Thumbnail previewDuring National Pretrial, Probation, and Parole Supervision Week July 13-19, 2016, the Community Corrections Collaborative Network (CCCN) wishes to acknowledge the dedication of all professionals in our field. We also want to share a new resource to the community,  An Opinion Survey of the Community Corrections Collaborative Network: Where the Community Corrections Field Is Going and What It Needs to Get There.

In 2014, a network of membership associations that represent community corrections practitioners—the Community Corrections Collaborative Network (CCCN)—surveyed their memberships to gauge opinions about the state of the field. The survey sought to identify what community corrections practitioners believe are the significant issues and opportunities facing the field. CCCN’s goal with the survey is to bring a fresh perspective about where the field needs to go and what community corrections will need to get there, and allow those engaged in the national criminal justice reform debate to hear directly from those working with most people under correctional control.

"[The field should"] focus on the necessity of inter-agency cooperation between community corrections, law enforcement, child protective services and treatment providers."

– Survey Respondent

The survey results show that the field embraces key elements of the new approach CCCN says the field needs to take: Key benchmarks include increasing reliance on evidence-based practices, research and data driven approaches. The survey results show strong support for a field that prioritizes innovation, systems change, collaboration and training.

CCCN is sponsored by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) and is comprised of the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA),  the Association of Paroling Authorities International (APAI), the Federal Probation and Pretrial Officers Association (FPPOA), the International Community Corrections Association (ICCA), the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP), the National Association of Pretrial Services Agencies (NAPSA), and the National Association of Probation Executives (NAPE)--each a leading representative of the professionals who enrich our industry.
