Through Community Corrections

Among the recent spate of criminal justice reforms in Massachusetts has been the expansion of access to the Probation Department's Community Corrections Centers (CCCs) as a means of reducing reliance on jails and prisons. CCCs can now be accessed for pretrial services and treatment, and probation officers can refer probationers to CCCs to fulfill specific conditions of probation.

This program will explain these changes, describe all the pathways to CCCs, and outline how CCCs incorporate evidence-based practices to reduce recidivism and strengthen communities.

Introductory remarks will be provided by Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Chief Justice Ralph D. Gants and Massachusetts Trial Court Chief Justice Paula M. Carey.

This program qualifies for three hours of CPCS CLE credits for the adult criminal trial panel.
