1 Michigan Department of Corrections Office of Community Corrections Office of Community Corrections was created pursuant to Public Act 511 of 1988, as an autonomous agency. Executive Order No 1995-16 transferred the OCC to the Department of Corrections. OCC was originally established as an unit within FOA. In 2006, as part of the DOC re-organization OCC was placed under the PCDA. Recently, the Director announced that PDCA will be dissolved and OCC will be aligned within the Executive Bureau.
2 Michigan Department of Corrections Office of Community Corrections Public Act 511 of 1988, created State and local partnerships to reduce prison commitments and promote effective jail utilization through comprehensive correctional strategies.
3 State Community Corrections Board Priorities The State Community Corrections Board adopted priorities to strengthen the focus on State and local community corrections policy, practice and programming. Reduce prison admissions for: Straddle Cell Offenders Probation violators Emphasis on the use of community-based sanctions and services for straddle cell offenders. Creative use of jail time in conjunction with other community- based supervision for priority offenders.
4 Comprehensive Plans and Services 53 CCABs comprising 74 counties were awarded grants. Funds were awarded to support nearly 300 local programs and services. Probation Residential Services 53 CCABs were allocated residential services in 63 counties. Drunk Driver Jail Reduction & Community Treatment Program Grants were awarded to 40 CCABs Since the inception of the program in January 2004, the number of drunk driver offenders in programs on a monthly average has increased from 285 to 1,301 through September 2009.

7 MDOC Statistical Reports indicate that in 1989 the prison commitment rate (PCR) was 34.7% (11,825 offenders) and decreased to 25% in the mid 1990’s and remained relatively stable through 2003. During 2003, the Department placed renewed emphasis on the use of community corrections sanctions/services for specific offender populations. As a result, the rate steadily declined to 20.6% through FY 2005. In FY 2006 the rate climbed back to 21.7% as a result of some highly publicized crimes earlier in the year. In the past few years the rated has steadily declined - 18.8% through FY 2009. If the PCR in 2009 was similar to the 1989 PCR (34.7%), MDOC would have had incarcerated nearly 9,000 more offenders at a cost of well over $250 million. Impact on Prison Commitments
