What is Vigo County Community Corrections (VCCC)?

VCCC is a non-profit governmental entity providing the Court's with an alternative to facility incarceration through various components (listed below), while insuring the public safety.

VCCC receives funding from the Indiana Department of Correction (approximately 35% of the annual budget of $607,691.00). Offenders are also assessed a fee for utilizing the services of VCCC (each component will list the various fees).

VCCC has a staff of 12 full-time employees, and 8 part-time employees, with a diverse educational and experience history. For information on any positions that currently available, see the "Staff" page.

Services Provided

VCCC's purpose is to provide a diversion of target offenders from commitment to the local and state facilities, while insuring the public safety. "Target offenders" are non-violent felons who have been sentenced to a term of not more than four years, status offenders, traffic offenders, probation violators, and class A misdemeanants. The Program's goals over the years has remained constant--to provide sanctions other that local or state incarceration for Vigo County offenders, while keeping the public safe, and to assist in the rehabilitation of the offender. Secondly, to aid in the overcrowding of the local and state facilities by working in conjunction with the Courts to develop new programs that provide for sanctions for offenders.

VCCC is currently working with the Vigo County Commissioner's and the Vigo County Sheriff to acquire a site for a future Work Release Facility. Hopefully, this will be ready for operation in late 2001.
