Oregon Association of Community Corrections Directors

About Us

Community Corrections is responsible for the supervision of convicted adult felons whom the courts and parole board have placed in the community under a limited, structured state of freedom. The overall goal is to protect the community by helping offenders become law-abiding, contributing citizens. Community Corrections is normally located at the county level of government, either under the administration of county commissioners or sheriffs. In a couple instances, it is administered by the Oregon Department of Corrections.

OACCD Membership consists of the Director of each County Parole and Probation office in the State of Oregon; we meet bi-monthly.

In Oregon, there are currently about 29,000 adult offenders on probation or post-prison supervision at an average cost of $14 per person per day, as compared with 14,000 incarcerated in prison at approximately $110 per day.
