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.

Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA)

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.

The Nurse Family Partnership (NFP) program, primarily run by HHSA, facilitates and pays for offenders who are deemed appropriate to be enrolled in NFP as well as other parenting programs. The Probation Department facilitates referrals of the males and females under our supervision who meet NFP criteria. The grant funding the program focuses specifically on first time mothers between 14-25 and fathers between the ages of 14-25. This grant also allows for additional resources for those offenders who are pregnant or have young children such as the Nurturing Fathers treatment program and the Positive Parenting Program (Triple P). Referrals for these parenting programs may also be made by local law enforcement, CFS, the Public Defender’s Office, the District Attorney’s Office and other local providers via the Probation Department.

Northern Valley Catholic Social Services

Participants Actions To Housing (PATH) is dedicated to assisting offenders with finding and keeping safe and affordable housing. They provide workshops aimed at teaching offenders in areas such as how to find safe and affordable housing, how to be a good tenant, and how to budget their income. They keep a current list of available housing resources and work with local landlords to develop more. Offenders who are compliant with their supervision can be evaluated for participation in the rent subsidy program aimed at assisting offenders with payment of rents and deposits, as well as some moving costs.

BI Incorporated/GEO Group

The Day Reporting Center (DRC) provides intensive services to offenders to address their top criminogenic needs in order to create lasting change in offender behavior, thereby reducing recidivism. The DRC is open seven days a week and offenders progress through three phases and aftercare in order to complete this program.

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 two probation staff assigned to the CCC and two assigned to work collaboratively at the Shasta County Jail. 

There is one Compliance Officer housed at the CCC. This officer works with other probation officers and officers within the local law enforcement community to maintain consistent and regular personal contact with offenders on formal supervision and those on SOR with the goal of reinforcing accountability by focusing on those offenders who disregard their supervision and treatment requirements.

Shasta Technical Educational Program Unified Partnership (STEP-UP) is a collaborative effort between multiple agencies to provide offenders the opportunity to participate in one-year certification programs through Shasta College. Two Probation Assistants, housed at the CCC, provide assistance and support to offenders in their successful transition to, and while attending, Shasta College.

The Successful Transitions on Probation and Parole (STOPP), is a monthly event, conducted by the Probation Department in conjunction with the California Department of Corrections, Parole Division, to provide access to treatment and services for those offenders being placed on formal probation, post release community supervision (PRCS), mandatory supervision (MS) and parole. Offenders being released from custody and under the supervision of either agency are required to attend this mandatory monthly meeting within 30 days of release to expose offenders to necessary treatment and services in one-location as quickly as possible. 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. The community support for STOPP has been significant and this event allows offenders quick access to local treatment and services.

Shasta County received a Proud Parenting Grant to support the Nurse Family Partnership (NFP) program through our county Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA). This program, primarily run by HHSA, facilitates and pays for offenders who are deemed appropriate to be enrolled in NFP as well as parenting programs. The purpose of the involvement of the Probation Department with the Proud Parenting Grant is to facilitate referrals of the males and females under our supervision who meet NFP criteria. The grant focuses specifically on first time mothers between 14-25 and fathers between the ages of 14-25. This grant also allows for additional resources for those offenders who are pregnant or have young children. Those offenders who are engaged in the parenting of their children are less likely to be using drugs, abusing their children, and committing other crimes. Those children are also less likely to be involved long-term in the criminal justice system. In addition to making referrals to the Nurse Family Partnership nurse, the Probation Department will make referrals to parenting programs including the Nurturing Fathers treatment program. This program is a 13/week evidence-based parenting program focusing on engaging fathers with their children. Referrals will also be made to the Positive Parenting Program (Triple P). Triple P is also an evidence-based program that, after parents are evaluated, provides parenting skills for parents as needed. Referrals for these parenting programs may also be made by local law enforcement, CFS, the Public Defender’s Office, the District Attorney’s Office and other local providers via the Probation Department.  

There is one High Risk Transition Officer housed at the CCC. This officer is assigned offenders who are deemed high risk to reoffend based our evidence-based risk assessment tool. The purpose of this transition caseload is to work closely with these offenders within the first 30 days of supervision to assist with successful re-entry into the community. This officer works closely with the other staff assigned to the CCC to create a treatment plan with the offender to assist in the successful transition to a supervision caseload.

There is one officer housed at the CCC who is assigned to our “Striker” Caseload. This caseload is comprised of offenders with two designated “strike” offenses on their record. The intent of this caseload is to provide close supervision within the community coupled with the appropriate treatment and services to reduce recidivism and future lengthy prison commitments. 

There is one officer housed at the CCC assigned to assist with offenders exiting prison on PRCS. This PRCS Investigations Officer reviews cases and submits to CDCR the appropriate conditions of supervision promote community safety and aid each offender in their successful re-entry into the community.
