transports the clients directly to Community
Corrections or to the jail of the sentencing court. If clients are
transported to the jail, one of Community Corrections’ staff members will
pick up the client from the jail. Community transition clients must have
a place of residence before they are released; or they must stay in the jail
until residential arrangements can be made.
CTP clients are placed on home detention monitoring equipment just
the same as regular home detention clients, and must adhere to the
rules of home detention. A surveillance officer will visit the client the
same as he would other home detention clients.
While enrolled as a CTP program participant the only cost incurred by
the client is the $25.00 charged for the drug screens done on hookup
and randomly thereafter until released from home detention. The
Department of Corrections pays the daily monitoring fee for CTP clients.
The CTP program coordinator at Community Corrections will contact
the participant to establish the boundaries of what is expected of a client
while on the Community Transition Program. Primarily these are to
maintain a residence and working phone, seek and maintain
employment, and continue with any counseling requirements imposed
while incarcerated or as recommended as part of being released to the
CTP program. Clients are allowed to attend church services within a
reasonable distance from their home, work, attend counseling if
indicated, and seek medical and dental care at their own expense while
on the CTP program.
Courtesy supervision of CTP clients may be requested should a client
need to live outside WCRCC’s area of supervision. Should courtesy
supervision be denied, the client will be required to live in our region or
remain in jail.
Sentencing courts are notified when the client completes or violates
the CTP program.
