History and Mission

History and Mission

Since its inception in 1985, Shelby County Community Corrections has served the county and community by providing incarceration alternatives to more than 10,000 participating individuals. The agency operates on the premise that through strict adherence to the eight evidence-based practice principles, we will reduce the risk of reoffending and overall recidivism rates on a local level. This endeavor has been made possible through grant money from the Indiana Department of Corrections and project income from participant user fees.
