Thinking Outside the Bars
The Oakland County Community Corrections Advisory Board (OCCCAB) was successful at securing funding from the State in 1994, for it’s Comprehensive Plan. Since then, the OCCCAB has developed a strong collaboration and cooperation from all components of the criminal justice system in Oakland County. The plan is updated each year in order to review the effectiveness of existing programs, as well as to create new programs as needed.
The Oakland County Community Corrections Division provides a wide array of programs and services for individuals involved in the criminal justice system.
