Mission Statement

Cass/Pulaski Community Corrections is committed to improving the quality of life of the program participants and the community by applying effective evidence based programs that produce positive choices, constructive behavior and accountability from the program participants, thereby reducing their criminal actions.

Agency Description

Cass/Pulaski Community Corrections is a county based governmental unit that was established to provide community based programs for offenders in our criminal justice system and offenders transitioning from the Indiana Department of Corrections. The department is governed by an advisory board and subject to state and local statues and regulations. Additionally, the department is required to follow policy and procedures set out by the Indiana Department of Corrections and the Indiana Association of Community Corrections Grant Act Counties (IACCAC).

The Department's primary programs are electronic monitoring home detention, work release, community service and therapeutic programming. Review of the past three (3) years identify that, on average, the home detention program supervises seventy-five (75) adult or juvenile offenders and the residential work release program supervises fifty (50) adult offenders. It should be noted that work release program consistently holds a waiting list of up to ten (10) clients. Clients waiting to enter into the program are most generally housed in the Cass County Jail.

Through the Home Detention and Work Release programs the department operates work crews which complete over two hundred (200) hours of community services per week. Projects completed include maintenance for county and governmental property and services to non-for profit agencies.

All clients enrolled into community corrections programming undergo a risk/needs assessment, and based on said assessment are administered a case plan to address areas of need. Programming includes; assisting clients in obtaining employment, facilitating evidence based courses that deal with substance abuse and cognitive behavioral issues, and aid in community peer support program.
