Criminal Justice Resource Center - Community Based Corrections
information provided by: Durham System of Care
The Criminal Justice Resource Center provides four community based corrections programs for adult offenders, the Community Intervention Center (CIC), the Treatment for Effective Community Supervision (TECS), the Second Chance Program and the Reentry Program. Individuals must be at least 18 years old, Durham County residents and on supervised probation, post-release supervision or parole. Community Intervention Center (CIC) is a new program provided through a contractual agreement with the NC Department of Public Safety that provides substance abuse treatment, cognitive behavioral interventions, and employment assistance. Individuals must be referred by a probation officer due to non-compliance and substance abuse. This program is considered to be a last chance before an offender is returned to Court and probation revocation is recommended. Treatment for Effective Community Supervision Program (TECS) is intended to provide cognitive behavioral programming, substance abuse services and linkages to community resources for the high risk adult offender population located in Durham County for the North Carolina Department of Public Safety (NCDPS). Through the use of these programs, it is the intent of NCDPS to reduce recidivism and the rate of probation and post release supervision revocations. The Second Chance Program is a substance abuse treatment program designed for probationers or parolees. Individuals are referred through TASC (Treatment Accountability for Safer Communities) or directly through the Courts.
