AIC - Alternative Incarceration Centers

Sentenced - Felony - PA511 Charges​

Alternative Incarceration Centers (AIC) offer a community-based, 24 hour-a-day supervised sentencing alternative for use by Circuit Court Judges. Individuals sentenced (for a non-violent felony offense) to an AIC must adhere to strict supervision and behavior standards, participate in various therapeutic interventions (e.g., substance abuse and/or mental health counseling), as well as financially contribute to their care once employed. AICs are encouraged to establish partnerships with community agencies to further assist offenders in meeting a multiple of needs.

Offenders are required to sign a Release of Information so that their Probation Agent can be apprised of their progress and status while in the program. Oakland County Community Corrections uses facilities that are contracted through the Michigan Department of Corrections.

Eligibility:

  • Males and females, 17 years or older.
  • Sentenced felony offenders who score moderate to high overall risk potential and / or score moderate or high substance abuse need score based on their COMPAS.
  • Pretrial felony defendants who score moderate to high overall risk potential and / or score moderate or high substance abuse need score based on their COMPAS.
  • AICs may be used as part of a structured sentence whereby the offender serves some jail time before being released to the program.
    • In these instances, program placement and transportation are coordinated by Community Corrections with the individual program.

No cost incurred by the offender, however, if the offender is working, the agencies can charge up to 35% of the offender's income. Funding is provided by MDOC/Office of Community Alternatives State Grant.

Each individual center has policies regarding visitors, what a resident can bring and residents maintaining employment during their treatment.  Please contact the appropriate center for their policies. Click here for AIC Facility contact information.
