Scott County Community Corrections serves an important role in providing public safety by supervising probationers and parolees living in our community. We work with these offenders to address the behaviors and attitudes which drive their involvement in criminal behavior.
We strive to provide effective services to offenders and good program outcomes to the community. To achieve these goals, we use approaches and interventions which have been proven effective in reducing an offender's risk for continued involvement in criminal behavior and the likelihood they will re-offend, which improves public safety.
Community Corrections also provides services for the First Judicial District Court in the form of bail studies, monitoring court imposed conditions of release (such as drug testing on persons awaiting trial), and completing reports to help in sentencing.
In addition, Scott County Community Corrections provides coordination with law enforcement and other agencies, such as diversionary programs for individuals as referred by the County Attorney’s Office.
