The Community Corrections Center offers low risk inmates a better chance at success once they are released from the Cumberland County Jail. Sentenced men and women who are low risk and are within six moths of release can transfer to the Community Corrections Center and become fully involved in the process of re-entry into a life free of incarceration.
The Community Corrections Center inmates participate in programs such as community service and work release. They attend college and work on the Sheriff's Office campus. The programs are designed to gradually decrease the intensity of the supervision and structure imposed, while gradually increasing the offender's responsibility for self.
Many inmates that begin a job while in the program, retain that employment well after they are released from jail. As well, many inmates that begin attending college continue through to graduation. The program is a win/win for everyone involved.
