CCC is a collaborative endeavor of former and present public officials, researchers, treatment and correctional professionals representing local, state, federal and public policy interests.

With increasing public attention to the effectiveness and costs of corrections, particularly problems of reentry, recidivism and public safety, the Center was created in 1987 to improve public safety by promoting the benefits of community-based sanctions as well as specific program initiatives based on current research and actual program application.

OUR PURPOSE is to help inform public policy through public education and communication with criminal justice officials, including those in law enforcement, both prosecution and defense, corrections, treatment, legislative bodies and community and civic groups and the public media.
