Community Corrections is a state funded, county controlled intensive supervision probation (ISP) program designed to develop community-based correctional sentencing options for adult clients who would otherwise be incarcerated in local or state facilities.
The mission of Douglas County Community Corrections is to achieve agency success through Organizational Development, Evidence Based Practices and Collaboration
Intensive Supervised Probation (ISP)
- Intensive Supervision Probation (ISP) targets adults convicted of Level 5-7 offenses that are predominantly non-violent felonies, including some felony drug offenses.
- Sentencing follows the Kansas Sentencing Guidelines Grid established in 1993.
- Clients must be placed on adult ISP by the Court and are required to sign an Order of Assignment to Community Corrections, which lists some of the client's conditions of probation.
- The program attempts to exclude persons who have a long and serious history of resorting to violence and persons who have a history of aggressive sexually deviant behavior.
Each client is required to enter into an intensive supervised plan that may include vocational, educational, psychological, alcohol and drug treatment, and/or a cognitive skills program. In addition, home visits may be conducted by an Intensive Supervision Officer and/or Surveillance Officer to verify compliance with their conditions of supervision. Clients are supervised based on a risk and needs scoring instrument, which determines the appropriate supervision level. Through intensive supervision, Douglas County Community Corrections staff closely monitors the activities of clients and provide opportunities for clients to prepare themselves to remain law abiding and contributing community members.
Clients are required to make regular restitution payments to victims and pay court costs. Additional fees may be paid by some clients in the form of reimbursements to help defray program costs. Others are given the opportunity to pay off court ordered costs by participating in the Community Service Work Program.
