What is Community Corrections? 
Community Corrections is a partnership between the Oregon Department of Corrections and Wasco County that serves to provide a cost-effective means to supervise sentenced individuals while assisting them through rehabilitation. Statewide, community corrections agencies manage over 32,000 offenders who have been placed under supervision by the Oregon State Circuit Courts (through Probation or Local Control Post Prison) or the State of Oregon's Board of Parole and Post-Prison. Since 1997, counties in Oregon became locally responsible supervising individuals released from custody who reside within their county.
