Welcome to the Washington County

Community Corrections Department

 

Enhancing public safety by promoting positive behavior change

Washington County Community Corrections serves an important role in keeping our community safe. We work to prevent the recurrence of crime among adult offenders by supervising them and connecting them with the resources they need to change problem behavior. We supervise approximately 3600 offenders using a range of evidence-based strategies, while working in partnership with the Courts, law enforcement, and the state Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision. In addition to community supervision, we operate the 215-bed Community Corrections Center, a transitional facility that offers a range of services and programs to assist residents to successfully return from custody to the community.

  • The Community Corrections Center is a 215-bed custody facility 
    that prepares people serving sentences to successfully transition back into 
    the community. It offers a secure,structured living environment, while focusing 
    on accountability, employment, treatment, and skill building.

  • The Probation and Parole Division supervises approximately 3600 offenders, holding them accountable to the conditions of their supervision while supporting their efforts to live successfully in the community.

  • The Center for Counseling & Victims' Services provides counseling, advocacy, training, education and referral services that help liberate people from the effects of criminal harm, and encourages healthy relationships.

  • The Volunteer Program offers opportunities for work study, undergraduate and graduate internships. Additionally, free counseling services are offered through the Washington County Counseling Program.
