The Community Corrections Center (CCC) is a “one stop shop” consisting of multiagency collaboration where offenders are provided with orientation related to their formal supervision requirements, assessment of their criminogenic and other needs, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and supervision in a coordinated fashion. Evidence based programming is utilized to facilitate successful reentry of offenders into the community after incarceration, and/or sentencing, in order to reduce recidivism.

A Mental Health Clinician is available five days a week to conduct assessments for offenders who have mental health issues and/or substance abuse addiction issues. The clinician provides the results of these assessments to the supervising probation officer and assists in referring the offender to the appropriate treatment programs in an effort to assist offenders in dealing with underlying issues that lead to criminality.

A Community Health Advocate is available to assist offenders in obtaining general aid, food stamps, and medical insurance. Most offenders are released from custody without the means to provide for themselves or their families. A Community Health Advocate can help offenders navigate the paperwork required for services. Offenders who are provided with monetary support and food are then free to work toward other goals, such as obtaining employment, without the need to resort to criminality.

A certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor is housed at the CCC and conducts assessments on offenders who may need substance abuse treatment. The counselor assesses for eligibility for drug Medi-Cal benefits through Partnership Health Plan. She makes direct referrals for residential treatment, sober living and outpatient services, as needed.

Shasta County Probation Department

The Supervised Own Recognizance Program (SOR) supervises select pre-sentenced offenders in order to reduce the burden of overcrowding at the jail, as well as increase the number of offenders appearing at court hearings. Offenders are screened using an evidence-based pre-release tool to determine appropriateness for the program. Some offenders are placed on GPS monitoring to assist with compliance while on the program. There are Probation staff working collaboratively inside the Shasta County Jail, as well as Probation staff at the Community Corrections Center who are assigned to supervise offenders in the SOR program.

During the STOPP meeting, offenders are required to meet with a minimum at five service providers and sign up for a minimum of one treatment program or service.
